Bet365 founder and joint CEO, Denise Coates broke the internet when reports indicated that she received a mind-blowing pay pack of £469 million ($648 million) in 2020. She already holds the positions of UK’s highest-paid woman and its highest-paid executive (2018 and 2019), and these mouth-watering figures could make her the most well-compensated person in British corporate history. She may be on the verge of becoming the highest-paid executive in the world if she keeps on with this streak.
According to Bet365’s annual account, Coates received £421 million ($582 million) as her salary in 2020 which is a new record for her. In 2019, she took home £277 million ($383 million).
Since she owns 50.1 percent of the company, she will receive a further £48 million ($66 million) in dividends.
