"There are only two directions you can move in business and life, forwards or backwards. If you are standing still or resisting change – you are actually going backwards as others will inevitably be going forward."
As the Managing Director of William Inglis & Son Ltd – Australasia’s leading thoroughbred auctioneers since 1867, Mark Webster has successfully combined his passion for horses and breeding thoroughbreds with his occupation, something many of us only ever dream of doing.
Having established a strong reputation for leading change, in mid 2007 Mark joined Inglis as the first non-family member to lead the company. Since then he has introduced numerous digital innovations into the organization and the equine industry at large, including live internet bidding and the creation of the highly successful Inglis Digital business unit which includes Bloodstock.com.au as well as an in-house developed equestrian trading platform, Horsezone.com.au.
He is currently preparing Inglis for the future with the development of a new $110m state of the art horse auction facility and hotel/conference centre at Warwick Farm in Sydney. He also spends considerable time developing new markets, particularly in Asia.
