ZIONSVILLE, IN (December 03, 2008) - It was announced today that UPS has selected Just Marketing International (JMI) as its Global Motorsports Agency of Record. This new relationship will call on the breadth of JMI client solutions from up-front strategy, planning and through-the-line activation.
"We intend to take our motorsports sponsorship to a new level in 2009 in terms of business value," said Ron Rogowski, Director of Sponsorship for UPS. "We are developing a strategy to deepen relationships with customers, motivate employees and connect with race fans through motorsports on a global basis. Equally important, we are anticipating on-track success with our new relationship with Roush Fenway Racing and David Ragan."
