PartyPoker's CEO, Jim Ryan, is to step down from his position at the company after four years of service.

His departure will leave bwin.party's other CEO, Norbert Teufelberger, to navigate the choppy waters on the poker industry on his own.

Since taking over as PartyPoker's top figure in 2008, Ryan has overseen a number of milestones in the company's history, including a $105 million payment to the US government following UIGEA and the acquisition of the World Poker Tour.

Together Ryan and Teufelberger have helped bolstered bwin.party's overall package, expanding their bingo offering, as well as launching a fast-fold poker product and offloading the Ongame Network.

Ryan has stated that he's planning on moving back to his native Canada with his wife and children before contemplating his next career move.

So good news for the rest of us. Where do we apply for his position? Smile
I wonder what his payroll was.
I bet there are many poker players who would trade playing poker, for his monthly paycheck.

So do you think he's just made enough money and calling it quits or is he getting out before something happens like with other sites? Or, do you think he will open a new site to where he can get the business from U.S. citizens? There's going to be a change implemented here real soon for the U.S. This meaning about March of next year.

They pulled out of the US market a few years ago, thats why they lost the top spot to Stars. I guess Bwin is the bigger dog now, so they will make the critical decisions.
