Two major departures have happened recently with Paul Leggett Vice President of online gaming at Amaya leaving after an internal email was leaked to the media.
David Baazov, CEO of Amaya sent an internal email confirming Leggett’s departure by saying. “Paul is a consummate professional and has done an incredible job at Amaya,” he said. “He has led the integration of the online businesses, developed our strategies for technology and product, signed key deals and has put our online business on the path forward to greater things. He will be sorely missed.”
It is understood the departure is voluntary and could be connected to Leggetts previous work within online gambling post the UIGEA, however this is not confirmed, but as this was announced Amaya were granted a license to supply online gambling in New Jersey.
Another departure in the online gambling world is that of Mathias Dahms the CEO of Mybet, Dahms will step down from his role at the end of the year. He has been with the company for 15 years and was a co-founder of Mybet and has held the role of CEO since 2010. No reason for the departure has been made except that Mr Dahms will be seeking new challenges.
