Tim De Borle ends decade-long leadership of Napoleon

Tim De Borle has announced his decision to step down as Chief Executive of Benelux gambling group Napoleon Sports & Casino.

Writing a post on LinkedIn, De Borle confirmed that he had ended his 10-year tenure as an executive of Belgium’s biggest gambling group.

He stated: “It’s been the adventure of a lifetime, and although I still see huge opportunity and ambition for further growth for Napoleon, the time has come for me to move on and embrace the next challenge in my professional life.  

 “Making this decision has been difficult and yet satisfying at the same time, as I can look back with enormous gratitude and pride on everything we’ve been able to achieve.”

De Borle joined the company in 2012 as an IT operations programmer and quickly rose through the group’s technology ranks to become Chief Operations Officer of Napoleon Online unit in 2016.

A key stakeholder in expanding the firm’s digital capabilities, De Borle was promoted to Online CEO in 2020, and subsequently took over group leadership the following year.

De Borle also confirmed the inbound appointment of Eamonn O’Loughlin, current Chief Operations Officer as Napoleon’s new CEO.

Signing-off leadership duties, De Borle thanked company investors the Michiels family, Waterland PE and Superbet Chairman Sacha Dragic.

He added; “I’m leaving the company by the end of this year, but I do so with confidence. Confident in Napoleon’s future, and confident in an ambitious, motivated team and experienced leadership under Eamonn O’Loughlin, the next Napoleon CEO.

“I’m sure Eamonn and the wider team will do great and wish him and everyone at Napoleon and the wider Superbet Group all the best.”
