Kambi appoints Wachtmeister as CCO to lead team of new SVPs
Kambi has appointed Cecilia Wachtmeister to the role of chief commercial officer, which will see her lead a team of newly promoted senior vice presidents.
Wachtmeister previously held the role of executive vice president at Kambi, which she took up in 2019 after joining the company’s executive management team.
Before her time at Kambi, Wachtmeister spent 25 years at telecommunications company Ericsson AB, where she held a number of senior management positions across sales, business development and strategy.
In her new role, Wachtmeister will lead three Kambi senior vice presidents that have recently been promoted – Sarah Robertson, Jamie McKittrick and Veena Dhesi.
Robertson has been named as senior vice president of sales. She has over 10 years worth of experience in the industry. McKittrick is senior vice president of commercial operations, having moved from the role of group head of commercial at Entain in 2021.
Dhesi moved from research and advisory company Gartner to the role of senior vice president of partner success. At Gartner she most recently held the role of director of sales growth programs.
“With a market-leading product and partner-first focus, it’s no surprise Kambi has enjoyed great success in recent years,” said Wachtmeister. “Even though we are on a steep growth trajectory, we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible which is why I’m looking forward to working with my talented commercial team to ensure Kambi can capitalise on the many exciting opportunities that lay ahead.”
“It has already been a busy start to the year with the signings of MaximBet and NorthStar Gaming and I am confident we have the right team and product in place to build on this success in 2022 and beyond.”
