Several reliable sources are now reporting that interim Indycar CEO Jeff Belskus is now the CEO of Indycar, and has been replaced by Mark Miles as CEO of Hulman & Company. This anticipated move allows Belskus to devote his time to getting the Indycar Series back on its feet without having to divide his time.
This marks Belskus’ second stint as CEO of the series. He last took charge of the series after Tony George’s ouster as leader, serving as the interim CEO before Randy Bernard was hired. He has served as interim CEO since Bernard’s departure on October 28, 2012.
Belskus joined the Indianapolis Motor Speedway staff in 1987, and became treasurer in 1989. He was promoted to Vice President in 1991 and named EVP in 1994. He has also been President & CEO of Hulman & Company, owner of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as well as the Clabber Girl Baking Powder Company.
Mark Miles previously served as CEO of ATP, the Men’s professional tennis organization as well as being chairman of the 2012 Super Bowl Host Committee in Indianapolis.
CORRECTION: There was a misworking of original reports. Belskus retains his Interim CEO of Indycar and CEO of IMS titles. Miles is now CEO of Hulman & Company.
