Terri Mazur Joins HISA Board Of Directors

Today, the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) announced that Terri Mazur, Esq. has been selected to join HISA's Board of Directors. Mazur will replace Ellen McClain, who will step down from her position to fulfill increasing professional obligations.

As determined by Congress, HISA's Board of Directors consists of nine individuals, five from outside of the equine industry (independent directors), and four selected to represent various equine constituencies (industry directors). Mazur will fill one of the independent director seats on the Board.

“Terri's legal and business expertise, as well as her life-long commitment to horses make her a natural fit for HISA's Board,” said HISA Board of Directors Chair Charles Scheeler. “We thank Ellen for her considerable contributions to HISA, and I look forward to working with Terri as we seek to expand on the critical work HISA is doing to protect horses and riders.”

Mazur is an experienced trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience across the federal securities and financial services industry. She previously served as Partner at Mayer Brown LLP and Arnold Porter Kaye Scholer LLP, and was most recently a Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, LLP. Mazur is the Immediate Past Chair of the New York State Bar Association's (NYSBA) Women in Law Section, serves on the Executive Committee of NYSBA's Antitrust Section and the Task Force on Racism, Social Equity and the Law, and sits on the Antitrust and Trade Regulation Committee of the New York City Bar Association.

“I am honored to have been appointed to the Board by this outstanding group of independent and industry experts,” said Mazur. “As a life-long competitive equestrian who has owned retired Thoroughbred racehorses, I have a deep concern for the health and wellbeing of racehorses. It is a privilege to be part of HISA's work to make racing safer for horses, and to make Thoroughbred racing fair and clean.”

Mazur is an avid equestrian and has a long history in show jumping at both the intercollegiate level and in the junior and adult amateur jumper divisions on the national level. She will replace Ellen McClain, who is stepping down from her position on HISA's Board of Directors due to increasing professional responsibilities.

“It has been a great honor to support the formation of HISA and the important work being done to ensure the long-term success of Thoroughbred racing,” said McClain. “I have no doubt that HISA will continue to thrive under the leadership of my fellow Board members, Lisa, and the strong, dedicated team she has assembled.”
