Relax Gaming, a leading iGaming supplier and aggregator, has designated Martin Stålros as its new chief executive officer. In this position, Stålros will replace the outgoing Simon Hammon who has served as CEO since 2022. The latter will remain on board until October to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

Stålros is no stranger to Relax Gaming, having spent almost 10 years with the company. He has served as chief operating officer since January 2015 and is well-familiar with the company’s business.

Stålros’ track record also includes positions at Unibet and Ladbrokes. According to Relax Gaming, his contributions to the industry span from business development to operational leadership.

The new CEO commented on his appointment, saying that he is “tremendously excited” about the opportunity to step up as CEO. As someone who has seen Relax’s team grow from 30 to 350 people, Stålros is motivated to drive further growth.

Stålros added that the example of chair Patrik Österåker and ex-CEO Simon Hammon has provided him with great insight.

My aim is to combine their strengths with my own to drive Relax Gaming into further growth as we continue to expand to new markets and embrace opportunities, while always maintaining outstanding tech, exceptional service, strong relationships, and our core values.
