Ocala Breeders’ Sales names new director


The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company in Florida on Friday named Tod Wojciechowski as its director of sales, effective early next year.

Wojciechowski’s previous duties with OBS included acting as a horsemen’s relations representative. He will succeed Tom Ventura, who will assume the Florida auction house’s presidency when current president Tom Chiota retires on June 30.

“We are pleased to add Tod to our management team on a permanent basis,” OBS chairman of the board Mike O’Farrell said of Wojciechowski, a Cornell University graduate. “His previous experience at OBS assures a smooth transition when Tom Ventura takes over for Tom Chiota. Tod is a good horseman with a unique combination of an Ivy League education and practical experience as both a buyer and consignor.”
