The SEMA Young Executives Network (YEN) will host Dr. Jamie Meyer, president of Performance Racing Industry (PRI), during the network’s upcoming Facebook Live Chat on January 13, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. (PST).
Meyer has a unique background. He earned a PhD in anatomy and cell biology while studying to become a medical doctor before changing careers into the industry that he is deeply passionate about. With a love for all things motorsports, Meyer joined General Motors in 2005, where he served in various roles of its performance division. Since joining PRI as president in 2020, Meyer has had to reinvent and reimagine PRI’s programs.
With a commitment to helping race tracks and businesses reopen during the pandemic, and generating awareness for motorsports manufacturers and their new products, Meyer launched the PRI Ambassador Program and the first-ever PRI Road Tour. He has inspired and led his team to unprecedented social media growth and a newly redesigned magazine.
Tune in to YEN’s Facebook Page to hear how Meyer is able to stay focused amidst the industry’s challenges, what he does to keep his team motivated, and why he remains committed to supporting the racing and performance industry.
