r. Osskó joined the gambling company back in 2004 and has held a number of senior positions in various fields over the past twelve years. Prior to taking his current post as the operator’s CEO, he had been in charge of mybet’s Business Development and Retail divisions. Later on, he had served as Head of Gaming and Chief Operating Officer. The German gambling operator said in a statement that Mr. Osskó has taken an important role in its shaping during his more than a decade long career with it.
As reported in numerous previous occasions, mybet is currently in the process of implementing its new IT platform. The said implementation is expected to be completed towards the end of the month or early in August. The product was first scheduled to be launched right before the UEFA Euro 2016 but certain detail work delayed its introduction.
The mybet Supervisory Board confirmed that Mr. Osskó’s departure would not have any negative effects on the platform’s implementation
Commenting on the latest announcement, Dr. Volker Heeg, mybet Supervisory Board Chairman, said that they have always appreciated Mr. Osskó’s work at the company and that they regret his decision. Yet, Dr. Heeg noted that mybet’s new CEO is well-prepared for the responsibilities that come with the post.
Of his departure, Mr. Osskó himself said that he is glad to have played an important role in the initiation and implementation of “change processes” within the gambling operator, with the new IT platform being the latest such change. The executive said that the new product will certainly bring mybet’s product offering to a new level.
Mr. Osskó is leaving the company to “make use of a […] possibility for a personal and professional change” that has arisen within a short space of time.
Last month, mybet announced that it would shut down its underperforming poker division. The company generated full-year revenue of €63 million in 2015. Poker contributed only €1 million to the figure reported for the whole calendar year.
