Entain announced that Robert Hoskin will be stepping down as Chief Governance Officer after 18 years in the company.
Hoskin’s departure from Entain will be effective on 31 August.
Hoskin, who is one of the most experienced members in the company, joined in August 2005 as director group legal, regulatory, and secretariat. He was promoted to chief governance officer by December 2020.
Entain announced that it has decided to restructure some responsibilities, notably regulatory affairs, so as to focus solely on regulated markets or markets that are regulated. Simon Zinger will take over Hoskin’s other responsibilities, as he is currently Entain’s general counsel.
Hoskin stated that Entain had undergone a transformation of unprecedented proportions in the past few years. The company now boasts a strong reputation as a responsible, best-in class operator, with excellent governance and a commitment to sustainability.
“I feel truly honoured that I was able to be a part of this extraordinary journey. I wish everyone at Entain the very best for the future.”
Jette Nygaard Andersen, chief executive of Entain, added: “Robert has been exceptionally supportive and welcoming to me since I joined Entain’s board as a nonexecutive member in 2019. I was delighted when Robert agreed to continue in his position after I became CEO. I have benefited greatly from his wisdom.
“He played a key role in making Entain what it is today. I want to thank him personally for all that he’s done and for the group as a whole.”
