Well-respected and widely-experienced horseman Marc Devcich has been appointed to the role of General Manager at Cambridge Stud.
Devcich has been involved in the thoroughbred industry since his school days and has previously worked at Highview Stud, Windsor Park Stud and Mapperley Stud in various roles.
In Australia, he has enjoyed stints at Segenhoe Stud and Widden Stud and in the United States at Dixiana Farm in Kentucky where a highlight was foaling down the future Epsom Derby winner Benny The Dip.
Devcich, 47, will take up his role on June 15, leaving nearby Henley Park, a successful agistment and sale preparation operation, in the capable hands of his wife Sarah.
"It's exciting and a real privilege to be General Manager at Cambridge Stud. It's an iconic farm and a world-renowned nursery, I'm really looking forward to the challenge," Devcich said.
"I'm delighted and really looking forward to working with such a dedicated and passionate team of people."
Chief Executive Henry Plumptre said Devcich was a great fit for Cambridge Stud.
"I have known Marc and Sarah for 25 years and they are a quality couple. Marc is exactly the right person for Cambridge Stud.
"He has a great reputation and the experience we need. He has run a successful business himself and understands the fundamentals of running a stud farm properly."
