What was the most satisfying achievement in your time as the managing director of Magic Millions?
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.
What was it like working for the character that is Magic Millions owner Gerry Harvey?
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.
Was there any unfinished business at Magic Millions?
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.
