The London personnel head hunting firm Amos and Bailey has been commissioned to find the right man – or woman – to head up the significant online operations of the William Hill gambling group in Europe, reports The Times.
 
The successful applicant will take responsibility for the extensive November 2008 relaunch of the group's online operations, re-engineered on the directions of Group CEO Ralph Topping after an expensive and failed attempt to set up its own technology The new system is currently being constructed by Orbis Openbet. 
 
The Times comments that the incumbent could at some future stage be in line for Topping's job, too.
 
Some 20 percent of Will Hill group revenues currently come from the Internet operations of the firm, but Topping is on record as saying that he believes this can be boosted by another 10 percent with the right sort of restructured online activity, and could even bring in 50 percent of group revenues in time.
