Rivas Named To Legal Team At IMS

Experienced attorney Susan Rivas has joined the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation as corporate counsel and senior director of legal affairs.

Rivas will provide legal services to IMSC and all of Hulman & Company, including INDYCAR, Clabber Girl, IMS Productions and INDYCAR Entertainment. She comes to IMS after 26 years of successful experience as an attorney, working mostly in Indianapolis.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to work for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the world’s epicenter for motor racing,” Rivas said. “As a native Hoosier, I’ve always had the greatest respect for everything that IMS means to so many fans around the world, and I greatly look forward to the challenges to come.”

Rivas has spent most of her career as a partner at Indianapolis law firm Ice Miller, where she developed the firm’s antitrust investigation, regulatory and counseling practice. At Ice Miller, she also handled a variety of domestic and international matters for corporate clients.

Rivas was employed most recently as a compliance advisor for Eli Lilly and Company in Indianapolis, where she developed compliance support for international corporate affairs functions.

In her early career, Rivas worked for DowElanco in Indianapolis and as an associate for Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Susan to our legal staff at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” said Gretchen Snelling, Indianapolis Motor Speedway vice president and general counsel. “She has a tremendous record of accomplishment throughout her career, and we’re confident that her abilities and experience will contribute greatly to our future success.”

Rivas earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees and graduated summa cum laude from the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis.
