Sean Clancy has been appointed as US agent for Irish Thoroughbred Marketing. Clancy is a former jump jockey and Eclipse Award winning journalist through his work with his family’s racing papers The Steeplechase Times and The Saratoga Special. He has a great network of contacts throughout America and he should prove a valuable asset to ITM in attracting potential buyers to Ireland. Clancy’s appointment brings to three the number of international agents working for ITM. Mark O’Hanlon continues his role in Italy, but also represents ITM in Russia, South Africa and Singapore while Jennifer Zhou co-ordinates the ever increasing ITM activity in the Chinese market. The ITM office team has been boosted by the addition of Liam Glynn, who began work last Monday. Liam is a graduate of Equine Business from NUI Maynooth, while Elaine Hatton will join ITM as General Manager on July 23rd.
