He will oversee all marketing, public relations, communications and media operations for both the L.A. Auto Show and AutoMobility L.A.

“Dan possesses marketing and communications experience at the highest level, and he will be instrumental in helping us achieve our growth goals,” said Terri Toennies, president and chief operating officer of the L.A.
