Team Penske Restructures IndyCar & IMSA Management; Clive Howell To Retire
With longtime team executive Clive Howell retiring, Team Penske has made organizational changes within the leadership structure of its IndyCar and IMSA racing programs.
Veteran motorsports race engineer Ron Ruzewski, who most recently has served as technical director, has been promoted to managing director and will report directly to team president Tim Cindric. Ruzewski will oversee Team Penske’s IndyCar program, along with the Acura Team Penske IMSA sports car operations. Ruzewski moves into the new role with Howell set to retire at the end of 2018 after 39 years of service with the organization.
Under Ruzewski, Kyle Moyer and Jon “Myron” Bouslog have both been promoted to general manager positions within the organization. Moyer will oversee Team Penske’s three full-time entries in the IndyCar Series for drivers Josef Newgarden, Simon Pagenaud and Will Power. Bouslog will lead the two full-time entries in the sports car program.
“It’s hard to imagine Team Penske without Clive Howell, as he has played such a key role in creating the culture that we refer to as the Penske Way,” said Cindric. “That said, one of our biggest strengths has been the depth we have throughout the organization. Ron, Kyle and Jon have nearly 50 years of collective experience with Team Penske. Their leadership will continue to bring continuity to our programs and we are confident in their ability to build on what has already been achieved.”
