Internet Vikings, a premium provider of hosting services, domain name management, data and marketing solutions, announced that Maria Helmersson has stepped down as chief financial officer for the company. Karin Thunholm took over the position of CFO with effect from January 18, 2021.
“Karin has a solid track record of driving results and accelerating growth, and we look forward to welcoming her to our team. With her impressive background in finance and iGaming, she is an excellent fit for this new role, ”said Peter Ekmark, CEO of Internet Vikings.
During her career, Karin Thunholm has worked in start-up phases with medium-sized companies in various industries. In 2006 she entered the iGaming industry with the Maria Group. Since then she has been part of Unibet / Kindred, Cherry iGaming / ComeOn! and before joining Internet Vikings, Casumo Group. Membership in executive teams and the board of directors has given her extensive insight and experience in running fast-paced, growing businesses in highly regulated environments.
“The reason I decided after 14 years to leave B2C iGaming and get into the B2B business is the opportunity to become part of a company with a global and broad customer base in various industries during an exciting phase. I believe that my years of experience in finance in general, and iGaming in particular, will contribute to the growth of Internet Vikings and that together we will take it to a new level in the years to come. The amazing attitude and the people who are part of this company speak to me and I look forward to being a part of it, ”says Karin.
Jesper Kärrbrink, CEO, comments: “Karin brings over 14 years of experience in iGaming, which is extremely valuable to Internet Vikings given the focus of our marketing efforts. It becomes a valuable asset for operational accuracy and lean management across the organization. “
Internet Vikings got off to a strong start into the new year by strengthening its leadership team and preparing to receive ISO 27001 certification for two product lines – hosting services and domain portfolio management – in the first quarter of 2021. In addition, the Vikings are planning to set up a new data center in Singapore to strengthen the company’s position in the Asian market.
