Marcus bites the bullet

Marcus bites the bullet

The chief operating officer for William Hill Online, Peter Marcus, has revealed that he is a casualty of the company restructuring program following its deal with Playtech, saying that he will depart in weeks rather than months.

Talking about his move, Marcus said that some of his management functions had been relocated to Tel Aviv in Israel, a situation that he was not interested in continuing which lead to a mutual agreement with the company that he would leave.

Marcus has a solid track record in management, having previously spent almost five years with the top online casino Intercasino as vice president marketing before moving to William Hill plc in June 2008. He was part of the negotiation and integration group responsible for the major GBP 144.5 m Playtech-Will Hill deal finalised in January 2009 which gave birth to William Hill Online.
