Tim Martin, SEMA chair-elect.
Tim Martin from K&N Engineering has been elected SEMA’s chairman-elect, and will help the SEMA Board of Directors lead the association for the 2017–2019 term. Martin fills the position held for the past two years by Wade Kawasaki of the Coker Group, who will begin serving his term as chairman in July. James Lawrence from Power Automedia was also voted onto the SEMA Board of Directors, and Greg Adler from Transamerican Auto Parts was re-elected, and will serve another term.
SEMA Board members are industry representatives who volunteer their time to lead and guide the association. They are elected by all SEMA-member companies and represent the key membership categories: manufacturers, distributors/retailers, manufacturers’ reps, and services.
The entire 2017-2018 SEMA Board of Directors will be honored and recognized during the SEMA Installation Gala in July. At the same time, current SEMA Immediate Past-Chair/Secretary Nate Shelton will conclude his volunteer term and be honored for his service and contributions. The event will also feature a special tribute to the 2017 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees: GiGi Carleton, Doug Evans and Barry Meguiar.
