Swiss casino operator Stadtcasino Baden Group has appointed new experienced executives to manage its two igaming brands, Casino777 and Jackpots.ch.
Brian Christner has been named as chief of online gaming for Grand Casino Baden. He is an IT specialist and previously spent more than a decade in the industry as a systems engineer and support manager for International Game Technology (IGT) between 2000 and 2011. Since then he has predominantly worked in cloud computing, most recently running his own consultancy to help companies deploy cloud-based solutions across their businesses.
Casino Davos, the property jointly owned by Stadtcasino Baden Group and Belgium’s Ardent Group, has appointed Robert Kocher to oversee its Casino777 igaming site. Kocher is an igaming industry veteran, having worked in the sector since 1998.
Christner and Kocher join a management team that has undergone significant restructuring in the past year. This has seen Christian Stegemann appointed chief financial officer and Dr Alexandra Körner brought in to oversee legal and compliance from May and June 2020 respectively. Stadtcasino Baden Group then brought in Michael Böni as its new chief executive in November last year, replacing long-serving incumbent Detlef Brose.
“I am convinced that with [this] new crew I have found a coherent management team to take our ‘House of Entertainment’ into the future respectively,” Böni commented following Christner and Kocher’s appointments.
