The British Horseracing Authority on Wednesday announced that Tim Naylor has been appointed as the new Director of Integrity and Regulation.
The role will be responsible for managing the BHA’s integrity, disciplinary and compliance functions with oversight of licensing, monitoring and investigation as well as the case management of matters which go before the independent Judicial Panel.
Tim joined the BHA permanently as Head of Regulation in March 2017, having previously held that position in an interim basis. Prior to that he was a Barrister at QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers in London, where he was instructed by the BHA on a number of Disciplinary Panel and Licensing Committee cases from 2013 onwards.
Tim has already begun his role as Director of Integrity and Regulation, joining the BHA’s Executive team and reporting into Chief Regulatory Officer Brant Dunshea.
Tim Naylor said: “I’m thrilled to be taking up my new role as Director of Integrity and Regulation and am looking forward to ensuring that British Horseracing is seen as an international leader in racing integrity and ensuring the highest standards of regulation in order to build confidence within the sport.”
Brant Dunshea, Chief Regulatory Officer said: “Tim was appointed after a competitive application process which drew in some highly qualified individuals with a wide range of experience.
“Given his extensive legal career and knowledge of the BHA’s regulatory and investigative functions, he was an ideal candidate and I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”
