Betclic co-founder Eric Moncada has left the firm only months after former partner in crime Nicholas Beraud departed. According to eGR, CTO Pierrick Petain joins Moncada out of the exit door and it follows a number of other notable departures in recent weeks. The departures follow the firm’s decision to appoint new CEO Ignacio Martos, who has embarked on an unprecedented cost-cutting exercise. There are also reports the gaming industry firm will face court action in Portugal, with a case similar to the one taken out against bwin.party.
