Catena Media has confirmed Michael Daly as its new CEO, with the change effective from 1 March 2021.
Daly has been in charge of Catena Media’s US operations since April 2018. Prior to the role, he held various positions in the casino and online gaming industry, including EVP North America for GAN, Automated Cash Systems CEO and VP online gaming at SHFL Entertainment.
“It has been exciting working with Catena Media’s US growth engine these last few years,” said Daly. “And now the opportunity to work directly with all our global teams is even more exhilarating, as it is a much bigger growth engine.”
Interim CEO Göran Blomberg, meanwhile, will resume his position as chairman, with Öystein Engebretsen to resume his role of board member.
“I have great trust and confidence in Michael as new CEO of the company,” said interim CEO Blomberg. “He is a true leader with a deep knowledge of the company as well as the business. His achievement in developing the US market speaks for itself and I am convinced he is the right person to take Catena into the next development phase.”
Engebretsen, interim chairman of the board, added: “Mr Daly has an excellent track record and the board is confident that he will lead Catena Media into a phase of further growth. The board also thanks Mr Blomberg for his commitment and contribution during the transition period.”
