Sky Bet marketing director Rob Painter, who joined the company last year, says: “We wanted an agency who could act as a true strategic partner and marry the complexities and speed of our business with exciting brand thinking – mcgarrybowen showed that they could deliver this and much more.”

Mcgarrybowen CEO Rick Hirst says: “We’re thrilled to have been appointed by such an innovative and ambitious brand in such a dynamic and fast-paced category. We’ve got plans to shake up this market with Sky Bet’s unique mix of sporting heritage and betting credibility.”
