As reported in eGaming Review, Head of Trading Sam Foulkes has quit Coral. He left earlier this month having tendered his resignation in December, and is now seeing out a period of gardening leave.
News of Foulkes’ departure comes just five months after he had been promoted to the head of trading role, which saw him relocate from Coral’s Stratford headquarters to the operator’s Gibraltar offices.
The move was part of a wider restructuring of the sportsbook trading division, which also saw Danny Greer become head of in-play and the trading division split to form separate in-play and pre-match pricing teams.
Foulkes joined Coral in 2012 after having previously spent eight years at rival William Hill, where he had held various roles including senior trader and head of in-play football. Speaking to eGaming Review, he said it was the right time to move on:
“I am immensely proud of my achievements at Coral and after four years, I felt it was the right time for a new challenge. I’ve had a number of exciting work offers already and I’m expecting to take up a new role within the next few months.”
A spokesperson for the operator confirmed: “Sam recently left Coral and we wish him the very best for the future. No decision been made on how to replace him but we have a strong team so we are not in any hurry to decide.”
