I count it an honor and a privilege to have been nominated for this SEMA Board position. I look forward to serving in any capacity where my time, talents and 36 years of industry experience can be of use.
I am asking for your vote to be re-elected to the SEMA Board of Directors to help see through some of the initiatives that were started during my first term. Several of these, such as the Data Pool and SEMA Education Institute, will directly affect the rep and the companies they sell to and work for.
Seventeen industry professionals are vying for a position on the 2010–2012 SEMA Board of Directors. The SEMA Board provides strategic direction to the association and plays a critical role in shaping the future of the automotive specialty-equipment industry. Ballots were sent to the primary contacts at eligible SEMA-member companies within the corresponding categories at the beginning of May and are due back by June 11, 2010.
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 nearly 20 years ago and have had an active role in growing a small company into a large one.
It is an honor to be chosen as a candidate for the SEMA Board of Directors. I have been involved with the automobile aftermarket industry for more than 42 years. My passion is to help grow our industry. I feel we need to increase the size of the pie so that we all get a bigger piece. We need to create excitement focused in and around our business.
