Betfred appoint new finance director

15 December 2014

BETFRED have appointed Nicola Barr as their new finance director following the news that Barry Nightingale is leaving the bookmaker to join travel group Monarch in January.

Nightingale is returning to the travel sector where he spent ten years with Airtours. He joined Betfred in November 2008 and played a key role in the firm's acquisition of the Tote.

Betfred chief executive John Haddock said: "We would like to wish Barry Nightingale all the best and thank him for his contribution to Betfred.

"We have promoted from within and Nicola Barr now has the position of group finance director. Nicola has been with Betfred since January 2006.

"In that time Nicola has progressed from being our call centre and internet financial accountant to head of reporting and then to group financial controller. Nicola played a very important role in our acquisition of the Tote in July 2011."
