A Proven Leader

As a business owner, distributor, car guy and second generation CEO of a family owned business, I understand the challenges we are all facing during this unprecedented time. I have fought on the front lines of our industry’s battle against counterfeit goods and changing market forces, understand what it takes to grow sales in this newly challenging environment, and know that at this critical time in history our industry needs strong leaders guiding SEMA and the industry.

At Quadratec®, we sell parts and accessories from hundreds of brands and we work with those companies daily to ensure their success. After 9/11, I worked for the Department of Homeland Security in a variety of roles including leading a pandemic task force, and after I went into to the private sector I started my own company before returning to run the family business – as a result I believe I am uniquely qualified to help our industry navigate this unprecedented time and help our members continue to prosper.


A Voice for SEMA

  • A Voice for Distributors and Retailers

    Our industry is changing fast and SEMA must be able to adapt to these changes as quickly as the changes are occurring.

  • An Advocate for American Companies

    The influx of counterfeit aftermarket products is not only the most complex issue facing SEMA but also has the largest potential impact to our businesses.

  • A Leader in Both Sectors

    My unique career path has qualified and prepared me to take on legislators at the Federal, state, and local levels.

  • Family Business, Family Values

    While I am proud of my leadership qualifications and credentials, at my core I am a father, husband, son, brother, volunteer, and passionate enthusiast who wants to give back.
