The Board of William Hill PLC has announced that James Henderson, an internal candidate who has been at the bookmaker for 29 years, has been appointed to their Board and will take over from Ralph Topping as Chief Executive Designate as from 1st August, 2014.
Topping will stand down after 44 years with the group, six of which he spent as Chief Executive.
According to Gareth Davis, the Chairman of William Hill which is Britain’s biggest bookmaker, Henderson came out “head and shoulders” on top of a list of approximately 14 “credible candidates” that included external applicants wishing to succeed Ralph Topping.
While Ralph Topping started off as a “Saturday boy” at a betting shop in Glasgow, James Henderson started off his career at the group in November 1985 at a branch of Mecca Bookmakers on Goldhawk Road in West London. Mecca Bookmakers later merged with William Hill in 1988.
Henderson remained with the company ever since 1985 and has taken on many of the roles that Topping himself had held while rising through the ranks. These roles included overseeing the bookmaker’s online business and retail division before he succeeded in getting the top job.
During a video interview, James Henderson revealed that his immediate priorities are to sit down with the team in order to discuss what the future looks like for William Hill, both from an organic point of view, building on the outstanding foundations that they have, but also looking at what opportunities could present themselves over the next two or three years.
It has been reported that State Senator Ray Lesniak intends introducing a bill that could continue the fight to legalize sports betting in his state by de-criminalising the practice. This follows a recent decision by the US Supreme Court to lower court findings against the attempt by New Jersey to undermine the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, the (PASPA), by the implementation of intrastate legislation on sports betting.
According to Lesniak he expects that the U.S. Justice Department will refrain from intervening, just as they have with Washington and Colorado when those states legalized marijuana.
Lesniak intends implementing his de-criminalisation law mainly at racetracks and casinos in New Jersey.
However, it is predicted that Lesniak’s move will trigger an aggressive and litigious response from sports leagues such as the National Football League that has a tough stance on any sports betting outside that which is permitted by the PASPA.
Despite the fact that Lesniak is not new at driving gambling issues through the state legislation he will, nevertheless, need to manage the passage of his bill through both Houses in the state legislature and thereafter persuade governor Chris Christie to sign the bill into law.
In the past, Chris Christie has shown that he is quite prepared to exercise his veto powers if he thinks that it is necessary and Lesniak’s new initiative will possibly bring him into political conflict with the federal authorities.
Christie reacted to the Supreme Court rejection by saying “that’s the way it goes – nothing more I can say – they said no so we have to move on”.
