The Company Has Seen Tremendous Growth
Soft2Bet Group’s ex-CEO acknowledged that the announcement brings him mixed feelings, considering that he leaves a dedicated team of professionals some of which he considers friends. However, Chaikin pointed out that he is proud of the achievements the company completed while he was in charge.
Such achievements included significant growth. Since 2018, when Chaikin first joined Soft2Bet, the company grew from a team with less than 100 people, to more than 1,000 employees within three different locations in Europe. What’s more, the company has secured several licenses to operate in Europe while in Latin America and Sweden, it is in the process of obtaining licenses for its B2B and B2C operations. For the time Chaikin spearheaded the company, it has also reported double-digit growth every quarter. According to Chaikin, Soft2Bet is “one of the rising stars on the online gambling horizon.” Last but not least, he pointed out that as a shareholder, he is confident of the future success of the company.
Besides Chakin’s resignation, only recently Soft2Bet announced another senior leadership change. On Monday the company revealed that Neven Nikov is no longer holding the position of CEO of the Group. The company wished him good luck and outlined that until a successor is selected, Poliavich will be serving as interim CEO.
