Transition of Leadership: James Curwen Named Yggdrasil's New CEO as Bjorn Krantz Steps Down

Yggdrasil, the renowned iGaming provider, is undergoing a change in leadership as James Curwen is appointed as the new CEO, set to take the reins on October 1st.

With a notable background as the Chief Online Officer of OPAP, a leading Greek Operator, James Curwen is poised to lead the company into a new era, succeeding Bjorn Krantz, the current Chief Executive Officer. Krantz will remain actively involved in guiding the company through a smooth transition until his departure at the end of September.

Reflecting on the change, Bjorn Krantz remarked, "Throughout my journey with Yggdrasil, my focus has been on driving transformation. As the company embarks on its next chapter of global growth, I believe it's the right time for me to pass on the torch. James Curwen is a seasoned industry professional, and his wealth of experience and leadership skills will be instrumental as the company enters a phase of sustainable and profitable expansion. It's his moment to lead."

Itai Frieberger, Yggdrasil’s Chairman of the Board, shared his thoughts, "The Board is excited to announce the appointment of James Curwen as Yggdrasil's new CEO. We have full confidence in his capabilities to steer the business to new heights. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Bjorn for his dedicated service and contributions during his four-year tenure at Yggdrasil."
