Stockholm, 13th June 2022 – Swedish slot specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, has appointed Panagiotis Chryssovitsanos CEO of Quickspin, effective immediately.
Daniel Lindberg, Founder and former CEO, has decided to hand over the helm of the successful slot company he founded with two friends 11 years ago. Lindberg will stay on board for a while to support Chryssovitsanos in the interim during his transition from COO to CEO.
Chryssovitsanos began his career with Quickspin as Chief Technology Officer in May 2013 and was most recently part of the management team as Chief Operating Officer. Before completing a near-decade with Quickspin, he previously spent ten years working in leading positions within the gaming industry, followed by three years in a management role in the consulting industry.
Daniel Lindberg, Quickspin Founder: “I’m very pleased to announce that I’m handing over the role as CEO to Panagiotis Chryssovitsanos. Having been with Quickspin for nearly a decade, and with his extensive knowledge of the company and the industry, Jotis is the perfect candidate. With his skills and expertise, I’m confident he’ll hit the ground running! I will stay on board for a while in a different role, to support him during his transition from COO to CEO.
Nearly 11 years have passed since I founded Quickspin together with my friends Mats and Joachim, and I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve created over the years: the progress we’ve made in the industry, what we have achieved as a team, and the company we have become.
Handing over to Jotis feels like a natural progression in the development of Quickspin. I’ve always said I wouldn’t leave until all the fundamental pieces for future success are in place, and that time is now! We’re in our strongest position ever: we have an amazing team, amazing products, and our outlined strategy for future success is extremely promising. It’s with great comfort that I’m handing over to Jotis and his team to lead Quickspin moving forward.”
Panagiotis Chryssovitsanos, Quickspin CEO: “It’s a great honor to be given this opportunity and I’m humbled by the trust Daniel has put in me, because he’s truly been living and breathing Quickspin for 11 years now. I agree with Daniel on where we stand and what the future holds. Today, we’re a stronger and more knowledgeable company in every way – one that’s in control of its business and destiny.
We have a fantastic team in place, and I’m very excited to explore what we can achieve together as a company. I’m also looking forward to work even more closely with our colleagues at Playtech, and I’m certain we will have some exciting news to share in the near future. There are many opportunities out there and I will work tirelessly in pursuit of our shared strategy and vision, to steer this ship into the future. I’m certain the best is yet to come!”
