UKGC delays appointment of Jenny Williams Chief Executive replacement


Industry news source EGR Magazine has revealed that the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) will not name a successor to outgoing Chief Executive Jenny Williams until the conclusion of May’s UK General Election.

The UKGC had announced in September 2014, that Williams was due to depart as its Chief Executive following 10 service leading UKGC operations. The regulatory body had hoped to appoint a new Chief Executive by the start of 2015, however due to time scale and operational matters the recruitment and announcement of a successor has been put on hold.

EGR Magazine states that the UKGC has identified its preferred candidate to take over Williams leading role. Williams has agreed to continue to lead the regulators operations until the definite candidate is appointed.

The UKGC hopes to have a new Chief Executive in place by the start of September.
