Andreas Kötter confirmed as WestLotto-Managing Director for another five years

The committees of Germany's largest lottery operator WestLotto (Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co OHG) have unanimously extended the contract with Andreas Kötter as spokesman for the management board for a further five years until 2028.

“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,” explains the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Michael Stölting, who is also a member of the NRW.BANK Board of Management.

Andreas Kötter joined WestLotto management in 2013 and has been managing the company together with Christiane Jansen as second managing director since 2016. He has an excellent national and international network and outstanding knowledge of the gaming market.

As the long-standing chairman of the Eurojackpot cooperation, he is leading the world's most successful lottery launch in the past ten years. In October, after several years as an executive member, Kötter was elected 1st Vice President of the World Lottery Association (WLA). This underscores WestLotto's leading role among providers dedicated to the fight against illegal cross-border gambling.

This central basic understanding of one's own actions will continue to ensure responsible and safe offers for the state lottery offer in North Rhine-Westphalia. In any case, the state lottery offers stand for stability in the industry. "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," says Andreas Kötter.
