Anitra Steen, the former head of Systembolaget, the Swedish state alcohol monopoly, will chair the state owned gaming company Svenska Spel, according to the daily Svenska Dagbladet (SvD).

The current chairman of the board, Margareta Winberg, has been asked to leave after only three years on the post. "The government wants its chairperson to have other profile," Winberg tells SvD.

Even though she had not expected to leave already now, Winberg says she has carried out what the Government wanted from her - to turn Svenska Spel into a more responsible company. "I have worked a lot with that and pushed the company in that direction. Now the Government wants its chairperson to have a slightly different focus, putting more energy into the business side of it all. And that is a focus Anitra represents more than me," Winberg told SvD.

Anitra Steen, who is married to the former prime minister Göran Persson, was the CEO of Systembolaget for ten years.
