Catena Media names Messner as new financial chief
Published 10th March 2020
Messner joins Catena having most recently served as CFO of Swedish media giant Modern Times Group's esports-focused subsidiary MTGx. Prior to this, he also spent time in senior roles with poker network Ongame and and its one-time parent company, bwin Interactive Entertainment.
Upon becoming CFO at Catena next month, Messner will replace Erik Edeen, who had been serving as interim group CFO. During his time in the role, Edeen is credited with rebuilding and transforming Catena’s entire financial structure.
After stepping down from the position, Edeen will continue to support Catena in strategic projects for the foreseeable future.
“With a well-functioning financial infrastructure in place, due to Erik’s contributions, our playing field is now ready to welcome Peter as CFO,” Catena chief executive Per Hellberg said.
