Brinck had left his position as MD of Tipp24, earlier in March 2013, keeping some attachment with Tipp24 by serving as a senior consultant.
mybet supervisory board chairman Dr Volker Heeg commented on the appointment – “We are delighted that in Sven Ivo Brinck we have attracted to the company a management board member who is firmly established in the online and gaming scene, and can also offer sound management experience,”
However Fiala, who joined mybet days before Dahms announced his departure, has resigned from her role with immediate effect.
She was hired on a six-month contract to replace Stefan Hänel, who stepped down from his role in October, with a decision on a permanent replacement to be made at a later date. As a result, Brinck will take on all the management board duties until further notice.
A number of mybet’s long-serving employees have also left the business in 2013, including chairman Rainier Jacken, who co-founded the company with Dahms, and supervisory board members Rodolfo Carpintier Santana and Clemens Jakoptisch.
