Heath Kilgour is the co-founder of footytips.com.au. The business was started in his lounge room with a friend while at Uni in 1999 and footytips.com.au has grown to be one of Australia’s largest sporting sites with 1.4m UB’s per month. Footytips.com.au was acquired in August 2011 by global sports giant ESPN (part of the Disney group).
During this time, Heath and co-founder Nathan sold the business to Tattersalls and bought it back again 5 years late. After buying the business back, they focused the business heavily on the advertising space creating some stellar growth. More recently, the business has been focused heavily on mobile sites and apps with great success.
Heath studied Marketing at RMIT and his career started at Deloitte and an early dot.com advertising company.
