Real Luck Group Ltd., the parent company of esports betting platform Luckbox, has promoted Thomas Rosander to the role of CEO following Quentin Martin’s decision to step down.
Rosander was recently hired by Luckbox in February this year to become the platform’s Chief Customer Officer. Prior to joining the company, he was Dunder Casino’s CEO.
Rosander’s previous experience also includes tenures at Mr Green Online Casino and Electronic Arts (EA).
Drew Green, Real Luck Group Chairman, commented on the announcement: “Thomas’ past industry success and unique operational skill sets made him the optimal choice to become our CEO as we enter our next phase, execute the concise plan Thomas established as CCO of Luckbox and build a company culture that’s focused on profitable growth.”
Alongside being appointed CEO, Rosander has also been appointed to Real Luck Group Ltd.’s Board of Directors. Rosander’s promotion was announced at the same time Martin revealed that he had voluntarily stepped down from his role as CEO and company Director.
Via a LinkedIn post, Martin stated: “Today I step down as Luckbox – Real Luck Group CEO. It has been an absolute privilege and one of the proudest achievements of my life to have taken the organisation from a small, cash-strapped esports betting start-up to a cashed-up global public company.”
During his tenure as CEO, which began in January 2020, Martin oversaw Luckbox’s growth and development. This included debuting on Toronto’s TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) in December 2020, and raising $17.8m in a private placement round earlier this year.
Martin’s next plans following his departure have yet to be revealed.
Rosander concluded: “I am thrilled to be taking over as CEO and look forward to leading the company as we scale the business. We have a talented and experienced team here at Luckbox, and I am confident that we can build on the excellent work done so far under Quentin’s leadership to make Luckbox a world-leading esports betting destination.”
Esports Insider says: Martin was a significant figure for Luckbox and has overseen the company’s development ever since his arrival in 2018. Rosander does have a hard task ahead of him to keep this momentum going, however, he has CEO experience in the past and has clearly impressed the firm during his short time at Real Luck Group.
