Who is Britain's Best Paid Boss?

Geoff Riley

8th January 2024

The answer is Denise Coates, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Bet365. In the year to March 2023, Coates was paid about £221 million. The founder also took at least £50 million in dividends despite gambling group’s £72.6 million pre-tax loss.

Graham's comments:

Here's a conundrum for free market economists. Is there a justification for Denise Coates having earned £270m in salary and bonuses in the past year? We're meant to believe that pay is determined by the marginal productivity of the worker. So does Ms.Coates have a daily marginal revenue product of £1m?
