Internet Vikings, a specialist infrastructure and business development provider for igaming and online betting incumbents, has moved to expand its board naming Stefan Backlund as corporate consultant.
Backlund, a specialist in B2B marketing, is the former VP of Marketing for Trustly, the leading provider of e-merchant payment solutions, and the European marketing chief for Scandinavian Fintech Klarna, which is rising fast.
Confirming the selection of Backlund as a new member of the board, Internet Vikings governance reports that the executive will be a key advisor to the newly formed marketing team of the company.
Stefan Buckland said: “This company has been growing steadily for 12 years and has developed a highly effective infrastructure. The fact that it has attracted such experts of the iGaming industry as Peter Ekmark and Jesper Kärrbrink proves that it is on the threshold of the major breakthrough now. I’m delighted to join this terrific team in such a special moment.”
Internet Vikings announced the establishment of its board in December 2019, headed by former Mr Green Chief Executive Jesper Kärrbrink as Chairman of the company.
Peter Ekmark, CEO of Internet Vikings, will be advised by Kärrbrink and Backlund as the company undertakes its next stage of corporate development across multiple sectors.
Commenting on Backlund’s Board appointment, CEO Peter Ekmark said: “The experience that Stefan has will help our young and creative marketing team to reach a new stage of maturity. I see it as a perfect combination of wisdom and knowledge with ambition and drive”.
