    Harness Racing NSW has appointed Peter Buckman as the replacement Chief Executive Officer for the retiring John Dumesny.

    Buckman is a dedicated professional with more than 20 years’ experience in senior roles across the energy, minerals and racing sectors.

    He specialises in and has focused his career on environment, social responsibility, governance and risk management, while holding multiple senior roles for a range of listed international companies.

    Chairman of HRNSW Ken Brown explained that the generous time given by the retiring Chief Executive had allowed for a lengthy and diligent recruitment process.

    “The board has undertaken an exhaustive process and Mr Buckman’s experience in sustainability, risk and commercial management is a vital asset in ensuring continuity for the industry in the years ahead,” he said.

    “Mr Buckman’s appointment reflects the board’s continued dedication to ensuring current and emerging risks to the business are understood and managed.”

    Buckman also brings considerable knowledge of the Harness Racing NSW business model and framework, having sat as a member of the board of HRNSW since 2018.

    Buckman cites his strong passion in ensuring that future growth is galvanised off an already robust integrity model and the continuation by the controlling body as the industry leader in all facets of the harness racing code.

    “I am excited and humbled by the opportunity provided to me by the board and I look forward to meeting with all our key stakeholders in due course,” said Buckman, who holds formal qualifications in Business, Occupational Health and Safety and Management.

    The incumbent Chief Executive Officer John Dumesny relinquishes his role effective from July 8 and until then Peter Buckman will be the Chief Executive Designate, beginning in that position in early April.
