As announced back in December 2017, William Hill is to have a new chairman.
As of last week, Roger Devlin has taken over the position long held by his predecessor Gareth Davis, who had been elected for chairman in 2010.
A betting industry veteran and Football Association executive, Devlin is well connected across the betting, leisure and sports industries, which will certainly help him in the difficult undertaking of managing William Hill now that the British company is changing rapidly. He joined the company as chairman designate on February 1, as it had been announced two months prior, but he finally took over the new role just a few days ago, on April 2.
So as to access his new position, Devlin had to give up his role as chairman at SIS Betting. Having connections and spreading influence all over and outside the industry, Devlin was also appointed chairman of the housebuilder Persimmon, planned to be in force starting with June 1.
Now that Mr. Davis has stepped down from his positions both of the chairman and chair of the company’s Nomination Committee, Roger Devlin is assuming his roles.
Much has been planned for William Hill in the near future. It is currently going through some changes, most of which are still kept secret from the public, but what we do know is that big things are on the horizon.
In the meantime, William Hill has approved a great deal of other changes regarding the non-executive structure of its varied committees.
As far as the department of Audit & Risk Management goes, that position will be taken by David Lowden, along the side of Mark Brooker, who will be chairing Corporate Responsibility Committee and Georgina Harvey the Remuneration Committee.
