Jockey Club Appoints Three

The Jockey Club tapped three new appointments, including naming Charlie Boss as chief commercial officer. A former Disney commercial director for sports in Europe and Africa, Boss will answer to Jockey Club CEO, Nevin Truesdale. Boss joined Disney in 2018 after a stint with ESPN‘s U.K. office, where he served as head of marketing, commercial and strategy for five years. Prior to that, he spent a year working for the Rugby Football Union, according to SBC News.

The club promoted Hannah Grosvenor to national sales director. Since joining the Jockey Club, Grosvenor has worked as a sales executive, business development manager, regional sales manager and regional head of sales for the Jockey Club.

Alexandra Goldschmidt will take over as director of partnerships during Carey Weeks maternity leave. Goldschmidt worked as NFL director of partnerships in the U.K.

“These are three key commercial appointments for The Jockey Club and I’m looking forward to supporting and enjoying the success of Charlie, Alex and Hannah in the months and years ahead,” said Truesdale, who became acting CEO in December after the resignation of Delia Bushell for allegations of misconduct. “These are the latest examples of the kind of talent we are privileged to welcome and nurture within The Jockey Club, which will ensure we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic on as strong a footing as possible.”
