“Denver is an important market for CarMax and partnering with the hometown Denver Broncos will allow us to provide added value to our customers and jointly drive brand awareness for both entities,” said CarMax chief marketing officer, Jim Lyski. “As a proud partner of the Denver Broncos, our focus will be to use this partnership to better serve fans by adding value to their relationship with the team.”
