It's official – the world's leading online poker site, PokerStars, and its Chief Executive Officer Gabriel “Gabi” Campos Woslovsky have parted ways. On Monday, January 16th PokerStars officials issued a statement confirming the information about Campos leaving the office.
Here's the official statement issued by PokerStars to PokerNews.com:
“PokerStars announced today that Gabi Campos has decided to step down from his position as Chief Executive Officer, effective Feb. 1, 2012, to pursue other opportunities. The company thanks Gabi for his hard work and commitment and wishes him the best in all his future endeavors. A search for Gabi’s replacement is under way.”
The rumor of Campos leaving PokerStars spread on Friday at the EPT PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and soon reached the Isle of Man and beyond. On Monday the site verified the information wishing Campos “the best in all his future endeavors.”
Campos took the position of PokerStars CEO less than two years ago, in July 2010, although he actually started running the place just four months later. He began his career in the online gaming business in 2007 when he was appointed Senior VP Head of Offering at 888. Two years later Campos became the managing director of Dragonfish, 888's B2B division specializing in online gaming services including gaming technologies, marketing, operations and ePayments.
