Zeno Osskó has stepped down from his role as chief executive of mybet.
In a statement, mybet said Osskó will leave the company to “turn towards new professional and personal aims”.
Markus Peuler, who currently serves as chief financial officer, will now take on the role of chief executive on the interim.
The firm said the departure will have no impact on the planned implementation of its new IT platform, which is scheduled to launch between the end of July and the beginning of August.
“As COO and later on as CEO I was able to initiate and implement necessary change processes within the company,” Osskó said.
“The last component will be the new high performance platform, which is ready for implementation on short notice and which I will still support completely.
“I am still convinced that the platform will raise the product offering of mybet to a new level. I terminate my long-time work at mybet solely by the desire to make use of a very special possibility for a personal and professional change that arose during a short space of time.”
Volker Heeg, supervisory board chairman of mybet, added: “The Supervisory Board has always very much appreciated the work of Mr Osskó as head of operations and as member of the executive board of the company due to his professional expertise and leadership abilities – thus, we do regret his decision.
“But with Markus Peuler as sole executive officer and a strong second management level, mybet is well prepared for the tasks to come.
“The Supervisory Board is going to decide about the future structure of the executive Board functions also depending on the start of the new IT platform.”
