A seasoned veteran with solid experience, Stevenson was a part of RMG for nearly two decades. Back in 2020, he was appointed to the role of CEO.

Moreover, the company’s Chair added: “RMG has been a tremendous success in maximizing the commercial rights for its shareholders and generating more than £1.2bn for its racecourse members and British racing. Martin has been integral to this success.” Grant said that Stevenson would leave the company prepared for its further growth and future success. Finally, he thanked the outgoing exec on behalf of RMG’s Board for his dedication and support. Leading RMG was a privilege and honor, says Stevenson Stevenson was similarly excited and commented on the topic by saying: “I have a significant birthday approaching and I think now is the right time for me to relinquish the role and enable the business to put in place its leadership in plenty of time ahead of the next rights renewal cycle.” He said that it was an incredible privilege and honor to take such important roles with Racecourse Media Group. Moreover, Stevenson added: “The business has achieved a great deal in reclaiming control of our racecourses’ media and data rights and has created real substantial commercial success for the industry, having now delivered more than £1.2bn to the industry.” The CEO said that he will be leaving RMG “in great shape,” while ongoing plans for its development are paving the way for its bright future.
