Keith Ottesen will succeed Richard Osgood as clerk of the course at Newbury.
Osgood leaves his post at the end of the year and Ottesen, who is currently clerk at Chepstow and Ffos Las, will shadow Osgood for the remaining 2018 fixtures.
"It is a really exciting time to be joining Newbury Racecourse," said Ottesen.
"As the redevelopment takes shape, I am looking forward to focusing on further developing its race programme to attract the best horses available.
"Newbury is leading the way for the owners, trainers and racing staff experience and I look forward to making a positive contribution to achieving the highest industry standards."
