UK bookmaker William Hill has announced a significant restructure in its governance, with the confirmation that Robin Terrell is set to be promoted to become the new chair of the company’s Audit and Risk Management Committee. 

The appointment will be effective from March 4 and will see Terrell take over from the current Audit Chair David Lowden, who had already announced his plans to leave the William Hill board in March.  

Terrell is known as an expert on commercial retail and leisure strategy and his previous positions have included the role of Chief Customer Officer of Tesco from 2013 to 2016 and as the Managing Director of John Lewis UK between 2008 and 2011. He has also worked in an executive advisory capacity with Tesco Mobile, Lazada Group and Amara Living. 

Terrell joined William Hill as a non-executive director in 2016, and has been a key member of the company’s Audit and Risk Management Committee since 2017. 

2019 is set to be a critical year for William Hill. The company has already started to make a significant expansion in its online European presence, with a move to buy the MRG Group, which was approved by regulators earlier this month. In the US, William Hill has also been a major player in the growing sports betting market, and is planning a series of recruitments to strengthen its US operation.
