Recognizing their valued contributions, Kendra Frye and Alex Guilbeault have been promoted within their respective departments. New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials announced today that Frye has been promoted to Sales and Marketing Coordinator, while Guilbeault moves into the Assistant Operations Manager position.
In her new role, Frye will be responsible for all aspects of sales support, including trafficking and scheduling of all key sponsorship signage, such as track wall decals, billboards and grandstand banners.
Frye will serve as an official liaison with speedway partners, AMI Graphics (Stratham, N.H.) and Decal Source (Charlotte, N.C.). Continuing to assist all sales account executives in her sales role, Frye will also now assist new Director of Marketing Chris Lockwood with marketing material production and scheduling, while also serving as the main conduit for New Hampshire Motor Speedway Pace Car and Sprint Cup Show Car movement.
"Kendra brings a quiet energy to the speedway team, which is something I've noticed right away in my short time here," said Lockwood. "Her top-notch organization skills are a tremendous asset to our sales and marketing teams. We couldn't ask for a more focused and driven person to fill this position."
Frye, 25, joined the speedway as a sales and marketing intern in the summer of 2010 before being hired as a ticket account representative in the spring of 2011. Frye then quickly advanced, earning a position in the sales department as an account planner in the spring of 2012, a position she's held for the last two years.
Frye was born and raised in Moultonborough, N.H. She received her B.A. in Sports Management from St. Joseph's College (Standish, Maine) in 2011.
Guilbeault, 23, joined the speedway in the spring of 2010, starting as a season worker in the operations department. He was most recently the speedway's operations coordinator. In his new role, Guilbeault will focus on day-to-day operations of the track rental program and working with sanctioning bodies in preparation and execution of their events.
Guilbeault not only works at the speedway, but is an active and decorated member of the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) Pro Series, Championship Cup Series (CCS) and American Sportbike Racing Association.
"Alex will be a great asset to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He literally grew up here watching his dad race motorcycles, and as soon as he could race one he was among the ranks of the Loudon Road Race Series," said Tom Blanchette, director of operations at the speedway. "Motorcycle road racing has a long history at this property and Alex and his family have been a part of the history, which is an inspiration and motivation for him to work hard to continue to grow and build all forms of motorsports at New England's largest sporting and entertainment venue. We look forward to having him as a member of our team. With his experience as a young fan and as a fierce competitor he will certainly help us make the guest and competitor experience here at the Magic Mile the best in the Northeast."
Guilbeault was born and raised in Litchfield, N.H. He graduated with a B.S. Management and Business Administration: Marketing from the University of New Hampshire in May of 2013.
