As part of Performance Racing Industry’s (PRI) commitment to increase engagement and support for the racing industry, the organization has launched a search for two executive positions, including the new position of President to be based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.
With a focus on building, promoting and protecting the motorsports industry, PRI’s president will oversee the strategic vision, leadership and executive management of all PRI initiatives. Based in Indianapolis, what many consider to be the center of the racing industry, the president will work closely with racing-related businesses, as well as individual racers, race teams, racing facilities, sanctioning bodies, and parts suppliers to develop programs and services to benefit the motorsports community.
In addition to the president in Indianapolis, PRI will hire a general manager in Southern California who will be responsible for the daily operations of PRI’s Trade Show, magazine and online media content. Bill Miller, the current general manager, will continue to support the PRI team while focusing on his responsibilities as senior vice president of operations for SEMA, which has owned and operated Performance Racing Industry since 2012.
“Having dedicated executives leading PRI will ensure that the needs of racing-related businesses and racers are met,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “The motorsports industry is a unique community filled with passion, innovation and enthusiasm. We’re looking for individuals who share that passion as PRI looks to enhance the resources and programs for the industry.”
Successful candidates will have proven leadership skills and a strong work ethic, and be motivated to serve the motorsports industry.
