Branham Named Managing Director of Communications for GRAND-AM

Herb Branham has served as NASCAR's Director of Written Communications since 2001.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – GRAND-AM Road Racing announced today that Herb Branham has been named the sanctioning body’s Managing Director of Communications, effective immediately. Branham moves to GRAND-AM from NASCAR, where he was the Director of Written Communications.

Branham, 55, has been with NASCAR since 2001 and will retain a portion of his duties with that organization. His emphasis, though, will be with GRAND-AM, where he will report to President Tom Bledsoe.

For most of the recently completed 2010 season, Branham headed GRAND-AM’s public relations efforts in an interim role, concentrating on increasing media coverage on both the national and in-race market levels. Also, since 2009, Branham has worked on the production of the organization’s postseason awards banquets.

“Everyone at GRAND-AM is excited to have Herb come on board permanently,” GRAND-AM President Tom Bledsoe said. “He already has greatly enhanced our public relations operation, even though he’s been with us for a relatively short time this year. Herb brings a wealth of experience and relationships that will help take GRAND-AM to the next level in terms of media coverage and overall popularity.”

Prior to coming to NASCAR, Branham worked for the Tampa (Fla.) Tribune for 21 years as a reporter and editor. Much of that time was spent covering motorsports, primarily sports car racing. The first race he covered as a journalist was the 1981 Rolex 24 At Daytona.

A native of Indianapolis, Branham is a graduate of the University of South Florida in Tampa. He resides in Ormond Beach, Fla. He and his wife Catherine have four children.
