Yanica Sant on Monday shared that she has been promoted to Group Legal Director – Regulatory at 888 William Hill.

Her new role comes around a year after she moved to the UK to join William Hill as Group Senior Legal Counsel – Regulatory. Just a few months later, international gambling conglomerate 888 Holdings completed the acquisition of the betting and iGaming company for £2.2 billion (€2.59 billion), 888 Holdings’ largest acquisition since its listing in 2005. The acquisition has prompted Dr Sant’s role within the group to continue to “grow and evolve”.

Dr Sant had initially joined as a Legal Department Intern in 2014, before she worked her way up the corporate ladder to roles including Head of EU Affairs and Policy and Data Protection Officer, as well as General Counsel.

She holds a Doctor of Laws a Bachelor of Laws, both from University of Malta, and was also awarded a Notary Public Diploma in 2014. She also holds a Master of Laws in Computer and Communications Law from Queen Mary University of London.
