Bransby to sad­dle up as new chief

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

ROB Bransby will be Perth Rac­ing’s new chief ex­ec­u­tive.

The health and in­sur­ance busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive will start next year and said horses had al­ways played a spe­cial part in his life.

Mr Bransby is a thor­ough­bred breeder and is the son of lo­cal trainer, the late Bob Bransby, who man­aged Pa­trol Zone to vic­tory at As­cot for the Aquanita Stakes in 1982.

He said the role would truly be a labour of love for him.

“I am thrilled to be join­ing Perth Rac­ing at a piv­otal point in their his­tory and ex­cited at the pos­si­bil­i­ties,” he said.

Perth Rac­ing chair­man Neil Pin­ner said Mr Bransby was the most suit­able per­son to prin­ci­pally man­age the next stage of Perth Rac­ing’s de­vel­op­ment and pro­pel the five-year mas­ter­plan.

“The club is go­ing through ex­cit­ing times and Bransby’s knowl­edge and ex­per­tise in financial and as­set man­age­ment will be of great ben­e­fit to all ar­eas of the busi­ness,” he said.

“His af­fec­tion for thor­ough­bred rac­ing and in­ter­est in lift­ing the busi­ness pro­file to cor­po­rate and tourism sec­tors will po­si­tion the Perth Rac­ing brand in good stead.”
