Betting agent William Hill has announced the appointment of Adrian Marsh as its new chief financial officer.
Marsh will join the company and be appointed as executive director to the William Hill board later this year.
Last month, the company’s current CFO, Ruth Prior announced her departure from the company to join Elements Materials Technology as CFO.
Marsh will join William Hill from packaging business, DS Smith, where he has been group CFO for the past seven years. He also holds the position of non-executive director of John Wood and chair of its Audit Committee.
He has also held the position of group director of tax, treasury and corporate finance of Tesco.
CEO Ulrik Bengtsson said: “I am delighted to welcome Adrian to the board. As a proven CFO of a FTSE listed company with M&A, deal execution and multi-sector finance experience in US & European markets, he will be able to make a significant contribution to William Hill in the enablement of the strategy and is a great addition to the team.”
Marsh added: “I am extremely excited to be joining William Hill at such a key time in the Company’s history, and look forward to supporting Ulrik and the rest of board in delivering their growth plans for the future.”
