Merger of two complementary businesses and aligning all aspects of both businesses
“Integration challenges were solved efficiently due to (i) buy in from top management, (ii) largely untouched complementary areas and (iii) swift implementation project in overlapping areas. Perhaps the biggest surprise was some cultural clashes amongst people from same background whereas people from different background had a more smooth integration.”
— Per-Ivan Selinder, CEO Betway
Betway and Gnuf had complementary skill sets, products and markets and was therefor a good match.
