Malta-based Relax Gaming, an iGaming aggregator and supplier of unique content, has appointed Kirsten O’Neill as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

Kirsten moves into this role having joined Relax Gaming in 2021 where she held the position of group finance manager. Prior to her appointment she worked at both NetEnt and Yggdrasil Gaming as a key member of their finance teams.

This promotion further cements Relax Gaming’s commitment to nurturing top talent and promoting from within, with Martin Stålros recently making the step up to CEO after spending nearly a decade as chief operating officer at the company.

Longstanding CFO Markus Kruk, who has held the position for nine years leading up to Kirsten’s appointment will move into the role of chief corporate development officer. This will see him focus on exploring new product verticals and strategic partnerships as the brand continues to grow rapidly in key markets worldwide

Commenting on her appointment, Kirsten said: “I could not be prouder to take the next step in my career and become CFO at Relax Gaming. This is a special company that has played a huge role in my development over the last several years.

“I am truly excited to continue all of the great work that Markus has achieved ensuring that we are sustainable as a business and I look forward to what lies ahead.”

Recently appointed CEO Martin Stålros added: “We are delighted to announce Kirsten as Relax Gaming’s second-ever CFO. She has been a pivotal part of our team for some time and has a fantastic reputation as someone that can be trusted to help us towards our next major milestones as we enter our latest chapter. I am thrilled to see her take the next step of her journey as she genuinely deserves this opportunity.”

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Markus for his outstanding efforts as CFO, we both joined the business around the same time, and he has been instrumental to the journey Relax Gaming has taken as a company. I look forward to his continued journey as Chief Corporate Development Officer, and to working together closely in his new role.”
