“It’s been an honor and to work with you all these years, but now it’s time for me to step away,” said Bengtsson. “I’m handing over leadership of William Hill as planned so that Itai Pazner can take on his new role as CEO.”
“It’s been a long road to get here, but I am proud that our hard work and dedication has led us towards this point. We have seen the massive potential of acquiring William Hill not only for ourselves, but also with what it will do for both businesses in terms on opportunities opened up.”
