David Lowden to depart role at William Hill

David Lowdena non-executive director on the board of UK betting and gaming operator William Hill, is to leave his position with the company in March.

Lowden (pictured) has accepted a position as chairman and independent non-executive director of London-listed healthcare and communications group Huntsworth. He takes on the director role on 1 January and will become chairman of the board of Huntsworth and of its Nomination Committee on March 6.

As a consequence, Lowden is to step down from the board of William Hill on 4 March, 2019.

Roger Devlin, William Hill Chairman, said in a statement: “On behalf of the William Hill board, I would like to thank David and acknowledge his contribution and service to the board over the last seven years, in particular his chairmanship of the Audit and Risk Management Committee.

“David has been a valued member of the board and I am particularly grateful for his counsel and support since I took on the role of chairman.”

A successor to Lowden as chair of the Audit and Risk Management Committee will be announced in due course, the bookmaker said.
