William Hill is one of the biggest gambling operators in the United Kingdom, but it has branches and operations in many countries and regions around the world. These regions include the USA. The US branch of William Hill (William Hill US), has appointed a new president of digital, and that new president is Kenneth Fuchs, the media and technology specialist. The new appointment is aiming to build and enhance its already existing presence in the ever-expanding US Sports wagering market.
Who is Kenneth Fuchs – The Technology and Media Specialist?
Kenneth Fuchs joined William Hill US coming from STATS, the sports data supplier. He was the Chief Executive of STATS during his time there. STATS provides a wide assortment of data-driven products which includes analytics, software, and content for many brands including ESPN, Apple, and Google.
Before he was the Chief Executive at STATS, he was the VP of Yahoo Entertainment, Music, Finance and Yahoo Sports. He oversaw the strategy and the operations for each section. Even before that, very early in his career, he had several senior positions in media corps like Fox Interactive Media and Time Incorporated.
Kenneth Fuchs Comments on his new Position in William Hill
Kenneth Fuchs stated that William Hill US has a successful and an established business in the state of Nevada and it has achieved amazing progress since Sports Wagering became legal in other places in the beginning of 2018. He also added that he is looking forward to work with the team at William Hill US as they pursue leadership in the market while aiming to deliver top-notch mobile and digital experiences to the partners and customers.
William Hill’s Chief Executive Talks about the New Appointment
William Hill US’ Chief Executive, Joe Asher, said that Fuchs would undoubtedly help the operator build on the footprint of the company in the US Sports Betting market. He added that Kenneth Fuchs has a well-established record at leadership positions in media and technology companies, as well as a robust digital background that is going to allow them to continue enhancing and innovating their digital products, as new states are legalizing sports wagering.
William Hill US currently has 108 sportsbooks across Nevada, and it also gives consumers the ability to place sports bet with their phone. Since the repealed of the PASPA last May, William Hill expanded its operations beyond the state of Nevada to reach other states that legalized sports betting. William Hill currently operates at the Ocean Resort Casino, Tropicana Atlantic City in NJ and the Monmouth Park Racetrack, in addition to the sports betting mobile application. The progress of the company is a result of being the first company to enter the newly-regulated sports betting market in the USA back in June.
The company’s expansion in the US market also got a boost as a result of its partnership with Eldorado Resorts, the Casino Giant, which it announced in September. William Hill US became the sole provider of land-based sports wagering products for the Eldorado Casino, and it will help the company roll out its online wagering services in other states where the regulations allow it.
