NetEnt Says Goodbye To CEO Theresa Hillman

NetEnt, the leading digital entertainment provider with luxury gaming solutions, has made another unlikely leap and announced Theresa Hillman’s retirement, effective immediately, three years after firing Per Eriksson, its CEO, and naming the company’s financial officer, Therese Hillman, as acting CEO.

In a LinkedIn post dated February 28, Therese Hillman announced her departure from the online gaming provider.

She said it had been a pleasure to meet and get know everyone during her years with NetEnt and Red Tiger, but then went on in her informal resignation note, to describe her three-year tenure as being a challenge from day one with a lot of tough decisions having to be made.

Seeing several company changes

During Hillman’s time at NetEnt, the company had to go through savings plans and reorganisations in addition to fresh and thrilling game sales, industry launches, the Red Tiger takeover, and financial expansion.

Hillman clarified that the party was newly introduced to Evolution and is now in the safest of hands.

“I am excited to see how the business will continue to develop and I am also looking forward to see the product innovations that will be offered to operators and players around the world,” added the outgoing CEO.

It appears to be a surprising decision with immediate effect for the world’s largest provider of digitally delivered gaming systems, particularly in these unpredictable times.

During Therese’s tenure as CEO, many objectives and deadlines were met, including good financial progress and the acquisition of a US gaming licence. Since 2018, the marketing strategist and former elite athlete has shown tremendous sales and business growth talent, with many more accomplishments.
