    Obviously some changes in management of the company is needed but probably this appointment of the new position is some kind of advancement for Mark Brooker but I guess only Betfair management knows exactly what this means. I sometimes bet on their sportsbook site and I must admit that I'm not fascinated by the site navigation which I think is their main problem really.

    The COO reports to the CEO who reports to the Board of Directors. Now, Mark Brooker has been appointed to the Board as an executive director. So, Booker reports to the CEO who reports to Booker. I think that's it, or I maybe wrong. It does sound kinda funny, don't you think. I am not sure what else to say about this subject................

    I've just started getting into Betfair. It's an oldie, and it really does seem to be being run like a decent business is run. I can just tell, flaky as that may be. Investment banker to online casino executive...plus good-looking. Might be interesting for the industry, in general.
