Jeff Randall joins Sandown as director

29 April 2014

JEFF RANDALL, best known for his roles as a presenter on Sky News and business editor of the BBC, has joined Sandown Park as a non-executive director.

Randall, a lifelong racing fan whose previous jobs have included Editor-at-Large at the Daily Telegraph and sports editor of the Sunday Times, retired from journalism in March.

However, he has already started his move into the boardroom having previously become a non-executive director of engineering support services company Babcock International.

Randall said: "I am delighted to be joining the board at Sandown Park, one of my favourite racecourses. Thanks to my late father, I was introduced to the sport in the early 1970s and it has been a source of huge enjoyment ever since.

"Now, through my involvement with the Jockey Club, I have a chance to give something back. I'm grateful for the opportunity."

He takes up his new role at Sandown at this weekend's bet365 Jumps Finale fixture, joining the racecourse committee under the chairmanship of Mike Street.

Jockey Club senior steward Nicholas Wrigley said: "I should like to welcome Jeff on behalf of the Jockey Club. He has been one of the nation's most revered business journalists over the last 35 years and a passionate racing fan.

"We are delighted Jeff has agreed to join us at Sandown Park to help in our mission to act for the long-term good of British racing."
