Graham has served on the Board since 2016, including most recently as the chairman of the Compensation Committee.

Graham also successfully built and sold three technology companies over a 12-year period, including GramTel USA Inc., a provider of managed data center and related services to mid-sized businesses, which was sold to Cincinnati Bell.
“We are pleased to name Tracy Chairman of the Board,” said Jim Gero, outgoing chairman of LCI Industries’ Board of Directors. Gero continued, “Tracy has served the Company very well over the last 5 years and will continue to further the Company’s strategic plans in this additional role as Chairman of the Board. His strong leadership skills and strategic experience with growth-oriented companies, coupled with his understanding of the data technology and cybersecurity issues facing businesses today, make him the ideal person for this role.”
