Patrick Kortman Steps in as Interim CFO at Kindred Group
Kindred Group has announced the appointment of Patrick Kortman as its Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective from June 21, 2023. Kortman succeeds Johan Wilsby, who tendered his resignation earlier this year. Wilsby will provide his support to Kortman during this transition phase.
Kortman, currently serving as Kindred’s Director of Corporate Development and Investor Relations, joined the company in 2018. Throughout his tenure, Kortman has worked closely with Kindred’s Board, Executive Team, and Financial Department, bringing extensive financial market experience to his new role as Interim CFO. Prior to joining Kindred, Kortman held senior positions at Nordea and Ratos, further augmenting his financial acumen.
While the transition is underway, Wilsby will continue to lend his expertise to the Executive Team until his departure from the company.
Kindred Group has also announced two additional interim appointments to its Executive Team. Usha Ganesan is set to assume the role of Interim Chief Finance Operations Officer, while Neil Banbury will take on the responsibilities of Interim Chief Commercial & Marketing Officer. These appointments will retain their interim status until the conclusion of the strategic review.
The recent shifts in the management structure highlight Kindred Group’s commitment to ensuring smooth business continuity and reaffirm its standing in the iGaming industry.
“I am very pleased that Patrick has agreed to take on the role as Interim CFO at Kindred. Patrick knows Kindred very well and has a vast experience from the financial sector, and he will continue to bring great value to Kindred’s financial operations, to the wider Executive Team, and to the Board as we continue to focus on the strategic review”, says Nils Andén, Interim CEO at Kindred Group.
“I am delighted that we can maintain momentum and consistency across the company during this period thanks to our excellent senior leaders and strong employee base”, continues Nils Andén.
