Internet Vikings, a premium provider of hosting services, domain name management, data and marketing solutions, announced that Maria Helmersson stepped down from her role as the company’s Chief Financial Officer. Karin Thunholm assumed the position of CFO, effective January 18, 2021.

“Karin brings a sound track record of driving results and speeding up growth, and we are happy to welcome her to our team. Her impressive background in both finance and iGaming makes her a great fit for this new role,” said Peter Ekmark, Internet Vikings’ CEO.

During her career, Karin Thunholm has worked with companies in start-up phases to mid-size corporations in various sectors. In 2006, she joined the iGaming industry with Maria Group. Since then, she has been part of Unibet/Kindred, Cherry iGaming/ComeOn! and before joining Internet Vikings, Casumo Group. Being part of executive teams and board of directors has given her vast insights and experience in leading fast-paced, growing companies in heavily regulated environments.

“The reason I decided to leave B2C iGaming after 14 years and move into B2B is the possibility to become part of a company in an exciting phase, with a global and broad customer base in multiple industries. I believe my vast experience within finance in general and iGaming especially will contribute to the Internet Vikings’ growth and that we together will take it to new heights in the coming years. The amazing attitude and people forming part of this company is something that appeals to me and that I look forward to being part of”, says Karin.

Jesper Kärrbrink, the Chairman of the Board, comments: “Karin brings over 14 years of experience in iGaming, which is extremely valuable for Internet Vikings given the focus of our marketing efforts. She will become a valuable asset driving operational rigour and lean management across the company”.

Internet Vikings started the year strong by enforcing its leadership team and preparing to receive ISO 27001 certification in the first quarter of 2021 for two product verticals – hosting services and domain portfolio management. Besides that, Vikings plan to set up a new data centre in Singapore, which will strengthen the company’s positions in the Asian market.
Internet Vikings is a global IT-provider established in 2008 with HQ in Stockholm and over 80 employees in 6 countries. The full suite of services includes hosting services across the most relevant jurisdictions, domain names management, data and marketing solutions in the field of online brand protection, which makes Internet Vikings a one-stop-shop for iGaming operators.

Holland Casino’s Gross Income Down 54% in 2020
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Holland Casino has reported a gross income of €333m for the full year 2020, a 54% decrease from the prior-year period.

The operator reported a loss before corporate tax of €80.7m, a 190% decline from 2019. Visitor numbers meanwhile were down 60% year-on-year to 2.5 million, largely due to government restrictions amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, with the firm’s 14 branches closed for the majority of 2020.

Throughout the year, the venues were completely closed for 143 days, open with restrictions for 151 days, and open without restrictions for 71 days. Average spend per visit did, however, increase by 14% year-on-year to €133.

“Despite the constantly changing circumstances and major challenges that this crisis year caused, I firmly believe that we will get through it well,” Erwin van Lambaart, CEO of Holland Casino, said.

“This is due to the resilience of our people, general government support measures, focus on cost control and a clear strategic investment vision for the future. Together, this has meant that we were always able to anticipate the consequences of this crisis.”

Looking to the future, the operator commented: “Holland Casino is a cyclical company and will therefore suffer from the expected economic recession. Nevertheless, the company is optimistic about the future. The restructuring means that everyone is in the right place, the organization is more efficient and agile, and there is a future-proof new structure that guarantees continuity.”
