Katharina Irmer Joins Goffs As German Representative

Goffs is delighted to announce the appointment of Katharina Irmer as the company’s new German representative, replacing Matthias Seeber who was recently appointed Managing Director of Hanover Racecourse.


Born and raised in Germany, Katharina’s contacts and her experience of the international bloodstock industry are perfectly suited to assisting German clients with all aspects of their visits to Goffs.  A former amateur and apprentice jockey who rode winners for numerous trainers and owners in Germany, Irmer then moved to Newmarket to work for Simon Crisford for two years.  She graduated from the world renowned Irish National Stud Course in 2017 before joining the team at Arrowfield Stud in Australia and has worked sales seasons for Chasemore Farm, Grove Stud, Castlebridge, and was sales assistant to Anthony Stroud as well as Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock. 

As a buyer herself, Irmer has purchased winners under the Renello Bloodstock banner on behalf of German clients, while she has also enjoyed pinhooking success in partnership with Jerry Horan and Dolmen Bloodstock.


Commenting on the appointment, Goffs Chief Executive Henry Beeby:

“We are delighted to welcome Katharina Irmer to our top-class team of international representatives.  Katharina’s impressive industry experience and enthusiasm is a great fit for Goffs and we look forward to working together to bring more new and existing German buyers to Kildare Paddocks.


I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of Matthias Seeber over recent years and wish him continued success in his new role at Hanover Racecourse”


Kat Irmer added:

“Goffs has an unrivalled reputation for quality, integrity and customer care and I am excited to be the point of contact for all German clients.  I have strong connections with many German owners, breeders and trainers and am proud to represent Goffs as we aim to grow this market”. 


Katharina will be in attendance at the upcoming Goffs February Sale and is available to assist with any enquiries from German buyers on katharinairmer@goffs.ie or +44 (0)77 203 80416.
