Robert Hoskin will leave the Entain Board on 30 June, remaining in his role within the company until 31 August 2023.
Hoskin has been with Entain since 2005, starting out as Company Secretary and Group Director of Legal, Regulatory and Secretariat, before being promoted to his current role in October 2020 and then joining the Board in 2021.
Simon Zinger, who is currently Entain’s General Counsel, will be taking on Hoskin's responsibilities.
Jette Nygaard-Andersen, Entain CEO, said of the appointment: “Robert was exceptionally supportive, welcoming and helpful to me when I joined the Board of Entain as a non-executive director in 2019.
"I was therefore delighted that he agreed to remain in his role after my appointment as CEO, and I have benefitted hugely from his wisdom and counsel.
"He has played an instrumental role in making Entain the success story that it is today, and I would like to express my sincere thanks to him for everything that he has done for me personally and the Group more widely.”
Hoskin himself commented: “Entain has been through a period of extraordinary transformation in recent times, and now has strong credentials as a best-in-class, responsible operator with outstanding governance and a clear commitment to sustainability in all its forms.
"I am truly honoured to have had the opportunity of playing a part in that extraordinary journey, and wish everyone at Entain all the best for the future.”
