Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment group, has made its debut in Management Today’s ranking of Britain’s Most Admired Companies as the runner-up for 2021.
This accolade follows a phenomenal year for the group which, led by CEO Jette Nygaard-Andersen, is pursuing an ambitious strategy centred around growth and sustainability.
Entain, whose global brands include Ladbrokes, Eurobet, bwin and, in the US, BetMGM, was commended for its efforts to tackle problem gambling, alongside wider environmental, social and governance issues.
The group has also been credited for its impressive earnings growth, joint venture with BetMGM in the US and investment in esports, gaming and technology.
“This recognition is a true testament to the entire team at Entain," commented Rob Wood, CFO and deputy CEO. "We’ve been through a remarkable period of transformation since 2020.
"We have made our mark as a global brand and experienced huge growth, all while putting sustainability and ESG at the heart of everything we do."
