SEMA: What is the best advice you have ever received?

Danny Agosta: Fish where the fish are.

SEMA: What keeps you in the industry?

DA: Cars and friends. I don’t think I’ll ever leave.

SEMA: Where can you be found on a Saturday?

DA: Out and about with my wife and two kids. Nowadays we’ll take any reason to get out of the house!

SEMA: How do you prepare for an important meeting?

DA: Excited for the end! What I mean is I’m anxious to get to whatever action items come out of it.

SEMA: If you could go to lunch with one industry leader, living or dead, who it would be?

DA: John Menzler. I've heard so many wonderful stories from so many people (including many in my company), and I unfortunately never had the chance to meet him. But to leave that kind of impression on such a variety of people, he must know a thing or two about life.
