Kirk Dooley, USMC Ret.
“I am a Marine Officer retiring after 24 years, concluding a rich and diverse career that I will forever be grateful for. Now, I am excited to start the next chapter and look forward to continuing a track record of success by fusing a wealth of experience with new and interesting opportunities.
“My expertise spans multiple military industries as a Special Operations and Intelligence Officer. Executive-level leadership with a proven reputation in mastering complex roles amidst challenging and dynamic environments, and a talent for compressing the learning curve timeline.
Whether I embark on a path to harnessing my passion for motorsports, or simply continue to lead talented teams and organizations to great success, I am committed to carrying the same bold enthusiasm I had as a Marine into the next endeavor.”
Kirk began his new career in motorsports as the IndyCar Chief of Staff in 2015. In 2016 the Indianapolis Motor Speedway needed a Director of Event Operations and asked Kirk to take the position. During the year there are events that require as many of 2000 people to help organize the fans on site for the event.
