Copenhagen-based iGaming solutions provider Shape Games has appointed former Danske Spil executive Ulrik Borgen as director of account management.
Borgen brings nearly 10 years of iGaming and regulatory experience to the Shape Games leadership team, as the provider seeks to expand into the United States and other regulated markets.
Previously, he served as Director of the Project Management Office (PMO) at Danske Spil and led the transition of the Danish public operator as the market opened up to private competition in 2012. Prior to that, he worked for a decade at Nokia, where he led mobile product development.
“Ulrik is a mobile product innovator who knows how to beat the competition by delivering what consumers want, before they even know they want it,” said Christian Risom, co-founder and CEO of Shape Games. “Its expertise as a public sector operator and in advanced product development in complex regulatory environments complements our extensive commercial gaming expertise. “
Commenting on his appointment, Borgen said, “Shape Games has a strong track record in successfully combining an innovative, transparent and customer-centric user experience with attention to compliance to give users peace of mind and security. .
“I am happy to be a part of the next exciting phase of the company’s growth and to bring my knowledge to help companies navigate regulatory requirements to maximize their growth and user experiences. “
