Justyn Amstutz, formerly with National Powersport Auctions, has joined Advanstar's Powersports Group as senior consultant to the Dealer Expo and Progressive International Motorcycle Shows.
“Justyn’s experience in growing businesses in the powersports industry will be a major asset to Advanstar,” said Executive Vice President Danny Phillips. “He knows how to respond to customer needs and firmly believes in our product platforms and the opportunities they provide to riders, dealers, manufacturers and distributors in order to achieve growth in the industry.
"Justyn’s business development, sales and marketing expertise will play an important role in the expansion of the International Motorcycle Shows and Dealer Expo," Phillips added. "As we continue to grow, we want to add executives who are experienced in event development, customer service and who bring creative vision. Justyn is a proven winner.”
Effective immediately, Amstutz will consult on product strategy and customer development for the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows and Dealer Expo, and will report directly to Phillips.
“I believe Advanstar's strategy of expanding the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows into new markets as well as the addition of new, high-profile event components to the tour, is just the beginning,” said Amstutz. "Advanstar's databases, product platforms and visitor assets are unmatched in powersports, and we have exciting plans for the continued expansion of OEM participation with Advanstar's consumer platforms and a large-scale growth plan for Dealer Expo. I’m excited to be a part of the most innovative media team in the powersports industry.”
Amstutz most recently was partner and executive vice president of National Powersport Auctions. He previously held several positions with Cycle Express, including vice president of sales and marketing.
Advanstar is the parent company of Dealernews.
