CENTENNIAL, Colo. (September 11, 2002) -- The Sports Car Club of America, Inc. has announced that Doug Gill will assume the new position of Solo Technical Manager, starting full-time January 1, 2003.
An Instructor and Curriculum Coordinator of Automotive Service Technology at Southwest Tennessee Community College for the past 11 years, Gill will work closely with the Director of Solo Tasha Goodale, SCCA Technical Service Director Ken Brown and the Solo Events Board on rules and program development.
"The creation of the new Solo Technical Manager position is reflective of the tremendous growth in the Solo program over the last few years and the need to have our service level keep pace with that growth," said Goodale. "Doug brings the perfect mix of knowledge, experience, Club commitment and personal integrity to this new position, allowing us to properly service the needs of the Solo community."
Gill, 49, will report to Brown, with initial training coming from Howard Duncan, Director of Program Development, who has been filling this role on a part-time basis for the past six years.
"Doug and Ken Brown's educational backgrounds will blend well together, and will be of great value to the Club as the SCCA University concept moves forward," said Duncan.
"I'm very excited to be starting this new position," said Gill. "I look forward to bringing a level of service to the Solo membership that previously hasn't been available."
A cum laude graduate of the University of Memphis with a degree in education, Gill began autocrossing in 1971 and attended the very first ProSolo(r) event in the early 1980s. He has been involved with the National Solo program in some capacity as a driver, crew, worker or official since attending his first Solo II Nationals in 1985. He has also served as an event chairman, course designer and instructor at regional events for over 25 years.
Gill, his wife Lori and their two children will relocate from their Collierville, Tenn. home to Topeka, Kan. at the end of the year.
