Codeta Nabs Ex-Tain CEO has recruited online gaming veteran Patrik Svensson to head up technology for the Sweden-based innovator in live table gaming on the internet. The new CTO will be key to Codeta's plans to expand globally, the company says.

Stockholm-based, a leader in live internet table gambling, has hired former Tain CEO Patrik Svensson as chief technology officer.

In the newly created position Svensson will be responsible for taking Codeta’s desktop and mobile platforms to the next level, the company said, using tools such as Google Machine Learning and the Facebook front-end platform, React.js to enhance the live dealer playing experience and advance the company’s expansion in Europe and internationally.

An industry veteran with almost 15 years’ experience in online gambling and related technologies, Svensson founded the popular Scandinavian bingo site Bertil Bingo and held the top job at platform and content provider Tain since 2003.

“We have fiercely ambitious plans for our brand and proposition, but remain focused on delivering a world-class UX to our customers both old and new. Patrik will be key to achieving this, as well as leading us into new markets and regions,” said Codeta founder and CEO Edward Ihre.
