Jim Mulvihill, the former communications and parimutuel marketing manager at Fair Grounds in New Orleans, has been hired as the director of media and industry relations for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, the NTRA announced Monday.

Mulvihill will fill the position left open when Eric Wing resigned several months ago to take a position as the director of communications for the New York Racing Association. Mulvihill will start at the NTRA on July 15 and be based in New York, the NTRA said.

Prior to being hired at Fair Grounds in 2009, Mulvihill worked in public-relations positions for several Texas businesses, including Lone Star Park.
