Betfair Australia Appoints New CEO

Betfair Australia has appointed Andrew Twaits as its new chief executive officer, effective mid-October.

Twaits will replace Anthony Klok, who is joining Crown Limited as international business development director.

Crown is one of Australia’s largest entertainment groups and has a 50 percent interest in Betfair Australasia. The other 50 percent is owned by Betfair UK.

Klok will continue to serve as a member of the Betfair Australia board.

Twaits has been Betfair’s director of corporate and business affairs in Australia since April 2005. He is a former lawyer and has previously served as general manager of legal and business affairs for Cricket Australia.
