Davies, Morrey Named to Tattersalls Board

Tattersalls has appointed Gavin Davies and John Morrey to its board.

European bloodstock auctioneer Tattersalls has made two new board appointments with Gavin Davies and John Morrey joining the Tattersalls board as bloodstock sales director and Park Paddocks and property director, respectively.

Davies, 41, joined the Tattersalls bloodstock sales team in 2000, becoming manager in 2005. He succeeds former bloodstock sales director Martin Mitchell who retired in 2011.

"It was always a pleasure working with Martin Mitchell and he is a hard act to follow, but I am thrilled to have been appointed to the Tattersalls board," Davies said. "We enjoyed a very successful 2012 and I am enormously looking forward to the new role and to the challenges ahead."

Morrey, 40, has been property manager since joining the Newmarket-based auctioneer in 2002, having previously worked in London for Grosvenor Estate for five years.

"I am delighted to be joining the Tattersalls board as Park Paddocks and property director," Morrey said. "Everyone at Tattersalls takes enormous pride in the Park Paddocks sales complex and it is a privilege to be entrusted with the task of maintaining the high standards that are synonymous with the company name."
