“I am both thrilled and humbled to be joining the Magic Millions team, and look forward to working with and learning under the guidance of Gerry Harvey and Katie Page, as well as Barry Bowditch, Clint Donovan and all of the team,” Robinson said.
“Magic Millions has stamped itself as a leader in innovation and business excellence and I am looking forward to working with Australian breeders and vendors to continue achieving the best possible outcomes for their produce and, in turn, assist Magic Millions’ continued progression as Australia’s premier thoroughbred auction house.”
Barry Bowditch, Managing Director of Magic Millions, said Robinson was a highly credentialed and passionate industry member who would compliment the bloodstock department.
“Dane has spent a lifetime in the industry and will be an instrumental member of the team particularly in working with our clients across New South Wales,” Bowditch said.
“We are proud of the achievements and growth of Magic Millions to be the leading thoroughbred sales company in the Southern Hemisphere and think Dane’s appointment will strengthen our ties in New South Wales and drive this into the future.”
