Betfair scoops Company of the Year for the Second Year Running

Betfair has been named the 2005 Company of the Year at the prestigious CBI Growing Business Awards.

At a ceremony in London hosted by William Hague, an audience of 700 entrepreneurs saw Lord Robertson make the award to Betfair’s Chief Operating Officer, David Yu.

The judges praised Betfair’s strong financial growth and market leading position and confirmed the CBI’s view of the company as one of Britain’s most respected businesses.

Betfair has single-handedly revolutionised the global betting industry since launching five years ago. It now accounts for over 40% of online gambling in the UK and is one of the most recognised betting brands worldwide. It is now preparing an application for an operating licence in Australia, following the passage of betting exchange legislation in the Tasmanian Parliament.

David Yu said: ”To win this prestigious award once is a great achievement but to retain it for a second year is remarkable. It is a fantastic endorsement of both our product and our business and we look forward to maintaining the staggering growth that the company has already experienced over the coming years.”

Sir Digby Jones, Director General of the CBI, commented on the Growing Business Awards: ”Thriving and innovative smaller companies are the backbone of British industry but all too often they are unsung heroes. These Awards are an invitation to share their success stories with us and help pave the way for even greater achievements.”

The CBI Company of the Year 2005 adds to a number of awards won by the company including recently being named as the ‘Socially Responsible Operator of the Year’ in the inaugural eGaming Review industry awards.
