SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Advanstar announced today that Tracy Harris has returned to direct the Powersports Group as its senior vice president.

Many in the industry know Harris from her long tenure with the Advanstar Powersports Group, which includes the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows, Dealernews and Dealer Expo.

Harris for the last two years had been vice president of the company's centralized operations division, which supported not only the powersports properties but also events in other industries.

"I'm excited to return to the powersports industry and have the opportunity to work with our customers and the team to create a stronger portfolio of products," Harris said. "The next 90 days will be spent meeting with customers, partners and staff to listen and learn, to make sure we are focusing on what's important."

Harris replaces Danny Phillips, former EVP of the Powersports Group, who will focus on international sales development projects in other markets for Advanstar.
