“Paul is a consummate professional and has done an incredible job at Amaya. He has led the integration of the online businesses, developed our strategies for technology and product, signed key deals and has put our online business on the path forward to greater things. He will be sorely missed.”
Future plans for Leggett are were not made public at this time.
