Goffs UK Chairman Henry Beeby is the Group Chief Executive of Robert J Goff & Co plc which is the parent company of Goffs and Goffs UK (formerly Doncaster Bloodstock Sales or DBS). Henry joined DBS in 1982 and took on the expanded role at Goffs in 2007 following Goffs’ merger with DBS.

Henry has also worked for Furnace Mill Stud in England, The Irish National Stud, Coolmore and Fasig Tipton Co in New York, Florida and Kentucky.

Henry auctions at every Goffs sale at each of the seven locations in the UK and Ireland, and has wielded the gavel for countless memorable lots including Doncaster’s highest priced yearling at £380,000.

Henry represented DBS in the merger negotiations with Goffs working with Goffs Chairman Eimear Mulhern to deliver terms that appealed to both sets of shareholders whilst he also negotiated with Doncaster Council to allow DBS to construct the new Sales Complex on Leger Way.
