Technology Leaders Dinner

January 29, 2019
Rob Edwards, COO, Andretti Autosport
and Doug Bresnahan, CMO, Andretti Autosport

Rob Edwards brought nearly 30 years of racing experience when he joined Andretti in early 2015. Edwards is responsible for programs across all of Andretti’s racing efforts (IndyCar, Indy Lights, Formula E and Rallycross), currently totaling 12 racing teams with over 150 crew members and engineers under his direction.

American born and UK raised, Edwards boasts an educational background from both sides of the pond with a BSc in Engineering Science and Mathematics from Reading University in England, along with an MBA from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.

The motorsport roots for Edwards date back to 1986 when his racing career began as the Design Engineer at Tiga Race Cars working alongside former F1 pilot Howden Ganley. Edwards went on to serve as a race engineer, engineering manager, team manager and eventual general manager during his 16-year tenure with Walker Racing.

Through a 1994 summer internship with Bettenhausen Motorsport, Doug Bresnahan discovered his love for the motorsport industry. Now decades later, Bresnahan has come from cleaning race shops to serving as the Chief Marketing Officer for Andretti Autosport and its family of race teams.

Bresnahan spent a year selling racing insurance before joining CART’s marketing and client services team, where he worked for nearly 10 years before joining Andretti’s sales and marketing department in 2007.

The Indiana-native is a graduate of Indiana University where he studied Sports Marketing. He has put his degree to work over the past 20 years gaining expertise in race promotion, experiential marketing, contracts, sales and partner activations.
