AMHA Executive Director Departing to Accept New Position



American Morgan Horse Association, Inc. (AMHA) President Jeffrey Gove announced that he has accepted the resignation of AMHA Executive Director Julie Broadway, effective June 3, 2016. Broadway has accepted a new leadership position within the equine industry that will be announced shortly.

Gove stated, “We are sad to see Julie depart after nine years with AMHA, but are beyond thrilled for her in her new position. Julie has made tremendous contributions to AMHA and we’ve experienced some great accomplishments during her tenure. I also want to thank Julie for her leadership during the upcoming transition.”

The AMHA Board of Directors has appointed Molly O’Brien as Interim Executive Director while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement. Gove added, “Based on Julie’s recommendation, we are pleased to have Molly at the helm during this transition.”

O’Brien will join AMHA on April 18 and spend approximately six weeks with Broadway getting up to speed. O’Brien’s previous experience includes leadership positions at AMHA, International Arabian Horse Association, Turley Publications and most recently W. F. Young/Absorbine. In addition, she co-chaired the New England Morgan Horse Show Committee for 10 years, and has managed the Massachusetts Morgan Horse Show since 2008. 

 

The AMHA Executive Committee will serve as the Executive Director Search Committee; a job description will be made available shortly.
