Meet the Author

Alex Gowar is the Head of Brand Marketing at Betfair. A punter for 15 years, he joined Betfair in 2002 when it employed about 100 people and has watched in amazement as it has grown into a global business employing well over a thousand people. During that time he has written and produced more ads, emails, websites, and TV commercials than he dares remember.

Jack Houghton was the Head of Horseracing Communications at Betfair. He has been a life-long punter and jumped at the chance to work at Betfair when offered a job there in 2004. In 2007, he left the business to follow his dream of training racehorses full-time. He also works as a freelance journalist, writing about horseracing and betting. He won the Martin Wills Award for racing journalism in 2002.
