Andreas Kötter has agreed a five-year contract extension to remain as Spokesman for the management board of WestLotto.
Kötter joined the German lottery operator’s management team in 2013 and has been managing the company together with Christiane Jansen as second Managing Director since 2016.
His contract extension was unanimously approved by the committees of WestLotto, with this latest deal taking Kötter’s time at the company up until 2028.
Michael Stölting, Chairman of the Supervisory Board and member of the NRW.BANK Board of Management, commented: “It is very good news for WestLotto, NRW.BANK and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia that Andreas Kötter will be working for the company for another five years as Spokesman for the management. Andreas Kötter stands for successful corporate management.”
In October, after several years as an executive member, Kötter was elected as the first Vice President of the World Lottery Association (WLA) which, according to WestLotto, underscores its “leading role among providers dedicated to the fight against illegal cross-border gambling”.
Kotter added: “I would like to thank you for the trust in being able to continue to lead WestLotto on the path to the future. In the future, we as a company will continue to take on a very special responsibility for North Rhine-Westphalia and its citizens via the lottery principle.”
Meanwhile, WestLotto recently partnered with adesso to leverage the latter’s new software designed to recognise lottery slips from cloud-based and AI technologies on tablet devices.
