Skip Barber announced the promotion of two prominent racers to oversee the broad operations of the Skip Barber Racing School and Series.

Brett Roubinek has been elevated to the new position of Managing Director of Instructors, based in the Lakeville office. Roubinek was formerly the Chief East Coast Instructor and had been providing an increased level of management support to Chief Instructor Terry Earwood for some time. He will now report to Chief Operating Officer, Darren Marshall. Roubinek will be taking a break from his duties as a NASCAR Busch North driver to assume new responsibilities for the school's planning, budget generating, management, staffing and employee evaluation. The changes are effective immediately.

The organization also has announced that, after an extensive search process, Divina Galica has been appointed Managing Director of the Regional and National Championships.

"We felt that Divina had the best combination of passion and commitment, experience and understanding of the company and the series of any of the candidates who applied for the position," said an enthusiastic Marshall.

Galica is a former Olympian - acting as Captain of the British Ski Team in 1976 - and one of the few women ever to race in Formula One. She currently races in the Women's Global GT Series where she posted two wins this season. With Skip Barber, Galica has served as an instructor and more recently as a corporate sales account manager. Galica will report to Simon Kirkby, who maintains ultimate responsibility for the Race Series until her transition period is complete.

Additionally, Mike Rand, former track manager of Lime Rock Park, has been tapped to handle Project Management for Skip Barber's construction efforts as an outside consultant.
