MaxBox’s Egan joins the British Olympic team

Thursday, 20 March 2008
Andy Egan, the chairman of digital retail kiosk firm MaxBox, has been invited onto the council of the British Olympic Association Appeal 2008.

MaxBox, which markets ‘off the shelf’ digital retail services such as mobile top-ups, games and music downloads, was recently bought out of Felix Group PLC by Egan after the firm went into administration.

It has since enjoyed a positive second lease of life and has just signed a distribution deal with TCSJOHNHUXLEY Europe to place 5000 kiosks in casinos and gaming centres worldwide.

In his new Olympic role Egan will be working with the British Olympic Association (BOA) to raise the �18,000 needed to support each athlete that is aiming to compete in Beijing.

100% of the funds raised go directly towards ensuring that UK sportsmen and women will be able to compete on equal terms with the best in the world.

To contact Egan see the MaxBox website.
