Cheltenham Racecourse announces new management appointments

Renowned sporting venue Cheltenham Racecourse has announced three senior appointments as part of a developing management restructure.

With over 25 years in the racing industry, Ian Renton brings a wealth of experience to his new role as regional director for Cheltenham Racecourse and the South West Region, The Jockey Club including Exeter, Warwick and Wincanton racecourses. Ian has an extensive understanding of unique venues: his previous role as managing director of Arena Leisure Plc., operated a successful catering division under his direction, specialising in venue and event catering.

The second appointment, Lee Moulson, joins as racing sales manager. His new role will see him take responsibility for growth of income across all racing related revenue streams, including Hospitality, for the distinguished sporting venue. Previously commercial manager at Warwick Racecourse, Lee brings an abundance of knowledge to his new team.

Assuming the role of regional head of marketing for Cheltenham and the South West, The Jockey Club, is Matthew Foxton-Duffy. Matthew will be responsible for the marketing activity across all revenue streams for The Jockey Clubs South West racecourses, developing both racing and conference and events offerings. Matthew previously worked as sales and marketing manager at Windsor Racecourse.

Ian Renton, regional director at Cheltenham Racecourse and the South West Region, The Jockey Club, said: Collaboration between the venues in our region is a key objective of the new structure, making it easier to share best practice, promote a consistent set of core values throughout the Group, increase the effectiveness of sales and marketing to customers and reduce costs. I am sure the appointments within this revised management structure will have a positive impact.

Cheltenham Racecourse is acclaimed for its top racing fixtures throughout the year, hosting one of the UKs most prominent race days, the legendary Cheltenham Gold Cup. When the course is not hosting a race meeting the venue offers a wide variety of event spaces from intimate meeting rooms to The Centaur, a 2,250 seated auditorium with state of the art lighting and sound capabilities. The venue, located only one mile from Cheltenham town centre, benefits from 300 acres of space for al fresco events, 10,000 free car parking spaces as well as free Wi-Fi throughout.
