The review comes as part of a major overhaul of the brand's marketing strategy, which is being implemented by William Hill's new group brand and marketing director Kristof Fahy.

Alex O'Shaughnessy, William Hill's head of product and marketing communications, handled the process.

Previous to the appointment, William Hill had used an in-house marketing team to create the majority of its ads. It had also worked with the Manchester-based agency BJL on a project basis.
