Before his impactful tenure at LeoVegas, Lindahl’s career encompassed significant roles outside the gaming industry, including Head of International Development at Gruppo DigiTouch and CEO at Optimized Group S.r.l., further underscoring his extensive background in marketing and international business development.

Under Lindahl’s marketing leadership, LeoVegas has not only cemented its position as a leading player in the online gaming industry but has also engaged in various charitable and responsible gaming initiatives.
