There’s another feather on William Hill’s cap because its Chief Executive Officer was appointed trustee to the Responsible Gambling Trust, a gambling charity in UK.
Mr. James Henderson of the UK-based gambling operator William Hill replaced the former CEO of Ladbrokes, Richard Glynn, on the Trustees Board. The said appointment was indicative of RGT’s aim to maintain a balance between industry and independent trustees on its board and to keep on benefiting from experience and knowledge acquired from all important sectors of the UK gambling industry.
According to RGT chairman Neil Goulden, the new appointee will certainly contribute to the Trust’s main goal to minimize gambling-related risks. In addition to that, Goulden also hopes that Henderson will be just as committed as Glynn in the future.
On the other hand, the 53-year-old chief executive expressed his delight over the trust that RGT has given him. He, being the new member of the RGT Board, looks forward to take part in the charity’s succeeding works.
“Responsible gaming is a key area that requires continuous focus and improvement, and, therefore, I’m pleased to be able to combine my experience and knowledge with other Trustees to promote responsible gambling over the coming years,” William Hill’s CEO added.
Annually, the trust raises no less than £5 million from UK-based gambling operators within a donation based system and funds research, education, prevention and treatment services. Surely, with Henderson’s 30 years of experience and knowledge in gambling operations, he can easily help the trust raise more funds for its further projects or campaigns.
Indeed, RGT is not wrong for choosing him to be a part of the Board of Trustees. Like in William Hill, he can also lead the gambling charity group and make another successful year for them.
