(AP) INDIANAPOLIS - Mark Miles has been named chief executive officer of Hulman & Co, which counts Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the IndyCar Series among its business entities.
Miles most recently led the city of Indianapolis’ successful Super Bowl effort. He replaces Jeff Belskus, who will remain president of Hulman & Co. and continue as CEO of the speedway.
Belskus is also currently acting as interim CEO of IndyCar since the Oct. 28 ouster of Randy Bernard. The series and Hulman & Co. board of directors has been under public scrutiny for its messy handling of the split with Bernard, who was popular among fans.
Miles joined the Hulman & Co. board in March. He previously led the Pan-American Games in 1987 and spent 15 years as CEO of the ATP Tour.
