From GVC to Entain

Entain’s distinctive purple hue now symbolizes not only a trusted brand among consumers but also a desirable partner for businesses. With a presence in over 30 territories and a workforce of 30,000 employees, Entain has solidified its standing in the gaming industry.
Reflecting on the company’s journey, Nygaard-Andersen emphasized the need for innovation in the gaming sector. “What has worked in the past will not always work in the present,” she stated, underscoring the importance of strategic thinking and passionate innovators committed to customer-centric practices.
In contemplating her future endeavors, Nygaard-Andersen expressed gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with talented individuals at Entain. As she plans to take a break over the holiday period, her focus remains on decompressing before embarking on the next executive chapter.
