Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital reality solutions, combining sensors, software and autonomous technologies, today announced that Paolo Guglielmini will succeed Ola Rollén as President and CEO of Hexagon AB, effective 31 December 2022.

Gun Nilsson has decided to step down as CEO for Hexagon’s principal shareholder MSAB on 1 October and consequently leave her position as Chairman of Hexagon AB at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2023. MSAB, in consultation with Hexagon’s nomination committee, has the intention to propose Ola Rollén as new Chairman of the Board at the AGM 2023.

Paolo Guglielmini, currently Hexagon’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) and President of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) division, has served in key roles since joining Hexagon in 2010, from strategy and business development to M&A and general management. He has been instrumental in expanding MI’s focus towards software-centric quality data solutions, and with his team driving the business towards all-time-high performance in 2021. Prior to joining Hexagon, Guglielmini held positions at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland, and Accenture. He holds a Master of Science in Engineering and Master of Business Administration from IMD.

“I’m happy that we have found an internal solution for my succession which will bring long term stability and continuity but at the same time needed rejuvenation as we prepare this amazing company for the next big leap strategically,” says Hexagon’s President and CEO, Ola Rollén. “I have preoccupied myself with the well-being of Hexagon 24/7 for the last 22 years and it’s a true privilege to be able to continue to follow the company’s successful development as Chairman.”

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and shareholders, I want to thank Ola for his incredible achievements throughout the years. Since joining Hexagon in 2000, he has grown the company from 150 MEUR market cap to a 30bn EUR multinational leader in digital solutions. He has brought tremendous value to both shareholders, industry, and society. I’m confident that Paolo will continue this journey, taking the company to the next level,” says Hexagon’s Chairman of the board, Gun Nilsson. “It’s been an honor to follow this great company for more than 14 years as part of the Board of Directors, and the past 5 years as Chairman.”

“I’m honoured by the opportunity to build upon the legacy that Ola and our team have created over the past two decades, and excited to lead Hexagon into the future. We are very well positioned to capitalise on the vast opportunities ahead, combining software, sensors and autonomous technologies to create sustainable value for our stakeholders,” says Hexagon’s COO and President of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, Paolo Guglielmini.

At the same time the following organisational changes will be made:

Josh (Joshua) Weiss, currently COO of Hexagon Geosystems, will succeed Guglielmini as President for Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, effective 1 July 2022. Weiss has served in multiple leadership roles since joining Hexagon in 2015 – from his most recent role to the President of Geosystems’ mining and heavy construction businesses. Weiss will report to Hexagon’s President and CEO and be a part of the Executive Management Team.

Michael Ritter, currently President of Hexagon Autonomy & Positioning, will assume a new senior role overseeing Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning, Mining and Agriculture divisions, effective immediately. In this role, Ritter will be responsible for leading the strategy of the businesses, to accelerate synergies and strengthening the solutions portfolio for Hexagon’s customers. Ritter will continue reporting to Hexagon’s President and CEO and be a part of the Executive Management Team.

Maria Luthström, currently Head of Sustainability and Investor Relations for Hexagon, will succeed Ritter as President of Hexagon Autonomy & Positioning, effective 1 October 2022. Luthström joined Hexagon in 2015 and has been instrumental in expanding the company’s strategy and environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda, strengthening Hexagon’s culture and increasing shareholder value.

Popular software provider’s innovative new cluster pays slot helps players score big with free spins, cascading wins and an arsenal of sweet candy booster bonuses

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Famed far and wide for their inventive themes and innovative approach to game development, sought-after software provider, Swintt, has once again pushed the boundaries of what can be expected from a humble video slot with the launch of their wildly ambitious title, Candy Gold.

The first game in the Swintt Select line-up to feature cluster pays, Candy Gold does away with conventional pay lines entirely and asks players to instead collect clusters of five or more matching sweet symbols. Played out across a gigantic 7×7 game board, this creates plenty of winning potential from the first spin, but when you also throw in cascading symbols, it’s a whole new level of rewarding.
Essentially, the instant a winning cluster is paid, it will disappear from the gameboard as new symbols drop down from above to fill its place. Should these symbols create further clusters, their winnings will also be added to the current pay out and the process will continue until no new wins are present.

