Former Entain CEO issues statement after “transformational” year 

People News

Former Entain CEO Jette Nygaard-Andersen has released a statement on LinkedIn following her resignation.

After four years at the company, and three years as CEO, I’ve decided to leave Entain. It hasn’t been an easy decision to make. First and foremost, I want to thank colleagues and partners for their hard-work, support, and dedication over the past few transformational years. I’ve really enjoyed working with you all.

Entain is fundamentally a better and stronger company today than it has ever been. Through a multitude of twists, turns and challenges, we’ve transformed the business from the GVC of old to one with the highest standards of governance, compliance, player safety, a new effective strategy setting the Company up for further growth in all markets, old and new, and excellent quality of earnings.

Over the past four years, we have dramatically shifted the company to be a responsible operator, a reputable employer, strategically put the customer front and centre of business operations, worked on transforming the technology to make it future fit, diversified the portfolio and so much more. That luminous GVC orange evolved to an iconic bright Entain purple and Entain became a business that partners want to work with, people want to work for, and customers trust with their entertainment.

Thanks to the professionalism and passion of Entainers around the world, the business tackled challenges such as the pandemic head-on, navigated a path to 100% regulated operations and always thought of the customer. As a result, Entain is now a business that has scaled and operates in over 30 territories with 30,000 employees.

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger 😊. There is enormous opportunity to innovate in the gaming industry. What has worked in the past will not always work in the present and this industry needs strategic thinkers and innovators that are passionate about doing the right thing for customers. That said, I am grateful that I have met and worked with some brilliant and talented individuals over the last four years that live and breathe this mindset.

I am taking a break over this holiday period to decompress before deciding on my next executive opportunity. So, on that note, I hope everyone has had an enjoyable festive period and I look forward to connecting with you in 2024.

Happy New Year!
