    Nick Gramelspacher, YEN Member Insights, September 2014, Automotive News, Aftermarket News

    Describe yourself in your own words.
    My name is Nicholas Gramelspacher, and I am vice president, sales and marketing, at Meyer Distributing, and a member of the SEMA Board of Directors. I have a wife, April, and son, Ajay.

    What type of education do you have?
    I have a degree in business management.

    Did you choose the aftermarket or did the aftermarket choose you?
    I chose the aftermarket-I was tinkering on and fixing up trucks in early high school and fell in love with it. We have a family business in the furniture industry, but I wanted to plow my own path to do what I love and love what I do: cars, trucks and Jeeps. That, along with working for a great company like Meyer, which has had tremendous growth, and having a hardworking team made it a great decision 16 years ago.

    What has your career path looked like?
    I started with Meyer in the shipping department and worked there for about six months before moving into sales. We were a single location, 25,000-sq.-ft. company back then, selling about 40 lines.
