    One of the things that is easy to lose sight of at times is that the online gambling world is still a business at the end of the day, and business deals and employee changes are a part of that. When a major position at a major company changes hands, that's worth sitting back and taking notice because of the implications that it can have on operations as a whole. This is the case with Evolution Gaming changing its Chief Financial Officer this fall.

    Changing of the CFO Guard

    The current CFO is Fredrik Svederman, and he's going to be leaving this fall. His replacement will be Jacob Kaplan, a man who has formerly been the CFO of Nordnet since 2010. This means he obviously has quite a bit of experience in this type of position in the same sort of industry, and Evolution Gaming should probably expect a pretty smooth transition as a result. Kaplan has a great history and is more than qualified for the position.

    For example, Kaplan has a MSc in Industrial Engineering and Business Management, and he also hlds a BSc in Business Administration and Finance. He previously held the Finance Director of Transaction Services Nordic position at Nasdaq OMX as well. Overall, it's clear to see that he's a great choice for the job, and there's no reason to expect anything less than great things from him in his new CFO position at Evolution. He's scheduled to begin work there before the beginning of December 2016.

    Current CFO Fredrik Svederman has been an important asset to the company for quite a while. He's contributed a great deal to the current position that Evolution Gaming has as the top live dealer games provider in the online casino industry, and wherever he ends up, he'll definitely be valued. Evolution has grown quite a bit since he first took the post in 2010, and his work has helped them along in a tremendous way. His replacement Jacob Kaplan will be a great fit to continue the type of work in the CFO position, and we'll be interested to see how he does as he makes the transition just before the holidays and really gets behind things in the beginning of 2017.
