Aspire Global (ASG) has announced the addition of two new members to its board, Carl Klingberg and Fredrik Burvall. In addition, the board has selected Carl Klingberg to serve as Chairman of the board.
The new Chairman of the Board Carl Klingberg has previously served as CEO of Ongame / bwin Games AB, at the time one of the world’s largest online poker providers. He is also chairman of Mackmyra Whiskey. His background is a degree from the Stockholm School of Economics with focus on marketing and computing.
Fredrik Burvall, who stepped down as CEO of Cherry in January 2017 after a number of very successful years, is now active in several boards. He holds an MBA in Economics from Stockholm University.
Carl Klingberg said: “Aspire Global is an exciting company facing accelerated development in a rapidly growing market. I feel honoured to take on this assignment. I have great respect for Aspire’s management and what it has accomplished. I will try to contribute with my knowledge in the field, my experiences and my network so that the company can continue to develop in the same positive way.”
In welcoming new directors Carl Klingberg and Fredrik Burvall to the Board, Tsachi Maimon, CEO of Aspire Global said: These appointments provide additional experience and expertise to the organisation, complementing a strong group of existing directors and the management team. The knowledge and networks our new directors provide will support new strategic initiatives and strengthen the organisation’s connections within the Online Gaming sector. The fact that both new Directors are Swedes is no coincidence, there is a cluster of gaming skills in Stockholm, and also a number of partners and subcontractors to the gaming industry. Both Carl and Fredrik held senior positions in the industry’s leading companies, their addition will contribute greatly in achieving Aspire Globals growth targets”.
Aspire Global develops and markets a platform for casino games, complemented by a full suite of professional services for gaming operators. Today they have a position as a unique, market leading provider. ASG focuses on regulated gaming markets, an area that has showed strong growth in recent years. Numerous countries within the EU have now regulated its gaming markets, while Sweden is expected to follow and establish its own during 2019.
