Seeking to boost its industry M&A and commercial competencies, Toronto TSX-listed Amaya Inc has hired former William Hill Group Director of Strategy and Corporate Development Robin Chhabra.

As of yet, Chhabra has been given no official executive title, however joining Amaya he will act as corporate M&A lead as the firm’s governance seeks to expand its industry portfolio.

An industry financing expert, Chhabra has acted as William Hill corporate strategy lead since 2010, advising the FTSE-listed bookmaker’s governance on growth strategies, asset valuation and M&A initiatives.
