Recent changes at Kambi and Inspired

Kambi and Inspired are collaborating following organizational shakeups at both companies.

In November 2023, former chairman Lars Stugemo relinquished his role as Kambi Chairman after a decade-long run as a leader of the company’s board of directors. Two months later, CEO Kristian Nylén announced his desire to resign from his position this year. Nylén, who co-founded Kambi in 2010, will step down as CEO once a permanent replacement has been hired by Kambi.

Inspired saw its CFO, Stewart Baker, resign from his position in January following delays in the company’s third-quarter results. Baker will assist Inspired in selecting his replacement.

Inspired has still yet to release the company’s earnings results for Q3 2023. The company is currently listed on the NASDAQ exchange and is facing a delisting. Earlier this week, Inspired announced that it plans to file a Form 10-Q for Q3 with the NASDAQ no later than Feb. 28.
