Locally based Just Marketing International announced Monday morning that it has signed a deal to represent NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.

JMI will help Gordon, a four-time Sprint Cup and three-time Daytona 500 champion, land endorsement deals, as well as help with contract negotiations, brand and marketing strategy, and exploring other commercial opportunities.

Financial terms of the deal were not released, but sports business experts said it was a multiyear, multimillion dollar deal.

 “With many new chapters in his career still to be written, Jeff Gordon has already established himself as one of NASCAR’s all-time greatest drivers,” said Zak Brown, founder and CEO of JMI, in a statement.  “As a businessman, he is mindful of the need to maximize his personal brand both now and in the future.”

Gordon is confident his switch to JMI will help him grow his business enterprise.

“Having previously enjoyed a productive management relationship with IMG, I’m now ready to explore new business opportunities in the current phase of my life and career,” Gordon said.  “I am impressed and excited by JMI and its extensive and growing global motorsports reach.  As I continue to grow and diversify my personal brand, I’m thrilled to have them represent those interests now and in the future.”

JMI operates six offices in four countries and manages over $300 million in annual motorsports investments. JMI’s clients include Apex-Brasil, Crown Royal, DIRECTV, Johnnie Walker, LG Electronics, SUBWAY Restaurants, UPS and Verizon Wireless, among others.

  1. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
