Chester receives Australian Export Hero Award

Magic Millions’ sales director David Chester has joined an illustrious group of Australians being announced as one of seven recipients of the 2012 Australian Export Heroes Awards.

The awards, created just over ten years ago, recognise individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to building Australia’s position and performance in international trade.

Chester has seen Magic Millions grow from humble beginnings to one of the top thoroughbred auction houses in the world, achieving outstanding export results.  “The award is great recognition for the entire team at Magic Millions,” Chester said.  “We have worked hard over the years on expanding our company with an ever growing group of international clients.

“Our graduates have quickly established themselves at the highest level of racing in many countries including South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Korea, Macau and China.”

Created in 1997, the Australian Institute of Export has invited 94 of the nation’s leading exporters to join the Australian Export Heroes register.

The presentation of the awards, by NSW Governor Marie Bashir, will be made on April 16.  Past recipients of the awards have included The Wiggles, Peter Beattie, Sir Charles Court, Wolf Blass and Gina Rinehart.
