Jay Frye has been named President of IndyCar as part of Hulman & Company organizational changes announced today by Mark Miles, President and CEO of the parent company.
Frye, who has led IndyCar’s Competition and Operations departments since November 2015, will add Marketing and Communications to his responsibilities, effective Jan. 1. Miles will continue as CEO.
Frye joined Hulman & Company, which owns IndyCar and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in 2013 as Chief Revenue Officer, leading the combined team of IndyCar and IMS in sponsorship sales, licensing and account services. Mark Sibla, IndyCar Chief of Staff, Competition and Operations, will similarly expand his role with the Indianapolis-based sanctioning body, becoming Chief of Staff of all IndyCar departments.
The reorganization is a result of the previously-announced resignation of C.J. O’Donnell, who will leave his post of Chief Marketing Officer at IndyCar and IMS, which he has held since late 2013, at the end of the year.
As a result of the changes, Curt Cavin, IndyCar Vice President, Communications, and a new role to be filled of IndyCar Vice President, Marketing, will report to Frye.
Additional organizational changes have been made at IMS, including:
• Jarrod Krisiloff will have his responsibilities expanded at IMS, becoming Vice President, Facilities and Events. He has been Executive Director, Events, for the past two years.
• Dan Skiver will become Director, Operations, and responsible for the many functions related to IMS events. Pat Garlock will be promoted to Assistant Manager, Facilities and Events.
• Alex Damron will be promoted to Senior Director, Communications, for IMS and Hulman & Company, and corporate communications will be added to his responsibilities.
