Meanwhile, Safer Gambling lead Dan Whitlam steps down from the operator after holding his position since February 2019. During his time at William Hill, Whitlam supervised the implementation of the operator’s responsible gambling strategy across its UK retail estate, which included driving William Hill’s product and marketing offerings in a move to promote responsible gambling measures.
Strengthening the operator’s compliance efforts, Lottoland’s former general counsel and group company secretary Lloyd Lemmon has joined William Hill as the new director of legal and compliance for its UK online division. Starting his new role at the beginning of the month, Lemmon will serve the company from its Gibraltar office.
Earlier this month, Chief Financial Officer Ruth Prior confirmed that she will also be stepping down as CFO and as a Director of the Company where she will return to the private equity sector, joining Element Materials Technology as its new CFO.
Prior has been praised for her role in developing and delivering the strategy of the Company and driving several transformation initiatives, as well as having responsibility for Group Assurance and Procurement functions.
