Chief Responsibility Officer becomes Paf´s deputy CEO

Daniela Johansson has been appointed Deputy CEO of the Åland gambling company Paf.

Johansson has been working at Paf for 15 years and has had a variety of roles within the organization over the years. Since 2013, she has been responsible for Paf's work with responsible gaming and has been part of the company's management team since 2014.

Paf's CEO Christer Fahlstedt says Daniela Johansson has many good qualities.

- She is a natural leader and a good representative of Paf both internally and externally.
- During Daniela's time as CRO Paf has developed into becoming a forerunner in the field.

Paf inspires competitors to raise their level of responsibility and has won several awards in the area in recent years.

 - Paf's ambitions in the field of responsibility will not diminish, and Daniela therefore has a very important role in Paf's future development and strategy, says Christer Fahlstedt.

Daniela Johansson sees the appointment as a confirmation of the importance of caring about the customers.

 - And of course, I am personally honored by the appointment. I'm glad that the job I, and the whole department, do is important to Paf.
