CATA names new marketing manager

September 22, 2017
Jim OBrill joined the Chicago Automobile Trade Association Sept. 19 as the CATA’s new marketing director. 
He will oversee marketing for the nation’s largest auto show and serve as the primary contact for show sponsors. He also will help with association-related marketing and advertising efforts and work closely with CATA members.
"We’re thrilled to have Jim join the CATA to collaborate with our established team on marketing and sponsorship efforts," said David Sloan, president of the CATA and general manager of the Chicago Auto Show.
"We constantly strive to offer a superior experience to auto show attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and association members and, with Jim’s strong background, we look forward to the innovative thinking and fresh ideas that he most certainly will bring to the table."
OBrill’s 15-plus years of experience include everything from banking to agency work to radio promotions. Most recently, he was a senior account manager at Mosaic North America, which is a leader in producing consumer events and retail visits that help brands connect with consumers in non-traditional ways. Previously, he was a sales promotion manager for Hubbard Broadcasting, which owns 43 radio stations, including WDRV-FM in Chicago.
