06 January 2014

SIMON ELLEN has been reappointed chairman of Racecourse Media Group for a further four years.

Ellen joined RMG, the umbrella organisation for the 34 racecourses with interests in Racing UK, Turf TV and GBI Racing, as a director in 2010 before taking up the role of chairman.

Speaking on behalf of RMG’s non-executive directors, John Sanderson said: “We are delighted to announce Simon’s reappointment for a further four years, which reflects continuity and stability, and the high level of confidence we hold within the RMG group of companies.

“Through his excellent leadership and guidance, Simon has overseen a terrific period of growth for our business which has delivered £64 million to our racecourse shareholders in 2013 and heralded the addition of four new racecourses, including Ascot, which joins RMG in June 2014.”

Ellen said: “Together we have developed a very successful media rights business, the benefits of which are channelled directly back into racing.”
