Public Affairs: Betfair appoints Rumbelow for SA

Betfair has enlisted former Hutchison 3G government affairs chief Richard Rumbelow to lead its PA efforts in South Africa, where it is seeking a licence.

According to a spokeswoman, he will divide his time between London and South Africa and is on an initial six-month contract, reporting to Betfair director of comms Mike Davies.

Since leaving Hutchison 3G in 2003, Rumbelow has acted as a PA consultant for Royal Bank of Scotland and EDS.

Betfair's last PA director, Andrew Silverman, quit at the end of last year and has since joined the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
