Denise Coates boss of Bet365 UK’s highest-paid executive

Denise Coates, the billionaire boss of Bet365, is now officially the top paid boss in the UK. The co-founder of the online gambling firm was paid a £277m salary plus dividends adding a cool £323m to her already considerable personal wealth in the year to the end of March 2018. The firm her family founded had a £3bn turnover in the year to the end of March 2018 and a profit before tax of £791m. 

Ms Coates' brother John is joint chief executive and her father Peter is the firm's chairman. She's been called the UK's most successful woman, with a fortune that Forbes magazine puts in the region of £9.3bn.

Good luck to her and all that but the galling thing for me is, back a couple of winners with Bet365 and see how quick they close you down! Show some balls Bet365 it’s not like you aint got a couple of million spare…….