Obviously this means the base game wins can really stack up, but if players want a helping hand in their quest to crush even more sweet treats, they’ll also be able to use one of six Candy Boosters. These special power-ups can be awarded at random whenever enough spins have been made to fill the Candy Booster metre, or purchased directly for an extra wager by using the “Buy Booster” button.
Available options include Candy Gold, Super Candy Gold and Mega Candy Gold power-ups, which add random clusters of one, four or nine wilds to the game board respectively, and a line-up of bombs and rockets that transform existing symbols into higher paying ones. The Candy Bomb turns a nine-symbol cluster into one random high-paying symbol, the Ultra Bomb does the same but for an entire column instead, while the Candy Rocket transforms a column and a row into one symbol in a cross formation.

In addition to these bonbon-busting boosters, players will also need to look out for Candy Gold’s regular wild symbols, which can appear during any base game spin. When one of these symbols arrives, not only will it substitute for any regular candy symbol to create winning clusters, but it will also lock in place for the duration of the round. Should three wilds appear, free spins will be activated.
When the free spins are triggered, players will notice that a new multiplier metre will now be visible. Starting at 2x, the multiplier value will increase after every successive cascading win up to a maximum of 8x and will only reset when no new clusters are created. By successfully cranking this metre up to the max, players can potentially feed their sweet tooth with jaw-dropping wins of up 7,000x the bet.

David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “Here at Swintt, we’re always looking for new ways for our slots to capture players’ imagination – and in our exciting new Candy Gold release, we’ve really hit the sweet spot where innovation meets playability.

“The first game in the Select line-up to utilise a cluster pays mechanic and cascading wins, Candy Gold already had the potential to create huge combination pay outs during each new round. However, not content to stop there, we added a bumper line-up of bonbon-busting boosters as well as free spins with progressive multipliers to really put the cherry on top of one of our tastiest slot treats to date.”

UEFA CELEBRATES WOMEN’S EURO 2022 WITH METAVERSE ESPORTS EVENT

Reading Time: 2 minutes

UEFA, the governing body of football in Europe, announces a special esports event in the metaverse aimed at inspiring more girls and boys to play football ahead of UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.

The UEFA edition of the Metaverse Gaming League (MGL) event on Friday 24th June will see dozens of players compete against each other in the Road to UEFA Women’s EURO Roblox game. MGL is the first live esports league for the metaverse, streamed live on Twitch and YouTube each week. Focusing on fun, competitive gaming experiences, it rewards skill, flair, and teamwork rather than a winner-takes-all approach.

During the event, which is set to feature popular YouTuber Ruby Games, players will don the kits of their favourite competing teams and race against the clock to win a share of a massive prize pool of 500,000 Robux, worth $5,000. They must score as many goals and collect as many golden tournament tickets as possible before taking on the final challenge of a brand new ‘Stadium’ obstacle course.

The esports event and Roblox game are part of UEFA’s groundbreaking campaign to appeal directly and authentically to young girls and boys on platforms they consume daily. Roblox has over 50 million daily active users – of which over 50% are children under-12 and at least 44% are female. The game is complemented by a skills challenge and educational video series on YouTube which will also be shared with schools across Europe through UEFA’s Football in Schools programme.

Patrick Mead, CTO at Metaverse Gaming League, added:

“In their campaign to inspire children’s love of football ahead of the Women’s Euro next month, UEFA is meeting children in the metaverse, where they spend considerable amounts of time socialising, learning and playing. Their wonderful Roblox game is a brilliant amphitheatre for some friendly MGL competition and we’re excited to put on a great, inclusive esports show before the tournament starts in earnest.”

UEFA’s Metaverse Gaming League event will take place at 6pm BST on Friday 24th June 2022. To play during the live event, players should register for MGL for free.
