The Motor and Equipment Manufacturers Association president and CEO will help oversee the Hall of Fame’s financial direction.
Long will continue to serve as president and chief operating officer of the light-vehicle aftermarket division of MEMA.
The Automotive Hall of Fame opened in 1997 in a 25,000 square foot facility located next to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
Since its opening, the Hall of Fame has served as tribute to the men and women who have contributed to the motor vehicle industry.
It also educates the public’s understanding of the contribution that the motor vehicle industry has had on freedom, mobility and standard of living.
To be inducted, an individual is recognized as having made a dramatic impact on the development of the automobile or the automotive industry.
Part of this three-year term on the board, Long will help with the selection of individuals inducted into the Hall of Fame.
“It is an honor to serve on the board of an organization with such a lofty mission and worthwhile purpose for the automotive industry,” Long stated. “I look forward to representing parts manufacturers on this distinguished board and bringing our unique perspective as we work to advance these goals.”
