Jules Wortman has been named VP of Public Relations for TNA Entertainment, home of TNA Impact Wrestling. With almost two decades of experience, she operates her namesake company, Wortman Works Media & Marketing.
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, the top-rated program on Spike TV, airs in over 120 countries worldwide. It is the home to such well-known professional wrestlers as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Sting, as well as Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, and James Storm.
Wortman’s career includes time at Warner Bros. Records, and MCA Records, as well as work with CMT, Chevrolet, Sony Music, ACA Awards, Billy Ray Cyrus, Blake Shelton, Rodney Atkins, Big & Rich, and Red Light Management.
In the new role, Wortman reports to TNA President Dixie Carter. “Jules is one of the most talented PR executives in the business today,” explains Carter. “In addition to her media skills, her creativity and strategic thinking is what really sets her apart from the rest. I am so excited about the exposure I know she will bring to Impact Wrestling, our talent, as well as TNA’s other ventures.”
“I have been watching the trajectory of TNA Entertainment for several years,” adds Wortman. “I love entertainment, period. But to be involved in such a creative force coupled with extremely talented and gifted athletes, as well as a staff full of energy and the knowledge of how to grow a unique and very popular brand, is something I am ready to sink my teeth into.”
Wortman Works will remain available for special projects, with Lindsey Bynum still on board.
Wortman is involved with the T. J. Martell Foundation, Gallatin Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Middle Tennessee, and is the founder/owner of Jewelweed Design Studio and Mercantile in Gallatin, Tenn.
