Director of Sales and Business Development
Jim Sweener is the Director of Sales for Internet Brands Automotive Classifieds, a group of websites dedicated to helping automotive racing & performance enthusiasts connect to buy, sell, trade, and in general participate in the addiction that is bei
ng a gearhead.
Jim’s decade-long tenure with the company began in the summer of 2009 after a chance meeting between he, his classic Firebird Formula, and a few of the executives of the group’s flagship website, RacingJunk.com. Recognized as a true automotive enthusiast by his colleagues and clients, as a Sales Representative Jim was responsible for the advertising campaigns of such industry stalwarts as Holley, Edelbrock, MAHLE, Heidt’s, Strange Engineering, and Rick Jones Race Cars, and was promoted to Director of Sales in January of 2016.
Using his lifetime of obsession with muscle cars, hot rods, and off road trucks to make a hobby into a career, Jim leads the Sales, Marketing, and Business Development teams in identifying opportunities and creating campaigns for connecting the companies that manufacture high performance vehicles and parts with an enthusiastic audience of fellow gearheads. In fact, Jim is not only the Director, he’s also a member, having bought and sold several cars and dozens of parts on the group’s websites over the years (including the same street/strip Nova a couple of times).
When not on the road attending races or car shows for the company, Jim can be found…at races and car shows with his own vehicles including a 1954 Chevy 210. Built in tribute to the first car he and his father worked on together over 30 years ago while he was still in grade school (a Pueblo Tan & Ivory two-tone 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air) the 54 is the only one of Jim’s many cars that is NOT for sale.
