New CEO for British Horseracing Authority

Paul Bittar gets the job

A report arrived this week that Chief Strategy Officer at Racing Victoria Paul Bittar (41) is to take up new responsibilities in the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), the governing and regulatory authority for British Racing, where he is to replace Chris Brand on the position of Chief Executive.

Brand occupied the position only temporarily, after former CEO Nic Coward left the authority in March 2011.

Apart from Racing Victoria, Bittar also worked as Chief Executive of New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing. As for his new position, he will occupy it in January 2012.

According to Paul Roy, Chairman of the British Horseracing Authority, "Paul Bittar is a racing enthusiast through and through. He combines keen management and financial skills with love for the sport and a well-informed understanding of the challenges that British Racing must overcome at this time. After a prolonged and painstaking search, the selection team was unanimous in putting him forward for the job."
