Henderson looking forward to new Gambling Trust role

02 June 2015

William Hill Chief Executive James Henderson has been appointed as a trustee of problem gambling charity the Responsible Gambling Trust. He replaces Richard Glynn on the board of trustees,the former Ladbrokes Chief Executive having left the bookmaker at the end of March. The charity said the appointment meant the RGT would maintain a balance between industry and independent trustees on its board.

 RGT chairman Neil Goulden said: “Industry representatives make an important contribution to the work of the Responsible Gambling Trust and Richard was an excellent and collaborative trustee committed to helping the trust to fulfil its charitable objectives. “I know James will be no less committed and will prove an important industry advocate for our work to minimise gambling related harm.

 In recent years we have had representatives from Coral and Ladbrokes on the board of trustees and James will ensure we continue to benefit from the experience of bookmakers.” Henderson said he was looking forward to participating first hand in the charity’s work. He added: “Responsible gambling 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 in the coming years.”
