Powersports Business announced today that Jimmy Gilligan has joined the team’s Minneapolis-based office as staff reporter. Gilligan is a 2016 graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he was sports editor of the student newspaper.
“Jimmy is a fantastic addition to the Powersports Business staff, with a writing and editing background that includes contributions to the Duluth News Tribune sports department, the Minnesota Wild’s website, The Growler Magazine and the website of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference,” said editor in chief Dave McMahon. “He’ll be writing a variety of stories and reporting on all facets of the industry for PSB. His enthusiasm for the entrepreneurial spirit of our industry will be a great fit for our brand in print, online and in person.”
In the meantime, he’ll be taking an immediate dive into the industry by covering the WPS 2019 Preseason Snow Show in Bloomington on Friday. On Monday, he’s off to the FXR Dealer Meeting at ERX Motor Park in Elk River. McMahon, meanwhile, is off to Indianapolis Friday for the Drag Specialties/Parts Unlimited Spring National Vendor Presentation Product Expo in Indianapolis.
