Olivier Delloye is set to leave his role as Managing Director of France Galop and return to Arqana as Chairman of the Management Board, where he will succeed Éric Hoyeau, Arqana announced on Friday.

He will be supported by Freddy Powell, currently employed as the Executive Director but who will become the Managing Director, and by the members of the Executive Committee, including Ludovic Cornuel (Bloodstock Director), Arthur Serres (Technical Director), Sylvain Gosselin (Financial Director), Agathe Capdepon (Communication & Marketing Director) and the rest of the teams. Éric Hoyeau will become the Senior Advisor to the Management Committee of Arqana Holding.

Delloye said of his appointment, “I am thrilled and honoured to be joining Arqana once again, a company in which I spent 10 outstanding years before taking up as Managing Director of France Galop.

“I am very excited at the opportunity to work with such a talented and committed team. It is a privilege to rely on individuals of such high standard to develop Arqana further. The company's success reflects that of the breeders, vendors and buyers who have been working year in, year out to produce and select horses to perform at the highest level in France and overseas, on the Flat, over jumps as well as in standardbred racing.

“Arqana has contributed significantly to the international outreach of French racing and breeding and my personal commitment is to build on this momentum in the coming years to make the French racing and breeding industry ever stronger and attractive.”
