Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) is delighted to have appointed Mark Tranter to a newly created position of Analyst.

After six years as Betting Analyst at Paddy Power Betfair Mark will join ARC on Monday 12 September. He will report into ARC’s Group Financial Controller Paul Smith and provide support and analysis on all aspects of the business.

Mark has extensive knowledge of the betting and racing industries. He has been central to Betfair’s collaborative relationship with British Racing following the signing of a five year commercial deal with the sport in 2012. This saw Betfair share betting patterns and trends with British Racing stakeholders in a far more detailed and extensive manner than done previously by any betting operator.

ARC’s Group Financial Controller, Paul Smith, said: “We are really pleased Mark is joining ARC. His extensive knowledge of the betting landscape and analytical skills will be a great addition to the ARC team. It is essential we have a detailed understanding of the betting landscape so we can continue to work with betting operators to grow interest in the sport. We look forward to welcoming him next month.”

Mark Tranter said: “I have really enjoyed my time at Paddy Power Betfair but the role at ARC represents a huge opportunity and I look forward to starting next month.”
