RV appoints Stier to integrity role
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy   18 December, 2017
, (
After nearly 20 years abroad, former NSW and Hong Kong-based steward Jamie Stier will return to Australia early next year to take over the role of Racing Victoria's executive general manager of Integrity Services.

It had been mooted over the weekend that Stier would take over the prime position following the departure of former integrity chief Dayle Brown and RV confirmed the appointment on Monday morning.

"We are delighted to welcome Jamie to Racing Victoria as our new Executive General Manger, Integrity Services," said RV chief executive Giles Thompson.

"Jamie is a highly-accomplished executive who has forged a lifelong career within the thoroughbred racing industry, and has gained an international reputation as a leading integrity officer."

Stier said upon news of his appointment: "I am hugely excited to be working with Racing Victoria and look forward to building on, and enhancing, the integrity structures which are already in place to help ensure the sustainability of racing in Victoria.

"Integrity is fundamental to the success of racing from the point of view of both the participants and the fans.

"With the support of the experienced team involved across the integrity function in Victoria, the focus will be on meeting the future challenges to integrity in racing to provide the public with confidence in our sport."

Former Victoria Police Purana Taskforce member Tim Robinson will continue in his role as acting head of integrity until Stier begins in 2018, with an official commencement date still being coordinated between the parties.

Thompson said Stier's experience in a mixture of roles made him the No. 1 choice for the position.

"In the early years, he worked closely with stewards on all aspects of the industry, including the development of jockeys, licensing and trainers’ performance criteria," Thompson said.

"Since then, Jamie has furthered his experience in broader leadership roles, and has contributed significantly to the rules of racing at an international level.

"Integrity is vital to the ongoing success and health of Victorian racing. We have made great advancements in integrity over the past decade under the strong leadership of Dayle Brown and I have no doubt that we will continue to progress under Jamie’s guidance."

Stier boasts 32 years of experience in the thoroughbred racing industry. He began as a cadet stipendiary steward for the Australian Jockey Club - the predecessor to Racing NSW - and spent a total of 13 years with NSW's principal racing authority.

In 1998, he moved to the Hong Kong Jockey Club to take on the role of stipendiary steward, and five years later was promoted to chief stipendiary steward with ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the integrity of racing in Hong Kong.

During his time at the HKJC, Stier also served on committees and working groups for the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities and the Asian Racing Federation.

After leaving his full-time position at the HKJC in 2009 and assuming a consultancy role with the club, he left for London and joined the British Horseracing Authority in March 2010.

Originally appointed the BHA's Director of Raceday Operations and Regulation, Stier became chief regulatory Officer in September 2016 after taking on the management of additional integrity functions.

His role included overriding responsibility for all aspects of equine health and welfare, medical, disciplinary, compliance, integrity, regulation and stewarding.

Congratulations to Jamie on his appointment.

Commiserations to Peter Mair who was rejected for the role after he exposed himself on this forum.

Forum members will rejoice that Mair won't be posting his self centred driven agenda.....unless he tries and cons the Banana Benders next  :lol:

I would have thought most journalists would have known that the AJC was NOT the predecessor to Racing NSW.

One is/was a race club, the other a statutory body  :no:

Remember Dayle Brown former executive general manager of RV Integrity he's now deputy CEO to the CEO of Greyhound Racing NSW seems a big step down from the Sport of Kings to the dishlickers.....his new boss is a Mr Mestrov  a former CEO for Hockey NSW and National Rugby League club Gold Coast Titans.

Start date confirmed at RV for Stier

4:15pm

Jamie Stier will officially start his new role as Racing Victoria's Executive General Manager of Integrity Services on May 1.

Stier is returning to Australia after concluding his duties as the chief Regulatory Officer at the British Horseracing Authority.

"We are delighted to attract such a highly-accomplished executive in Jamie to head up our Integrity Services team and are pleased to confirm that he will commence duties with Racing Victoria on 1 May," said RV Chief Executive Giles Thompson.

"Integrity is vital to our ongoing success and it is a positive vote for Victorian racing that we have been able to attract such an internationally respected executive to lead the talented group of men and women within our Integrity Services team.

"While Jamie concludes his contract with the BHA and relocates his family to Australia, our Head of Investigations and Intelligence, Tim Robinson, will continue in the capacity of Acting Executive General Manager, Integrity Services until Jamie's commencement."

Stier, who commenced his distinguished career as a Cadet Stipendiary Steward for the Australian Jockey Club, is returning to Australia after 20 years working abroad.

In 1998 he moved from New South Wales to the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) to take on the role of Stipendiary Steward, and five years later was promoted to Chief Stipendiary Steward with responsibility for all aspects of the integrity of Hong Kong racing.

During his tenure at the HKJC, Stier also served on committees and working groups for the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) and the Asian Racing Federation.

After leaving his full-time position at the HKJC in 2009 and assuming a consultancy role with the Club, he left for London and joined the BHA in March 2010.

Originally appointed the BHA's Director of Raceday Operations and Regulation, Stier became Chief Regulatory Officer in September 2016 after taking on the management of additional integrity functions.

He's been around alright coming home to see out his twilight years in the best country in the world.....sounds like a sensible plan.

Astonishing hubris

Given the disregard of prominent Victorian participants for anything approaching respect for the integrity management team at RVL, it is astonishing hubris that another returning lost soul is paraded as the answer to industry needs and dreams.

The simple need, at RVL, is for the system in place to deliver voluntary respect and compliance with integrity objectives. It clearly does not.

.........and Aquinita has put a bus through the gap.

RV is now on a par with RQ, where many with any sense of the standing lack of integrity in its racing, simply disregards it.

The mantra of 'integrity' is what RVL trots out whenever it is made clear that it has little -- relentlessly pursuing participants that are rarely found guilty of anything more than 'disrespect' for stewards that apparently do not warrant it.

RVL protestations of 'integrity' fly in the face of its own clearly deliberate policies to inflate race fields, and the 'take' of themselves and their government and bookmaker sponsors, beyond any limits consistent with fair racing.

The new RVL board has had time to take stock -- those taking stock ask for a new, new board.
