Bojoko, the award-winning online casino affiliate site, has appointed Joonas Karhu as Chief Executive Officer amid a management reshuffle.
Joonas moves into the top job from the role of Chief Business Officer, with current CEO and Bojoko Co-founder, Toni Halonen, moving to the newly created role of Chief Product Officer.
The reshuffle will see Joonas take over the day to day running of the business and take on the task of ensuring Bojoko becomes the first globally recognised online gambling affiliate brand.
He will also be responsible for strategy development and execution, driving growth, overseeing resources and development and inspiring and motivating the wider team.
In his role as Chief Business Officer, Joonas has developed strong relationships with a wide range of industry stakeholders which he will continue to work with as CEO.
As Chief Product Officer, Toni will focus on taking the Bojoko product and user experience to levels the industry has never seen before and further establishing the company as a leader in the sector.
This comes after several major product upgrades, including the launch of two in-house developed game training apps that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
Joonas Karhu, Bojoko Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am honoured to have been named CEO of Bojoko, a business that I have been proud to be a part of since the very beginning.
“Over the past four years, I have watched it grow into an award-winning, market-leading online gambling affiliate organisation with a presence in markets around the world.
“I have always worked closely with Toni in my role as Chief Business Officer and believe I am in a strong position to take over the reins and continue to drive the business forward and on to greater success.
“I’d like to thank Toni and the other co-founders for putting their trust in me and promise to do all I can to achieve the goal of Bojoko becoming the first globally recognised affiliate brand.”
Toni Halonen, Chief Product Officer at Bojoko, said: “In Joonas we have the perfect candidate for the CEO role; he knows the business and also has unrivalled knowledge of, and experience in, the market.
“This reshuffle allows me to refocus on my passions – technology and SEO – and to ensure that Bojoko continues to push the boundaries in the areas of technology and user experience.
“This really is an exciting chapter for the business, and I look forward to seeing the incredible things we can achieve under Joonas’ leadership.”
