Tim Naylor, who joined the British Horseracing Authority permanently as Head of Regulation in March of 2017, has been appointed as the new Director of Integrity and Regulation, the BHA announced on Wednesday. Naylor 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. Previously a barrister at QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers in London, Naylor was instructed by the BHA on a number of Disciplinary Panel and Licensing Committee cases from 2013 onwards.
“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,” said Naylor, who, reports to Chief Regulatory Officer Brant Dunshea and is part of the BHA Executive Team.
“Tim was appointed after a competitive application process which drew in some highly qualified individuals with a wide range of experience,” said Dunshea. “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.”
