WELL-OILED MA­CHINE

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - RACING - Is there any­thing you would like to see Magic Mil­lions im­ple­ment?

Q

What was the most sat­is­fy­ing achieve­ment in your time as the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Magic Mil­lions?

A

The suc­cess of the sales have been fan­tas­tic and it’s great to be part of. But the No.1 thing I’m proud of is that when I left, ev­ery­one went up a rung in the busi­ness. It vin­di­cated the strength of the team at Magic

Mil­lions. It is a well-oiled ma­chine and ev­ery­one knows their roles and are ex­tra­or­di­nary high achiev­ers who want to de­liver in ev­ery as­pect of the Magic Mil­lions sales.

Q

What was it like work­ing for the char­ac­ter that is Magic Mil­lions owner Gerry Har­vey?

A

What you see in the press is what you get. He is no dif­fer­ent work­ing with him. He is a good guy, very in­sight­ful in terms of busi­ness and has a great sense of hu­mour. He is very mat­ter-of-fact but not an in­ter­fer­ing boss. Katie (Page-Har­vey) is the brains and driv­ing force be­hind the event and turned it into one of the most sig­nif­i­cant events in the thor­ough­bred in­dus­try. What she brings to the ta­ble for Magic Mil­lions is ex­tra­or­di­nary.

Q

Was there any un­fin­ished busi­ness at Magic Mil­lions?

A

No. I fin­ished my ten­ure at Magic Mil­lions and now it’s (new man­ag­ing di­rec­tor) Barry (Bowditch’s) turn. He is a young and very ca­pa­ble man who is very en­thu­si­as­tic and can stamp his mark on the event.
