Executive Transactions

Chip Ganassi Racing VP/Business Development DAN GRIFFIS has taken a new job at Target as Dir of Strategic Sponsorship & Events. His last day at Ganassi is Friday. The Target job will see Griffis working on the company's sponsorships with Chip Ganassi Racing, Target Field, Target Center, the Vikings and action sports athletes ranging from snowboarder SHAUN WHITE to freestyle motocross rider NATE ADAMS. Griffis said, "It's a little bittersweet. Nine years is a long time in one place, but I've been working with Target for that long, too. They're sharp from top to bottom and it couldn't be a better fit for me." Ganassi Racing plans to fill Griffis' vacated position (Tripp Mickle, SportsBusiness Journal).
