With his continued development to go along with a solid background of motorsports sponsorship sales and industry relationships, Tim Renyi has been promoted to vice president of corporate sales for New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway, officially announced the promotion today.
Renyi, 35, who joined the speedway in June of 2010 as a senior account executive in the sales department, will now oversee all of the day-to-day details of the corporate and group sales departments, as well as heading the hospitality and sponsorship sales for the multi-purpose facility, which hosts two NASCAR Sprint Cup race weekends each year.
It’s the second promotion in eight months for Renyi, who was elevated to corporate sales manager back in February.
“Tim has done an exceptional job since joining us here at ‘The Magic Mile,’ ” said Gappens. “In a very short period of time, Tim has evolved into an effective leader for our corporate sales department. He is well-respected by our corporate partners and staff here at the speedway. Under his leadership, we had a significant increase in revenue and the number of new corporate partners this year.”
Prior to joining New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Renyi spent three years at Auto Club Speedway in California, selling sponsorships for NASCAR’s top three racing series.
Before joining the motorsports world, Renyi worked as the director of business development for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, an affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Although he has previous experience outside of New England, Renyi is hardly new to the East Coast. A native of Maine, Renyi spent time in Nashua, N.H., working with the Nashua Pride of the Atlantic League and at Sports and Entertainment Matters in Boston, Mass.
Renyi earned a degree in Sports Marketing and Administration from the University of Connecticut’s Neag School. He currently resides in Maine with his wife Hannah and their daughter.
In addition to the two NASCAR weekends, New Hampshire Motor Speedway hosts a variety of motorsports events, including the Vintage Racing Celebration; the oldest motorcycle event in the country, the Loudon Classic; and a variety of sports car, club racing, and numerous driving/rider schools.
