William Hill appoints Robin Terrell as corporate Audit & Risk chair

FTSE bookmaker William Hill has moved to restructure its governance executive frameworks, confirming that Robin Terrell has been promoted as new chair of the firm’s corporate Audit & Risk Management Committee.

Effective from 4 March 2019, Terrell will replace current Audit Chair David Lowden, who as previously announced will step down from the bookmaker’s board by March 2019.

A commercial retail and leisure strategy and transformation expert, Terrell is the former Chief Customer Officer of Tesco Plc (2013-2016) and Managing Director of John Lewis UK (2008-2011).

As an executive, Terrell has served in further as a governance advisor to Tesco Mobile, Lazada Group and Amara Living.

Appointed as a William Hill non-executive director in 2016, Terrell has been a member of the bookmaker’s Audit & Risk Management Committee since 2017.

William Hill enters a critical 2019, in which the FTSE enterprise will move to significantly expand its European online presence, having secured regulatory approval to acquire Stockholm-listed MRG Group this January for €270 million.

Stateside, William Hill governance has committed to undertaking major recruitment and resources drive bolstering its William Hill US division led by North America Chief Executive Joe Asher.
