After graduating from the Irish National Stud Course in 2017, she spent time at Arrowfield Stud in Australia. More recently, she has worked sales seasons for Chasemore Farm, Grove Stud, Castlebridge, and was a sales assistant to Anthony Stroud, as well as Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock.
Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby, “We are delighted to welcome Katharina Irmer to our top-class team of international representatives. Katharina’s impressive industry experience and enthusiasm is a great fit for Goffs and we look forward to working together to bring more new and existing German buyers to Kildare Paddocks.
“I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of Matthias Seeber over recent years and wish him continued success in his new role at Hanover Racecourse”
Irmer added, “Goffs has an unrivalled reputation for quality and customer care and I am excited to be the point of contact for all German clients. I have strong connections with many German owners, breeders and trainers and am proud to represent Goffs as we aim to grow this market.”
