ARC Appoints Executive GM of Racing and Operations
The Auckland Racing Club has announced the appointment of Craig Baker to the role of Executive GM of Racing and Operations, reports NZ Racing Desk. Baker has vast experience in racing administration over a long period of time and more recently was Operations Manager for Westbury Stud. Cameron George, CEO of the ARC said: "We are delighted to have been able to secure Craig, who demonstrates extensive racing experience in the NZ industry. He also brings to the business a vast array of administrative skills which will have long term benefits for the ARC. With Andrew "Butch" Castles moving on it was always going to be hard to fill the racing knowledge and other attributes he possesses but with Craig coming into the role he certainly brings the appropriate experience and skills to help bridge that gap." Baker commences his duties with the ARC on 24 August.
