29th Apr 2020
Mark Webster has agreed to terms to extend his tenure as Inglis Managing Director for a further three years.
He will remain in the role until at least the end of 2023, which will take his time in the position to 16 years.
“It has been a privilege to serve as the Inglis Managing Director since 2007 and I am delighted to extend my term to assist the company through these challenging times and to implement a number of new growth opportunities,’’ Webster said.
“With the support of a dedicated and progressive board of directors and a first-class management team, I am enthusiastic to be serving the racing and breeding industry into the future.
“Innovation has been a priority during my tenure and I can assure our customers there is more to come.’’
Inglis Chairman John Coates said: “The Inglis board is very pleased that Mark has agreed to extend his term with us as Managing Director until the end of 2023.
“We’ve always been exceptionally pleased with his performance in leading the company in recent times including through the sale of Newmarket and the establishment of Riverside Stables especially.
“The way he led the team during the world’s first major online yearling sale at Easter last month was simply remarkable and it became clear to us that he’s the person to lead us through our COVID-19 recovery plan and beyond.
“We’re also excited that, like us, he sees further opportunities in the digital space and generally in the development of the company so I welcome his decision to extend his tenure.’’
