ProMedia Events & Publishing is pleased to announce that Jim Campisano has joined ProMedia as Director of Sales. Effective immediately, Campisano will be working closely with the ProMedia sales staff as well as Race Pages editor Mike Galimi and Fastest Street Car editor Steve Baur. As a 30-year industry veteran, early NMRA supporter and former NMCA racer, Campisano is well acquainted with ProMedia events and magazines.
“Jim will be an integral part of our future as our events continue to see double-digit growth and dramatically increased participation and fan attendance,” said ProMedia President and CEO Steve Wolcott. “He has hit the ground running and has already contacted key clients. We’re thrilled to have Campy on our sales staff.”
Campisano’s career in the automotive industry began as a copy editor in the late ‘80s after a five-year stint as a sportswriter. From there, he joined the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords team as Editor and Editorial Director where he grew the magazine into one of the largest Ford publications in the world. During his time at MMFF, Campisano realized the need for a winter Ford-only race in a warm climate and the “Fun Ford Weekend” series was born. Campisano campaigned an SVT Mustang Cobra project car in the Modular Motor class and it was this series that spawned the NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton, Florida, now in it’s 23rd year.
After 13 years with Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords, Campisano moved over to Super Chevy magazine where he spearheaded three-project car builds that were auctioned off for charity with $880,000 in proceeds going to the Armed Forces Foundation. In 2011, Campisano and his Super Chevy team were presented the Armed Forces Foundation Patriot of the Year award. Prior to joining ProMedia, Campisano worked as Editorial Director for RTM TV, producers of several automotive shows such as Engine Power, Detroit Muscle and Xtreme Off-Road.
“I’m thrilled to join ProMedia for the latest chapter in my career,” said Campisano. “I have thoroughly enjoyed racing NMCA events and have been attending NMRA races since the very first one. To be a part of this team is a dream come true. From the top on down, it is comprised of hardcore enthusiasts who are dedicated to our racers, sponsors and advertisers.”
