Gothenburg-based gaming company Thunderful Group AB today announces the appointment of Lennart Sparud as new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Among other merits, Lennart Sparud has served for many years as CFO at publicly listed Hexatronic Group. Thunderful’s current CFO Anders Maiqvist stays on in the role until the handover is complete.

Thunderful Group AB recently presented a strong leadership team for the Games segment. The company today announces that Lennart Sparud will join as new CFO when his current employment as CFO at Profura AB expires, which will happen October 1 this year at the latest.

”Lennart joins us with long and solid experience from running listed growth companies,” says Thunderful Group CEO Brjánn Sigurgeirsson. ”Thunderful Group has grown rapidly in recent years, and we have a very exciting journey ahead of us. In the past year we’ve consistently strengthened the organisation in key areas, and our new CFO is a prime example of how we are building for the future.”

In addition to building well-functioning financial organizations, Lennart has in previous roles ensured compliance in several areas, such as stock exchange rules, accounting, and reporting to the financial market. He has been involved in global acquisitions, negotiations and financing issues, and has successfully established structures in entrepreneurial companies during strong growth in international environments.

"It is with great confidence that I look forward to the interesting and exciting role as CFO of Thunderful Group, whose growth journey has just begun," says Lennart Sparud. "With my background and experience of international listed growth companies, I am convinced that I will be a strong addition to the management team at Thunderful Group."
