Motorsport Executive Expands To Open Two New U.S. Offices; Collier, McLean Are Appointed Its New Regional Directors

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., Nov. 29 - Ivor Goodwin, chief executive officer of Motorsport Executive, the global motorsport executive search consultancy, is pleased to announce the openings of two new offices to serve America's two biggest motorsport centers: Indianapolis, Ind. and Charlotte, N.C.

The new offices in Speedway, Ind., and Davidson, N.C. support the British company's United States headquarters in Laguna Hills, Calif., and expand its focus into the American market.

Although confidentiality is fundamental to its work, the company's executives have matched top professionals with Formula 1 and other European teams for 10 years, working at the highest manufacturer levels.

The company was established under the Motorsport Executive name in 1999. Now it is bringing the same top-quality executive search methodologies it has used so successfully in Europe to the United States motorsport arena, where it will provide directors and senior executives in team management, design, manufacturing, engineering and other disciplines.

In conjunction with the two new office openings, Goodwin also announced the appointment of two new regional directors for the company: Mike Collier and Ed McLean.

Collier, well known as the team manager of Bradley Motorsports' former Indy Racing League IndyCar team, is in charge of the Indianapolis office. He served as a consultant to the Indy Racing League for the last six years.

McLean, a 22-year veteran of the Pontiac division of General Motors, guides the North Carolina office. McLean was part of the team that reintroduced "factory racing" to NASCAR, NHRA, IHRA, IMSA and SCCA road racing during his time at Pontiac. He also founded the North Carolina Motor Sports Association, an industry trade association.
