Russell Williams, the president of the United States Trotting Association (USTA) and chairman of Standardbred Horse Sales Co. and of Hanover Shoe Farms, and Matt Iuliano, the executive vice president and executive director of The Jockey Club, have been elected to the American Horse Council (AHC) Board of Trustees following the organization’s annual meeting and national issues forum, which was held June 11-14 in Washington D.C.
Williams replaces Michael Tanner, executive vice president of the USTA, while Iuliano was elected upon the expansion of the board of trustees from 14 to 15. Iuliano was also named treasurer of the AHC, succeeding Alex Waldrop in that role.
“Russell Williams has served as both a member and chairman of the American Horse Council board and we are grateful that he will be re-joining the board to lend us his extensive knowledge and understanding of not only the harness racing industry but the equine industry itself,” said AHC President Julie Broadway. “At the same time, we deeply appreciate the guidance and commitment Mike Tanner provided to the council.”
Williams earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Virginia, as well as a law degree from the University of Richmond. He currently serves as a trustee of the Harness Racing Museum and the Hanover Foundation for Excellence in Education. Additionally, he is a member of the U.S. Harness Writers Association.
