Details about the latest announcement emerged Wednesday and according to Catena Media, Messner is expected to leave from his current position within the next six months. In the meantime, the company confirmed it has already started the process of recruiting a new chief financial officer.

It is yet to be confirmed who will fill the position of Messner. Still, Catena confirmed that within six months, he will step down from his role to pursue a career that is outside of the casino and sports betting vertical.

The recent announcement comes amid another important move within the financial vertical completed by the company recently. Early in January, Catena joined forces with Carnegie Investment Bank AB. Per the terms of the deal, Carnegie was named a financial advisor for the company.

More recently, Catena posted its preliminary Q4 2022 results, reporting strong growth in North America. This came as no surprise considering that the region is a primary market for the company. Judging by the recent results, Catena’s revenue from the region increased to $16.4 million, up by 31%.
