PETROFAC’S AYMAN ASFARI NAMED AS UK ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR

first_imgMonday 18 October 2010 8:38 pm IN A climate where repairing the frazzled economy is paramount, it seemed fitting to see hundreds of the UK’s most successful company bosses and their advisers, bankers and friends gather at the Park Lane Hilton last night to celebrate the heroes of the recovery – entrepreneurs – at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.The most coveted gong bestowed upon the country’s wealth creators each year – the overall UK entrepreneur of the year – this time round went to Petrofac chief executive Ayman Asfari, a name which has had eagle-eyed stockpickers foaming at the mouth for years.Having built Petrofac into a £5bn business since its £750m flotation in 2005, Asfari is always hungering for more – and had the following inspirational, if somewhat cheesy, advice for his fellow entrepreneurs.“Aim high, stick the course and shoot for the stars,” he told the guests. “There’s no limit to what you can achieve.”PROUD AS PUNCHEqually stirring, if less poetic, was last year’s winner Michael Spencer, the boss of inter-dealer broker Icap.Spencer went on from the UK awards last year to clinch EY’s World Entrepreneur of the Year gong in Monaco in June, from the jaws of 49 rivals from across the globe.“When they announced that I’d won, we went crazy,” Spencer chuckled. “We danced around the place with the Union Jack; you’d all have been proud as hell!”Spencer’s girlfriend Sarah (Marchioness of Milford Haven) was undoubtedly proud as hell as well, especially as her man paid special tribute to her influence last night.“I went over [to Monaco] with my girlfriend, who’s also here tonight,” the incurable romantic quipped. “She has certainly been a talismanic success, I must say…”GOLDEN OLDIESLeading the pack in the rest of this year’s awards, presented by BBC news stunner Fiona Bruce, were a pair of old-timers from the corporate world. Lord Young of Graffham, the former president of the Institute of Directors, was given a special award in recognition of his contribution to entrepreneurship over the past 50 years (“this is the very first award I’ve ever won”, Young smiled, cradling the trophy to his chest); while Brian Souter of Stagecoach won the master entrepreneur of the year award, bestowed upon him in absentia by the CBI’s director-general Richard Lambert.IN STYLEJulian Dunkerton, the chief executive of retailer Supergroup, won the retail entrepreneur gong, after floating his company on the stock exchange in March and more than doubling its share price in half a year.“There’s great product and then there’s fashion and they’re two different things,” Dunkerton insisted, shunning the cult status imposed upon his brand by the unofficial patronage of image-conscious stars like David Beckham. “It’s not all about the catwalk – we’re about creating the enduring classics.”Meanwhile, James Benamor, chief executive of Richmond Group, won the consumer products and services category – fittingly in the current climate, since his company provides funding to those who’s been refused credit by the large banks; Telecity Group’s Michael Tobin took the IT services gong; Nick Jenkins, founder of personalised greeting card site Moonpig, win the digital and innovation award; and the social entrepreneur category went to Sophi Tranchell, founder of Divine Chocolate – which is 45 per cent owned by the Ghanaian farmers which produce its cocoa.

UK Tote Group agrees long-term partnership with Tote Ireland

first_img Email Address UK Tote Group agrees long-term partnership with Tote Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Sports betting Horse racing Horse racing 29th April 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Race Track and Racino Regions: UK & Ireland The UK Tote Group has entered into a seven-year strategic agreement with Tote Ireland, under which the two organisations will work together to enhance their offerings for customers and partners.From 1 January 2021, pools in Irish racing will benefit from increased liquidity, with the alliance to ensure that Tote Ireland can continue as a sustainable, self-funding business that returns its profits to Irish racing.UK Tote Group will operate Tote Ireland’s off-course business, with the aim of helping Tote Ireland build a stronger on-course presence in Ireland.In addition, the two organisations will work together to jointly distribute and promote Tote betting on Irish and British racing around the world.Horse Racing Ireland (HRI), the national governing body for the sports in the Republic of Ireland, has given its approval to the new alliance.“The alignment of Tote Ireland with the UK Tote Group provides a sustainable long-term foundation and secures a modern and progressive future for one of the most traditional and valued elements of Irish racing,” HRI chairman Nicky Hartery said.“This alliance will produce a new offering that will be attractive to international operators and will maximise turnover on Irish racing through new and existing business channels.HRI chief executive Brian Kavanagh said that while Tote Ireland had a strong relationship with racecourses and served as a keen supporter and sponsor of the industry, changes in punters’ habits had resulted in a decline in on-course turnover. This had been exacerbated further by the loss of major festival events as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.“This has greatly impacted the ability of Tote Ireland to develop the products necessary to compete in the digital off-course arena and one of the crucial attractions of this alliance is that it will allow Tote Ireland to develop a joint offering with the UK Tote Group which will be highly attractive to international markets.”UK Tote Group chief executive Alex Frost pledged to come up with innovative new ways of presenting tote betting to racing fans, both on-course and via digital channels.“We have already made great strides since acquiring the UK Tote six months ago, including the launch of a new website, the return of Tote Ten to Follow and growth in significant international partnerships,” Frost explained. “There remains much work to do but together we have great people with the necessary skills, resources and determination to ensure both Tote Ireland and the UK Tote have a bright future.”The new alliance comes after the UK Tote Group earlier this month also entered an international commingling agreement with Sportech. Under the deal, betting technology provider Sportech will supply its proprietary digital platform to the UK Tote Group.The UK Tote Group also recently extended its service offering to help fill the void left by the cancellation of UK racing due to the coronavirus. Its customers can now bet on racing from Hong Kong and Sweden, where events are still taking place. The UK Tote Group has entered into a seven-year strategic agreement with Tote Ireland, under which the two organisations will work together to enhance their offerings for customers and partners.last_img read more

Set on the foothills of Maharashtra in Alibaug, far away from the busy city life of Mumbai. The plot was a dry barren piece of parched earth.

However, in a statement on the BT site announcing the news, the company says it is closing because there are many other platforms available that people can use to fundraise for a charity or cause, and that it will instead be ‘refocusing its community investments on helping our customers and communities get the most out of the digital world.’Donations can be made on MyDonate until midnight on 30 June 2019, after which point they will no longer be accepted, with funds raised sent to the chosen charity within 30 days, including Gift Aid. It is no longer accepting any new charities on the platform, and any that have recently registered with it will have their documents returned.The news follows JustGiving UK’s announcement late last year of the March closure of its free text giving service, JustTextGiving.Virgin Money Giving was quick to respond to the news by dropping its £150 joining fee for new charities until 30 April. It has a 2% platform fee, which donors now have the option of paying on behalf of the charity. According to the company, since launching ‘Donor Covers Fee’ in November 2018, eight in ten donors are choosing to pay the fee on behalf of the charity. Jo Barnett, Executive Director at Virgin Money Giving said: “We are delighted to give charities the opportunity to register with Virgin Money Giving free of charge. Anyone impacted by today’s announcement from BT MyDonate will need to consider their fundraising options and the fees and charges they are likely to pay in the future. We believe our model offers a viable, long-term, transparent solution for charities.”  449 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis102 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
