Vice President of Operations
As VP of Operations, Jon Giles is responsible for providing direction and oversight for all aspects related to the successful operation of the Roush Yates Performance Engines Group division, which is charged with the execution of all road racing engine programs, as well as commercial engine applications for Roush Yates Engines.
A 25 year veteran of the motorsports industry, Giles started with the Robert Yates organization in 2002 when he was hired as Special Projects Manager for Robert Yates Racing Engines.
