Tim Watts, 2012 - 2015 Board of Directors Nominee
As a true automotive enthusiast, I have been fortunate to make a career out of something I am truly passionate about. I am currently the vice president of sales and marketing for Superlift Suspension Systems. I began my career with Superlift over 20 years ago and have had an active role in growing a small company into a large one. Over the years I have been involved in every facet of operations, with most of my efforts focused on sales and servicing accounts. Hands-on involvement at all levels – manufacturing, distribution and retail – provides me invaluable insight into the challenges our industry faces, and what role SEMA can realistically serve in addressing them.
Finishing my second term as a SEMA Board Member, I am active in the Light Truck Accessory Alliance (LTAA) and serve as the Board Liaison for YEN. I have served on the YEN Select Committee, Advanstar’s Off-Road Advisory Council, twice on the SEMA Nominating Committee, DATA Co-op Evaluation Task Force, DATA Co-op Focus Group, DATA Co-op Oversight Task Force, WD of the Year Task Force, and SEMA Person of the Year Task Force. I am currently on the SEMA Show Committee, Suspension Task Force, Electronic Stability Control Work Group, Marketing Task Force, and chair the SEMA – Clemson CU ICAR Task Force.
I offer “real world” experience and insight, an exceptional work ethic, plus I understand that SEMA exists for one reason: to serve its membership. It is an honor to again be considered for the Board, and I greatly appreciate your vote and the opportunity to continue to serve our industry.
If re-elected I will continue to amplify the voice of the SEMA member and work tirelessly on what I consider to be our most important issues:
• Emerging Vehicle Technologies.
• Business Technology.
• Increasing Member Benefits.
• Potential Legislative Threats.
Feel free to contact me at any time to discuss these issues and opportunities. 318-397-3000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
