The co-founder of online movie rental business Lovefilm, William Reeve, has been appointed head of operations at Paddy Power.

Mr Reeve (39) was appointed a non-executive director at the gambling group in 2010. He'll resign that position once he takes up he newly-created role in September.

In his new position he'll oversee technology, risk and trading, human resources and corporate strategy.

He's currently chairman of Media Ingenuity, a provider of finance leads via online display ads in the UK, and, a company that ships natural food products to online buyers.

Paddy Power said that it has also appointed Fin Goulding (51), the former chief technology officer of travel website as its chief information officer. His appointment became effective this week. He'll be responsible for leading Paddy Power's technology functions in the UK, Ireland and Italy and will report to Mr Reeve.

Paddy Power chief executive Patrick Kennedy said the new appointments would strengthen the group's ability to grow its business through operational scaling, technology planning and strategic development.
