RMG brings on board two non-executive directors

Racecourse Media Group has appointed Jim Mullen and Britt Boeskov as independent non-executive directors, it said today (Wednesday).

Mullen was previously group chief executive of the Ladbrokes Coral Group, while Boeskov is chief experience officer at gaming company Kindred.

RMG said the appointments will enable its board to better understand challenges faced by the gaming industry and provide strategic advice.

The body is the umbrella organisation for the 34 racecourses that hold an interest in Racing TV, Racing TV International and Racecourse Data Company.
