Alastair Warwick has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Ascot Racecourse, the Berkshire racing venue announced Monday.

“I am delighted that Alastair has accepted the position of Chief Executive on a permanent basis,” Sir Francis Brooke, His Majesty’s Representative at Ascot and Chairman of Ascot Authority (Holdings) Ltd, said. “Over the last fifteen years, he has gained the leadership and strategic skills needed for this multifaceted role. He has also played a key part in developing an excellent senior management team.

“I am thrilled to be taking on the role on a permanent basis and would like to thank Francis and his fellow Trustees for the opportunity and for the trust they have placed in me. We have an amazing team. From raceday ‘Bowler Hat’ stewards through to the senior team, everyone has the same aspirations for Ascot.

“During 15 years at Ascot, I have seen some of the best racing in the world and I look forward to welcoming future champions, equine and human.”
