Goffs has announced that George Stanners has re-joined the company in a client liaison and auctioning role in Ireland and the UK.
Stanners spent 17 years working with Goffs UK before taking up the position as bloodstock manager at Yorton Farm last year.
He remains a consultant to the leading breeding operation but Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby has described his delight at seeing Stanners return to the company he joined straight out of school.
Beeby said, “We are delighted George is back with us as he was always a popular and highly effective member of the team.
“His new role will see him engage with vendors and purchasers for all Goffs and Goffs UK sales, inspecting and recruiting for our portfolio of sales in Kildare, Doncaster and our specialist boutique sales at the likes of Aintree, Punchestown and Sandown, and then working with our Purchaser Attraction Teams to promote each catalogue to buyers.
“At the same time he will maintain the superb link with Dave Futter and his team at Yorton as we evolve and develop that mutually beneficial relationship.”
Beeby added: “His presence on the rostrum at every sale in Kildare and Doncaster will only enhance our exceptional panel of auctioneers as he is a world-class operator with a unique and highly effective style.”
Stanners said: “I'm pleased to return to a role with Goffs and be back on the rostrum on a more consistent basis. Being on the ground visiting breeders and trainers is something I have always enjoyed, so I look forward to assisting them both at home and at sales throughout the year.
“Alongside my Goffs commitments, I will continue to work closely with both Yorton and the Potter family as they trade both on and off their farms at Leighton, which is another aspect I relish.
“Goffs and Yorton share many mutual clients so my new Goffs role will only be complemented by my ongoing connection with Yorton.”
