William Hill to merge UK retail and online businesses. William Hill announced that they are going to merge their UK retail and online businesses.
The UK online managing director Phil Walker confirmed that he will take over responsibility for the UK Single Market division while retail head Nicola Frampton will step down. Both Frampton and Walker are expected to work alongside each other during the six-month transition phase.
“It has been an absolute privilege to lead the retail team at William Hill. Our shops play a vital role in our success and I look forward to working with Phil on a handover plan in the coming months,” Frampton said.
“We will be immensely sad to say goodbye to Nicola Frampton when the time comes. Nicola has been with William Hill for ten years and has been a driving force on the executive team as well as being instrumental in reshaping and transforming our retail business,” Ulrik Bengtsson, CEO of William Hill, said.
