Hoskin to exit chief governance role at Entain
Hoskin will leave Entain’s board on 30 June before officially departing his role on 31 August.
Among the longest-serving members at the company, Hoskin joined the group in August 2005, serving as group director of legal, regulatory and secretariat, before being promoted to chief governance officer in December 2020.
Entain said that it had taken the decision to restructure certain responsibilities, in particular regulatory affairs, in line with its focus exclusively on regulated or regulating markets. With Hoskin stepping down, his other responsibilities will be taken on by Simon Zinger, currently Entain’s general counsel.
“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,” Hoskin said.
“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.”
Entain chief executive Jette Nygaard-Andersen added: “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.”
