Nick Gramelspacher, 2012 - 2015 Board of Directors Nominee
Please consider me when casting your vote for the SEMA Board of Directors.
I look forward to bringing new ideas and identifying challenges among us to serve and grow the industry into the future. If elected, you can count on me to serve you tirelessly.
It is an honor to be nominated for the SEMA Board of Directors, and I look forward to serving the industry with your consideration and vote. My experience as national sales director at a leading warehouse distributor, solid work ethic and passion for the industry will be exercised to the fullest extent and in the best interests of the SEMA membership.
Employment Summary: Meyer Distributing 1999–Present
Starting in the shipping department in 1999, within six months I moved into the sales department with purchasing responsibilities. In 2006, I was promoted to national sales director and currently hold this position.
My tenure has been integral to growing Meyer Distributing from a single location, three-state distributor to 24 locations distributing to 40 states, while expanding the original 50 product lines to beyond 300 lines. As Meyer grows, I gain new insight on the ever- changing and growing business of aftermarket automotive accessories.
Not only do I love my job, I am an avid off-road enthusiast, owning and building multiple Jeeps and attending all Meyer-sponsored off-road and rock crawling events. My love of all motorsports is evident in the numerous IndyCar Series and NASCAR live race events I have attended, which spans decades. Richard Petty Racing Experience has helped foster my interest in speed and performance. I have attended more than 10 events.
