William Hill Losing Key Online Exec

Head of online Andrew Lee on the way out

The Reuters news agency reported Thursday that Andrew Lee, the head of online operations at William Hill plc, is leaving the company.

Reuters notes that his departure follows that of a number of other high-profile resignations, putting further pressure on Britain's biggest bookmaker.

"The loss of Andrew Lee follows the exit of Finance Director Neil Cooper, who left last year to join Barratt Developments , while Kristof Fahy, the chief marketing officer, joined rival Ladbrokes," Reuters reports, adding that Lee will be leaving the business at some point in 2016.

William Hill on Thursday reported 2015 operating profit of GBP 290 million pounds, in line with market expectations.
