New Jersey Grand Prix Appoint Tom Cotter & Dennis Robinson

January 17, 2012

With the New Jersey Grand Prix ready to make its Formula 1 debut next year, organisers have appointed the key men responsible for leading the project.

Tom Cotter, previously head of successful motorsport marketing agency the Cotter Group, will assume the position of President, while former New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority CEO Dennis Robinson will work alongside him as Chief Operations Officer.

Cotter, who recently sold his firm to Cleat Channel Communications in 2011, enthusiastically stated: “Only a world-class opportunity like this could divert me from my bucket list. The chance to make racing history doesn’t come along often.”

New Jersey’s race promoter and director Leo Hindery Jr. added: “It is vital that we have a leadership team that is highly respected in motorsports, and in running major sporting events in the region, and that understands and respects our overriding responsibilities to the fans, the people of New York and New Jersey, the teams and the drivers. Tom Cotter and Dennis Robinson are the best possible choices to fill these roles.”
