SEMA’s Political Action Committee (SEMA PAC) hosted a meet-and-greet reception for Meyer Distributing President and CEO Mike Braun, who is Indiana’s Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in 2018. Braun handily won the Republican primary on May 8, defeating two current members of Congress by double-digit margins. He is running against U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in the general election on November 6, which is expected to be one of the most high-profile Senate races during the mid-term election.  

The event provided an opportunity for representatives throughout the automotive industry to hear directly from Braun, who started working for Meyer Body Company in 1981 and transitioned its business from manufacturing to distribution, forming Meyer Distributing. Over the decades that would follow, Braun has grown the business into a national distribution and logistics company with 65 locations in 38 states. In addition to his distinguished career in the automotive aftermarket, Braun has shown a commitment to public service as a member of the Jasper School Board (2004–2014) and as an Indiana State Legislator (2015–2017).
