NEW Commercial Manager at Musselburgh

14 November 2011

RUGBY fan Karen Taylor has swapped sports to provide maternity cover for Sarah Montgomery as commercial manager at Musselburgh racecourse.

No stranger to the venue, Taylor hosted an outdoor event for 3,000 there as director of the Golden Oldies World Rugby Festival.

Her strong background in international sporting events includes being on the organising committee of the Sydney Olympic Games and a venue manager at the Doha Asian Games and Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

Taylor was also former events manager with Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and EventScotland.

She said: "Alot of my work has been at major events, with a strong focus on rugby, but I'm really looking forward to learning all about racing. I've been a regular visitor to Musselburgh over the last ten years and am a great admirer of the venue and what has been achieved by Sarah and the team."
