Director Tim Kent grew up in Gloucestershire on an estate managed by his father and was an active member of the Pony Club from an early age. Horses and the breeding of animals had always been an interest but his passion for racing began when he worked for a racehorse trainer during his gap year. After studying Animal Science at Nottingham University, which involved a six month stint in Australia where he worked for Champion Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse, Tim completed the BHA graduate program which involved working at the Levy Board and York Racecourse. Having finished university, Tim bought a Point to Pointer at Goffs UK which sparked an interest in this area of the business and he began a six month work experience placement with Goffs UK in January 2006. Tim was then offered a full time job with Goffs UK and, after spending six months working for Fasig Tipton Co in Lexington, Kentucky, he began full time in January 2007.

Tim started auctioneering in May 2007 and is a regular member of the Goffs UK inspection team whilst also looking after the marketing for Goffs UK. He was appointed to the Goffs UK Board in April 2009 and represents Goffs UK on the TBA National Hunt Committee. In June 2011, Tim relocated to Lambourn to open an office in the South of England whilst continuing the close ties with the Goffs UK team in Hawick. This appointment allows the Goffs UK team to have a greater interaction with clients in this area whilst helping to increase the number of customers who travel from the South of England to buy or sell at any of the Goffs or Goffs UK sales.

Tim's other interests include Hunting, Cycling, Skiing, Rugby and socialising.
