Former William Hill man Marcus joins Betfair

08 September 2011

FORMER William Hill Online chief operating officer Peter Marcus has been appointed Betfair UK director from October 1. He will manage and oversee the UK-facing business, which accounts for just over 50 per cent of total revenue.

Marcus is joining from Betclic Everest, where as group chief strategy officer he oversaw the integration of Betclic, Expekt and Everest.

He will find himself in familiar company at Betfair, where onetime Hills colleague Ian Chuter became group operations director in July, as part of a recruitment drive to attract senior executives from the gambling industry.

Marcus, who has also worked for games provider Cryptologic, supervised operations for the joint venture between Hills and Playtech, and was responsible for moving the company's online function from the UK to Gibraltar.
