Better Collective confirms addition of former NetEnt CEO Hillman to board

Shareholders in affiliate business Better Collective have approved the appointment of former NetEnt chief executive Therese Hillman as a new board member.


Better Collective proposed adding Hillman as a member of its board of directors last month, and shareholders voted in favour of the motion at its annual general meeting earlier today (26 April).

Ranked as one of the industry’s most influential women by iGB in 2019, Hillman stepped down as CEO of slots specialist NetEnt in March after its acquisition by Evolution.

Hillman joined NetEnt in January 2017 as chief financial officer, going on to become interim CEO in April 2018 and taking on the role on a full-time basis in the following month.

Aside from Hillman’s appointment, Better Collective shareholders approved the re-election of Jens Bager as chairman of the board of directors at the AGM.

In addition, Klaus Holse, Leif Nørgaard, Petra Von Rohr and Todd Dunlap were approved for reappointment as members of the business’s board.

Better Collective last month said merger and acquisition activity during its 2020 financial year helped drive year-on-year growth in revenue and profit.

Revenue for the 12 months to 31 December 2020 was up 35.3% year-on-year to €91.2m (£79.4m/$110.2m), while profit increased by 57.6% to €21.9m.
