Kerry Graeber, Marketing Director
Kerry Graeber not only brings over two decades of experience in the motorcycle industry, but also a lifetime of riding. Graeber honed his business skills in the highly charged ad agency world where a keen eye for marketing prepared him for his first motorcycle job at American Suzuki Motor Corp. First joining Suzuki in the advertising department, he quickly rose to the position of Associate Director of Brand Marketing & Advertising.
Following more than a decade at Suzuki, Kerry directed his talents to the industry's race sanctioning arena, and became Vice President of Communications at AMA Pro Racing, growing awareness of AMA's professional racing properties.
A Southern California native who grew up riding at Saddleback, Osteen's, and many of the other bygone riding areas of the region, Kerry earned an Advertising Degree from California State University, Fullerton. Given his broad industry background and deep marketing skills, Graeber is a natural fit at Marketplace Events where he and his teammates are working hard to ensure that AIMExpo adds real and lasting value to the motorcycle industry, while creating a new and highly-charged experience for motorcycle enthusiasts.
