Pernille Mehl is to step down as CEO of Danske Spil’s lottery division, Danske Lotteri Spil (DLO), after six years in the role. She will leave DLO by November 1 to become chief executive at a technology company.

Mehl said: “I have enjoyed every single day in Danske Spil, so it is with sadness that I have to say goodbye. I feel proud and lucky to have been surrounded by such competent colleagues who together have helped to create a strong business, and I, therefore, feel completely confident about having to play the ball on.

“However, Danske Spil will not completely escape me. The Lotto app and my PLUS subscription will always be an important part of me.”

Group CEO Nikolas Lyhne-Knudsen said: “Pernille, together with her own team and in collaboration across Danske Spil, has delivered an incredibly good effort and impressive results in DLO, which means that today we have very strong and competitive brands within our number game. Solid and modern brands that deliver a high turnover. In addition, Pernille has helped to strengthen our unique culture in Danske Spil.”

After starting out as an affiliate in 2009 and developing some recognized review portals, I have moved deeper into journalism and media. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.
