GOFFS UK have appointed Tony Williams as their new managing director. He will take up the position on October 7.

From Australia, Williams has worked in the industry for more than 40 years. Previous roles include nine years at Magic Millions before helping to set up Newgate Stud in New South Wales.

He has also worked as an agent to the Hong Kong Jockey Club in connection with the Hong Kong International Sale since 2000.

Goffs group chief executive Henry Beeby said: “Tony brings a wealth of experience to Goffs UK and we’re confident he will prove a valuable addition to our passionate team.

“A respected horseman, Tony is also a natural leader as well as a genuine people person, which is crucial for an auction house. His long career, and the respect in which he’s held in his home country, will give him the ideal platform to contribute to the growth and development of Goffs UK over the next decade.”

Williams added: “In the world of thoroughbred auction houses, Goffs is a revered name.

“I’m honoured by the appointment and can’t wait to start developing relationships with buyers, vendors and the Goffs UK team who have developed a strong business model.

“My excitement about the company and drive to succeed in this business is second to none, so this is an opportunity to excel, implement a lifetime of experience and assist in the growth of Goffs UK with a dynamic team.

“If our clients are successful, we will be successful, and I make it clear that we’ll strive to achieve in all areas with success, growth and strong relationships.”

Williams will be in attendance at next week’s Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale.
