Lothar Rentschler, the Chief Marketing Officier at Pocket Kings Ltd. (Full Tilt Poker's parent company), has decided to step down from his position and leave the company after nearly 3 years. There is no doubt whatsoever that Rentschler, just like many other employees, has decided to quit due to the complicated situation at the company since Black Friday. Rentschler's duties at the company will officially end on September.
"This was, after almost 3 years with the company, not an easy step... It was 3 years with many challenges and also many successes... However, given the current circumstances, I do believe it is a long overdue step towards the right direction.
"I do apologize for the inconvenience the current circumstances at PKL have caused for you personally as well as for your respective companies. Our hands in Marketing were bound and at the end even every communication was stopped. Again, I can only apologize for this situation. The future will hopefully see a better, well organized structure and a return to business as usual. To see the brand FTP going down that way, hurts a lot." Lothar Rentschler writes in an e-mail dated August 16.
