Sir Johnny Weatherby steps down

21 June 2022

Sir Johnny Weatherby is to step down as chair of Weatherbys at the end of the month, when he will be succeeded by Martin Radvan.

Weatherby will remain on the Weatherbys board as a non-executive director. He will also continue as chair of the trustees of the Weatherbys group of companies and Weatherbys Ireland, with the company saying he would spend more time helping to oversee the group’s international ambitions.

Radvan will become the first person from outside the Weatherby family to head the company, which is primarily responsible for providing racing services to the BHA, since it was founded in 1770.

Radvan retired in 2019 as deputy group chief executive of food and drink company Mars Inc.
