As MTG prepares to split off into two companies, new leadership team members have been put in place.
Peter Nørrelund becomes MTG’s executive VP, head of product development and incubation and co-CEO of DreamHack. Nørrelund takes up his new position at MTG from July 1. His new post as DreamHack co-CEO comes with immediate effect. Nørrelund is currently executive VP and CEO of MTG Sport and will continue to be an advisor to the president and CEO of Nordic Entertainment Group after the split, focusing on the company’s sports rights portfolio.
Johan Levinsson has been tapped as MTG’s group general counsel. Levinsson is currently head of legal for M&A and corporate legal affairs at MTG. He joined the company in February 2017 and takes up his new position from July 1.
As previously announced, Jørgen Madsen Lindemann will be president and CEO of the new MTG, and Maria Redin will be CFO. Additional new leadership appointments will be announced in due course.
Madsen Lindemann said: “Peter Nørrelund and Johan Levinsson have both played key roles in building MTG’s position as a leading global digital entertainer. Their experience and passion will be instrumental as we develop and expand our portfolio of hyper-growth global companies in esports, online gaming and digital video content.”
