Our industry is facing issues that will have a great impact on its future. Through my 33 years working for a SEMA show exhibiting manufacturer, I understand all facets of the industry including the manufacturer and distributor/reseller relationship. It is because of this understanding that I am a recipient of the Person of the Year award by PWA. I also understand the important role of manufacturer sales representatives. The MRC recognized this fact by awarding me with their inaugural Sales Team of the Year award.  My professional experience and 25 years of SEMA volunteering gives me a unique perspective to help face these threats to our industry. I would be honored to represent you as the Chairman of the SEMA Board.

Priorities as Chairman:

·     Protect against regulations that assault our rights to modify our vehicles

·     Meeting the next generation of enthusiasts where they are at

·     Protecting and growing SEMA’s #1 asset, the SEMA Show

·     Help SEMA members navigate changing automotive technology

SEMA is the only voice speaking out for the rights of automotive enthusiasts.  As Chairman, I will ensure SEMA dedicates the necessary resources to fight the threats to our industry and to take advantage of the opportunities.
