Jenny Williams, chief executive of the UK Gambling Commission, announced her departure from the position September last year, agreeing to stay in-post until a suitable successor has been found. The decision has been jeopardized recently by the fast-approaching British general elections. The appointment of a successor to outgoing head of the UK Gambling Commission will not take effect until the political changing of the guard has been concluded. The current estimates are that the appointment could be as late as September this year. The original plan was to have the change done by the beginning of 2015. There are rumors that the Commission has already settled on a new chief executive candidate, but his or hers identity will not be announced any time soon.
