Our comprehensive cover feature focuses on the Business of Auto Racing and specifically a dynamic burgeoning relationship on the IndyCar circuit between Chip Ganassi Racing and NTT Data, which is making huge strides in expanding its brand into North America. We speak directly with one of NTT Data’s senior executives Jeff Womack along with Steve Lauletta, President of Chip Ganassi Racing and also the driver of the car himself, Ryan Briscoe of Australia. With CBJ being at the recent Honda Indy Toronto, it was a direct opportunity to see how this team chemistry all comes together in a way that is beneficial for both sides.
Economics expert Tina Kremmidas tackles the topic of how central banks invest in equities as foreign exchange reserves continue to expand. It’s estimated as many as 40 different world banks are now investing in one form or another and that number is expected to rise.
Ned Leiby discusses Canadian companies doing business in the U.S. and what you don’t know about multistate taxes could wind up costing you. It’s definitely worth a read for those with business connections south of the border.
