Svenska Spel Boosts Leadership Confirming Kajsa Nylander

After confirming Kajsa Nylander’s appointment as the company’s new sustainability manager, Svenska Spel has boosted its leadership team.

As part of  Nylander’s new role, which will start on January 27, 2020, as part of Svenska Spel’s sustainability plan, she will oversee the implementation of responsible gambling initiatives.

Joakim Mörnefält, Svenska Spel’s communications director, commented: “Kaja’s solid background in sustainability and change work will be of great benefit to Svenska Spel’s sustainability work with a focus on gaming responsibility.

“Her skills and experience give us the best possible conditions to further develop our leading position in gaming responsibility. With Kajsa on board we will be able to take the next step towards even better gaming responsibility tools and minimise the risk of players getting into gambling problems.

“Our goal is for our customers to enjoy entertainment and gaming enjoyment in a safe environment and with control over their gaming.”

At Systembolaget, a government-owned chain of liquor stores in Sweden, Nylander previously held the position of sustainability director. She has previously worked as EY’s Senior Manager for Climate Change & Sustainability Services and Respect Sustainable Business CEO.

Celebrating her new appointment Nylander added: “I look forward with great joy and enthusiasm to starting my position as sustainability manager at Svenska Spel. The Swedish gaming industry is an industry in change with the new gaming legislation, which makes it a very exciting time.

“Svenska Spel already has solid sustainability work, and I look forward to being able to participate and continue to develop our work on gaming responsibility and the Group’s other strategic sustainability issues.”

Scarlett Roa, who Nylander will be succeeding, leaves Svenska Spel in December. The Head of Sustainability’s position is part of Communication and Sustainability who will report to Joakim Mörnefält, Director of Communications.
