William Hill Bookmaker company haven’t managed to find a new CEO since July 2016.
According to The Financial Times, the management of William Hill Bookmaker could not convince any worthy candidate.
In recent months GVC Holdings General Director Kenny Alexander and former Betfair COO Mark Brooker have been wooed for this position. Despite that William Hill insist on the absence of formal offers to any manager.
Philip Bowcock is an acting executive director now after CEO James Henderson retiring from his post in July 2016. He came to gambling for the post of William Hill CFO only in November last year. He has worked before on a similar position at Cineworld company.
William Hill received a number of merger offers in autumn this year. Some counteraction with a major partner could help William Hill to regain the title of the largest UK bookmaker amidst Ladbrokes/Coral and Paddy Power/Betfair recent merger deals. It could probably revive the company’s sluggish growth performance in the online segment.
However, Amaya, Rank Group Holdings and 888 offers were rejected. One of the reasons for such a decision could be lack of acting CEO, who could take over key negotiations with potential partners.
