Azusa, CA - - (August 7, 2007)  Gale Banks has announced that  Doug Stokes has joined the staff at Banks Power in Azusa in the position of  Corporate Publicist. 

“We’re very pleased to have Doug coming on board with us, I’ve known him for many years now and have always admired his work with the press and public,”  said company President Gale Banks.  “We’re very much looking forward to his being on staff here.  Stokes’ wide background in motoring and motorsports is a great plus, and his enthusiasm is contagious.”

“Gale Banks both as a person and as a ‘brand’ is another word for class in my book,”  Stokes commented,  “The products that he designs and manufactures are not just good, not just OK … but the very best.  And Gale the person is the same.  I’m excited about my new task of getting the word out about the products, but even more so because I’ll be working with the great team of top people that he’s assembled.”

Stokes will interface with all forms of the media in his new post as well as providing content for a number of websites that deal with the different services offered by Banks’ company.  “One of my main objectives will be to present and promote Gale himself as an on-air and in-print authority on a number of automotive subjects, foremost among them the intense interest in clean, renewable, diesel power, and other high-performance disciplines that are environmentally friendly,” Stokes explained. 

“I want news organizations across the country to know that we have a ‘GEARHEAD’ president who lives hot cars and trucks, but who lives in the real world too.  Gale Banks is an outstanding spokesperson for the new high performance movement that can be fun and earth-friendly at the same time!”

Stokes’ own resume includes some 30 years as a professional in PR/Marketing field working with organizations such as the International Kart Federation, the Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group, Perris Auto Speedway, the Chevy-Geo Outdoors Program, Suzuki Racing, and, most recently Irwindale Speedway.
