Hulman & Company President and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Belskus will retire from the company effective early in 2015. Belskus began his 27-year career with Hulman's affiliate, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in 1987.

"We're so very grateful for all Jeff has done over these many years, and we wish him all the best in the future. He's always been willing to step into any role to help us be successful and has made countless, lasting contributions," said Mari Hulman George, chairman of the board of Hulman & Company.

Belskus has served in many roles with Hulman, IMS and other affiliates during his long career. He is best known for his four years as president and chief executive officer of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In addition, he served as CEO of Hulman & Company, CEO of the Verizon IndyCar Series and, previously, more than 20 years as the company's executive vice president and chief financial officer.

"With Jeff's leadership we have achieved the growth phase we are in now. I particularly have enjoyed and benefited from the opportunity to work closely with Jeff over the last couple of years, and I'm very thankful for Jeff's thoughtfulness in planning this transition. We will miss his daily presence, but look forward to seeing him at the track in the future," said Mark Miles, Hulman & Company CEO.

"I'm extremely appreciative to the Hulman-George family and the entire Hulman Board for all of the opportunities they have provided me over these many years. I'm proud of our multiple accomplishments over my 27 years with IMS and Hulman & Company," said Belskus. "I'm looking forward to the next chapter in my life and career."
