The Custom Automotive Network (CAN), formerly the Performance Warehouse Association, has named its 2019 Board of Directors.
CAN chairman Andy McJannett of Performance Improvements welcomed the new board members, saying he looks forward to furthering CAN’s long-standing mission to expand and promote profitable distribution amongst all its members.
Royal Coburn, owner and general manager at TruckTech Distributing, will continue to serve on the CAN Board as the newly elected treasurer for the 2019-2020 term.
This year’s director election was held to fill the newly added four manufacturer and two partner director seats. Having served as board liaisons for the last two years, Cary Redman of Edelbrock, Mike Stickney of Westin Automotive, and Rich Butler of R&R Marketing Consultants, will serve as directors for one-year terms in 2019.
New Board members elected to serve a two year term include:
Adrian Murray, president of Painless Performance Products
Denise Waddingham, regional sales and corporate relations manager of Dee Zee, Inc.
Chris Fellows, director of internet solutions at DCi.
In November of 2018, a significant change in the board of directors composition was approved by CAN’s membership, allowing non-distributor members to be represented for the first time in the association’s 49 year history.
CAN president Tracie Nunez said this of the momentous change to the board’s composition. “The timing of this was right and ensures all CAN members the opportunity to collaborate together on demanding industry challenges,” Nunez said.
The board of directors consists of 12 elected directors: represented by six distributors, four manufacturers and two partners.
Custom Automotive Network was founded in 1970 as Performance Warehouse Association. The mission is to assist the custom automotive industry in efforts to expand, maintain and promote the profitable distribution of custom automotive products through the manufacturer, distributor, retailer and consumer channel.
