(Bloomberg News) - 888 Holdings (888.com) the U.K.-listed Internet gambling company that may be bought by Ladbrokes, said Chief Executive Officer Gigi Levy is stepping down “to pursue other interests.”

Levy, who joained 888 Holdings  in 2006 and took over as CEO the following year, will remain on the board, the Gibraltar- based company said in an e-mailed statement today.

“Following very strong trading in the first quarter of 2011, which has continued into the second quarter, Gigi has decided to step down, leaving the company well positioned for the future,” the company said in the statement.

888 Holdings, which supplies services to Caesars Entertainment Corp., has been in talks with Ladbrokes since December on a possible takeover. A previous round of talks between the companies ended in 2007.

Brian Mattingley, deputy chairman and non-executive director at 888, will “work closely with management on all aspects of the business” pending the appointment of a new CEO, according to the statement.
