Inglis has announced Peter Heagney will step down as its Victorian Manager on June 30.
Heagney will make way for Simon Vivian but will continue to serve the company as a Director and Auctioneer and will be very active at all Inglis sales and major events.
“Peter has been a great servant of the company and it’s been a great privilege working with him,” Inglis CEO Mark Webster said. “He will continue to assist with the selection of yearlings and mentor junior members of our bloodstock team, and we will all still enjoy hearing his rousing calls to gather around our sale auditoriums in Sydney and Melbourne.”
Vivian joined Inglis 11 years ago as a bloodstock consultant and auctioneer. “Simon is a great people person and a great thinker,” Webster said. “He likes to challenge the norm and is constantly looks for better ways to do business. A recent example was the introduction of the Blue Riband session as part of our Premier Yearling Sale and it’s been very successful.”
Replacing Vivian as the Senior Bloodstock Consultant in Victoria will be James Price who will return to his hometown of Melbourne. He joined Inglis as an intern nine years ago before moving to Sydney.
