Will a female CEO soon lead Entain?

Following Shay Segev's resignation as CEO of Entain (formerly GVC Holdings), it is currently reported that the gaming group is in talks with the Danish Jette Nygaard-Andersen. This could mean that the management of Entain will be taken over by a female CEO for the first time.

Shay Segev, who was Entain CEO for only a few months when he submitted his resignation, will move to the executive level of DAZN, a sports streaming platform, after the notice period has expired. Until then, a successor is being sought and as it currently stands, Jette Nygaard-Andersen is a very promising candidate who is already director of Entain. Should she actually take over Segev’s position, this would be a historic moment for Entain, as no woman has yet taken over the management of the group.

The 51-year-old business woman has had an impressive career. After earning a Masters degree in Business, Finance & Economics from the University of Copenhagen, she completed another degree in Business Management from Columbia University in New York.

Nygaard-Andersen then started her career in various media companies, including Engage Sports Media and most recently spent 15 years in a management position at the Swedish media group Modern Times Group, which a few years ago took over Turtle Entertainment, one of the largest esports companies . Nygaard-Andersen also held a board position at Turtle Entertainment.

The Dane currently works for Coloplast, a Danish medical device company.
