PokerStars' Seismic Shift In Management Team

The PokerStars management team has undergone a seismic shift over the past year, with CEO Gabi Campos now the third high ranking official to exit the world’s biggest poker site since Black Friday.
In May 2011, the European Poker Tour (EPT) tournament director Thomas Kremser was the first to depart PokerStars in order to “explore new ventures,” followed earlier this month by EPT creator and CEO John Duthie, who also announced his resignation to “take on new challenges,” Now Gabi Campos, has also parted ways with PokerStars having been CEO at the company since October 2010.
Campos had held senior executive positions at 888, and then its B2B arm, Dragonfish before joining PokerStars. After his arrival PokerStars founder, Isai Scheinberg continued as the Chief Technical Officer, although his son, Mark, was named the new Chairman of the company. Following yesterday’s announcement of Campos’ departure, an official statement read:
“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.”
Meanwhile, rumours have surfaced that  the Global Poker Tours Limited MD Jeffrey Haas, has also been caught up in the shake-up currently underway. The company is another PokerStars related business organizing live events, and Haas recently opened the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA), but his name appeared without any related title.
As the management overhaul continues at PokerStars, the site still maintains its position as a market leader, with six times as many cash game players as next biggest poker room PartyPoker. Back in 2010, PokerStars earnt roughly $1.4 billion and netted approximately $1.34 million each day.
