I would like to strongly endorse Kim Pendergast for the 2021 SEMA board of directors. I have known Kim many years and we have partnered on numerous projects. She is competent, confident, experienced, and qualified in many areas of the automotive business. I find Kim’s operational and strategic skills exceptional. These skills are essential to protect the future of our industry in these uncertain times. That is why I urge you to join me in re-electing Kim to the 2021 SEMA board of directors.

I have known and worked with Kim Pendergast for several years and it is my pleasure to endorse her for the SEMA Board of Directors.
Myself, after serving 18 years on the SEMA Board, including 2 years as Chairman, I have seen many different “types” of board members and I know what makes the difference in a good board and a great board.
I know what capabilities, energy and (board) experience are needed, and Kim has them covered. Her industry knowledge, her tireless commitment, and her love of the industry in my conclusion, make her more than just a candidate, she needs to be sitting on the board.
Kim Pendergast has my vote.

I have known Kim since 2016. I’m impressed with what she has accomplished in her short time on the board. She transformed the mission of the scholarship committee, she was a strong and consistent supporter of SEMA garage, and strong member of the PAC Board. I know I want her on the board fighting for me and for our industry.

It is my pleasure to endorse Kim Pendergast for the SEMA Board of Directors.
I have served SEMA as Secretary Treasurer, member of the SEMA Board, ongoing member of the Investment Committee and as a founding Board member of the SEMA Data Co-op. I consider this time to be the most challenging period in SEMA’s history. SEMA faces the effects of the pandemic, increasing political regulation, public attitude changes stemming from climate change, other environmental issues, changing consumer buying patterns, rapidly changing demographics and a growing concern about SEMA’s ability to provide value to its members.
We will need experienced and forward-thinking executives on the Board to successfully meet these challenges. Kim Pendergast is such a person. I have known and worked with Kim for over 40 years. I have seen her successfully perform in sales, operations and financial roles. Her most impressive talent is her ability to recognize and strategically react to a changing business environment.
Kim has demonstrated these skills as CEO and owner of Magnuson Superchargers as well as an incumbent member of SEMA’s Board. I have had the opportunity to work with many large as well as small companies in 48 years of work experience, including MSD, Dynojet, Edge, Superchips and others in our industry. It is hard to find superior operational and strategic skills in one executive. But that is what Kim has and is why she is the right person to return to the SEMA Board in this uncertain time for our industry.
I urge you to re-elect Kim to the SEMA Board.
Daniel Gresham, Former SEMA Board Member, Former SEMA Secretary Treasurer, Current SEMA Investment Committee, Founding Board Member of the SEMA Data Co-op
I would like to endorse Kim Pendergast for SEMA Board of Directors. My husband, Jerry, and I decided to put our company up for sale 10 years ago. We wanted the prospective buyer to take a real interest in the product and the employees. Kim has proven to be a worthy choice and has not disappointed us in any way. She has continued to be involved with SEMA from day one. Also, she has demonstrated leadership qualities, worked relentlessly and achieved amazing goals. Kim kept the Magnuson name and tradition alive over these past 10 years facilitating an admirable work ethic…and also has become a very special friend.
Please vote for Kim for the SEMA board of directors.
Maureen Magnuson, Former Owner of Magnuson Products
Passionate. Driven. Visionary. Just a few descriptors of the Kim Pendergast I have had the joy of knowing since she entered the industry 15 years ago. Her 25+ years of owning various manufacturing companies, understanding domestic & international logistics channels, and now owning Ventura, CA based Magnuson Superchargers, a 40-year SEMA member manufacturer, makes her an ideal candidate for the upcoming manufacturer seat on the SEMA BOD.
As the Magnuson Supercharger owner/CEO, she has led the company through the CARB process, grown a long-term Toyota award winning relationship, and became the supercharger provider for GM’s COPO Camaro, adding depth to the value she can bring to the SEMA BOD table.
In these uncertain times, I want you to know Kim Pendergast is representing our industry, the one I have dedicated my entire life to. Our industry needs, we need, her strategic and operational skills. I urge you to re-elect Kim Pendergast to the 2021 Board of Directors.
