Director of sponsorship and corporate communications leaves 'by mutual agreement'.
One of the best known corporate spokesmen in the industry, William Hill plc's David Hood, has departed the group 'by mutual agreement.'
The former jockey walks away from an 18 year career with the UK gambling group during which he served as the high profile director of sponsorships and public relations, frequently being quoted by the mainstream media as the company spokesman. Hood introduced a number of new innovations into the business and encouraged the expansion of the bookmaker's sponsorship portfolio.
Initiatives such as the 'greyhound vs horse' and 'greyhound vs pigeon' contests to promote his company's sponsorship of the Greyhound Derby highlighted his creativity, but Hood's antipathy towards betting exchanges made him less than popular in some circles.
"We would like to thank him for his contribution to the company," a new William Hill spokesman noted.
Hood did not detail his future plans, saying only: "I've had 18 years there and it is the right time to move on now. I've left by mutual agreement and I'm leaving a good team behind me."
