Cloutier Named 2015 Salesperson of the Year
Her surname may have changed, but for the second straight year, the recently married Whitney Cloutier has been named New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Salesperson of the Year for 2015.
Cloutier, previously Krieger, oversaw more than 60 accounts in the corporate sales department, ranging from ticket promotions to major race sponsorships. She was the driving force behind the late addition of 5-hour Energy serving as the official sponsor of the July NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the 5-hour Energy 301.
"Whitney's drive and motivation makes her an invaluable piece of our company, and winning this award for the second consecutive year is an example of that determination," said David McGrath, the speedway's vice president and general manager. "Whitney continues to not only form long-lasting relationships with her clients, but she goes above and beyond to exceed their expectations. To see those efforts come to fruition is a proud moment for me, Speedway Motorsports, Inc., and the entire New Hampshire Motor Speedway family."
A native of Loudon, N.H., Cloutier, 28, manages several of the speedway's official partnerships as well as fosters new local and national relationships in her position as senior account executive. In that role, Cloutier has demonstrated strong leadership and energy for handling key entitlements such as 5-hour Energy (NASCAR Sprint Cup Series), United Site Services (K&N Pro Series East), F.W. Webb (Whelen Modified Tour), University of Northwestern Ohio (Camping World Truck Series), Sunoco (official victory lane sponsor), and Bond Auto Parts (American-Canadian Tour).
Cloutier began her tenure at the speedway as a suite host in 2009. She rapidly ascended the corporate ladder, moving to a sales internship in the group ticket sales department by the spring of 2010. In that role, Cloutier was instrumental in setting record sales and profits, leading to a promotion in the winter of 2011 with the corporate sales team. Cloutier was named the Account Executive of the Year for 2012.
Cloutier was born in Concord, N.H. and raised in Loudon, N.H. She received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an option in Marketing from the University of New Hampshire in 2010. Cloutier recently married her husband, Charlie, in a wedding reception in Atkinson, N.H. on Nov. 28. The two reside in South Hero, Vt.
Along with a trophy and internal awards from the speedway, Cloutier was honored with a trip to Las Vegas to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony on Dec. 5.
