Initially joining as a Non-Executive Director on 1 April 2023, Grant will go on to succeed Roger Lewis as Chairman on 1 October 2023.  

Grant has 24 years of experience in the UK and Irish gambling sector, including 14 years in senior executive roles.  

His most recent role was as CEO of Flutter UK & Ireland, which includes the Paddy Power, Sky Bet, Betfair and Tombola brands.  

Grant was promoted to this position after serving as CEO of Sky Betting & Gaming, a Flutter-owned brand.  

Grant said: “I am delighted to be joining Racecourse Media Group at such an exciting time for the business and the broader racing industry. 

“RMG has delivered outstanding results for its shareholders in recent years, and I would like to pay tribute to Roger who has done a fantastic job, along with CEO Martin Stevenson, in growing and developing the business. I look forward to working with the RMG team and continuing to deliver for all of our racecourses.” 

Non-Executive Director of the RMG Board and CEO of The Jockey Club, Nevin Truesdale, added: “I am delighted to welcome Conor to the RMG Board and to be working with him as we further develop the business for the benefit of its shareholder racecourses.  

"Conor brings significant and in-depth expertise to the industry, acquired over a long period, and this will help shape our strategies and address the challenges we are facing.” 

In September 2022, we spoke to Racecourse Media Group Director of Marketing Clive Cottrell, about attempts to bring horseracing to younger audiences.
