New directors at Tatts

Newmarket bloodstock auctioneers Tattersalls has made two new board appointments in Gavin Davies and John Morrey as bloodstock sales director and Park Paddocks and property director respectively.

Mr Davies, 41, joined the Tattersalls bloodstock sales team in 2000, becoming manager in 2005. He succeeds former bloodstock sales director Martin Mitchell who retired in 2011. Mr Morrey, 40, has been property manager since joining the Newmarket-based auctioneers in 2002 having worked in London for Grosvenor Estate for five years.

He was one of the key campaigners in the battle to stop 1,200 homes being built on land at Newmarket’s Hatchfield Farm.
