David Harding, William Hill’s current CEO, is leaving the company at the end of 2007.
Harding’s career in William Hill started seven years ago. With his help the company’s share price increased, and it made up over twice its original value.
William Hill’s total value is currently at a massive Ј2.13 Billion. When the news about Harding’s leaving became known, Will Hill’s shares dropped 3.5 pence. Despite it the company is pleased with their financial assessment for 2007. All their ventures are expected to bring earnings.
On the other hand, Harding was a bit controversial, and William Hill perhaps does not want controversy. Who knows, perhaps it is better that “Harding is moving on”.
