There are several impressive resumes on Kahoot's new board of directors, which was finalized this week.

Here is the new board in Kahoot.

Over the past year, Shifter has written several stories about Kahoot's acquisition and public offering, which officially completed in January 2024.

Yesterday, the company announced new board members. And from a quick glance at their resumes, it doesn't seem like they're any small fish given a place around the table. The new chairman, Gavin Patterson, was, among other things, a former CEO of British telecoms company BT Group.

Of the eleven board members, only four remain from the old board. This applies to Alexander Remmen and Charlotte Christiansen, both employee representatives, Andreas Hansson, who was Chairman of the Board of Directors until the company was acquired, and Chris Culkin.
