“In for a penny, in for a pound” describes Kim’s dedication & affinity for our Industry.
I have known Kim for several years and have worked with her on business, education and
Non-Profit platforms. I have experienced firsthand how educated, accomplished and well respected a leader she is. Kim is a visionary, having built on her own, several successful companies from the ground up, she understands and is keenly aware of all levels involved to develop, be financially responsible and positively launch products to market and beyond which includes regulatory compliance.
Kim is highly perceptive and listens to the heartbeat of the SEMA members, OE partners and the legislature. She is well aware of the challenges & opportunities we each have with our businesses and is prepared to do whatever it takes to see our member companies succeed. As an industry veteran that gives of her time and serves unconditionally, not for any accolades, but solely for the future benefit of our entire industry.
On the SEMA Election Ballot this year are some popular and good candidates. Many can “talk the talk” however only a select few have the depth of experience and knowledge to “walk the walk” in order to really get things done appropriately, wisely and with discernment. Kim has proven track record that she can “walk the walk” and is more than qualified for a seat on the Board of Directors through her decades as a solid industry leader, business owner, advocate and philanthropist.
Kim is the right choice and will work tirelessly to protect our companies, our rights and our future with distinction. Please join me in casting your vote today for Kim Pendergast for the SEMA Board of Directors.
