Maurya has been with the company for four years now. She originally joined GVC Holdings, a company that underwent transformative changes and moved to become Entain, the entertainment giant we know today. Maurya was bumped to head of digital clients in August 2019 and then head of the digital for Ladbrokes Coral in June 2020 with the company already becoming Entain.

She has worked elsewhere as well, including at Cerillion Technologies and EPAM Systems, and is an experienced professional who can bring around the transformative change the Entain brands need to remain competitive and continue to improve in the long term.

Maurya said that she is looking to work closely with the entire team to ensure that the customers at Ladbrokes Coral receive the best possible service. These changes come in the broader context of Entain still on track to hit $1.3 billion in revenue in 2022 despite some microeconomic challenges.

Most recently, the company appointed Dominic Grounsell to lead the company as its new chief commercial officer. Entain remains committed to the brand’s global operations scaling rapidly, including through BetMGM in the United States and now Ontario.
