NOLA Motorsports Park has announced a pivotal addition to its leadership team. Francisco (Frank) Christian, Jr. is now the CEO of the privately-owned autotainment complex and events facility.
“My job will be to rent asphalt and sell adrenaline” says Christian. “NOLA Motorsports is dedicated to providing a high-quality experience like nothing else in Louisiana, and I am excited to be part of their bright future.”
Christian is responsible for leading and directing the day-to-day operations to ensure growth and sustainability under the NOLA Motorsports Park mission. This leadership role also entails overseeing facility operations and developing a vision and long-term strategy for the unique organization.
In just a short amount of time, Christian is already securing exciting new programs. With Xtreme Xperience now being offered year-round, fans can drive exotic cars such as a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Corvette. In addition, the park is also offering NASA Racing, and Jay Howard’s Motorsports Driver Development, a driving school coached by Indycar racer and karting-pro Jay Howard.
Laney Chouest, owner of NOLA Motorsports Park, has great respect for Christian. “Our primary goal is to provide our clients with first class, innovative, and desirable spaces to help them facilitate any event they would like to host. I believe that in Frank, we now have a passionate and excited leader to guide NOLA Motorsports Park.”
Christian has more than 20 years of experience in the catering and special event industries in a vast range of hospitality environments. Prior to joining NOLA Motorsports Park, he spent the majority of his career with the Festivities Catering team at Hospitality Events in San Diego, CA, where he led the integration of two companies and implemented new technology and business processes.
