TIA Elects Six New Board Members

The newly elected directors will take office Oct. 30 during TIA’s annual membership meeting.

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has elected six new members to its Board of Directors for 2023-2024. Joining the board for three-year terms are Josephine Foley of Sullivan Tire & Automotive Service Inc., Norwell, Mass.; Glen Nicholson of Midas International L.L.C., Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.; incumbent Brandy Sielaff of Business First Solutions, Meridian, Idaho; and Craig Stevens of Big Horn Tire, Gillette, Wyo.

Two additional newly elected board members, Adam Moffatt of the Tire Dealers Association of Canada, Port Dover, Ontario, Canada, and Craig Tinklenberg of Fuller Brothers Inc., Clackamas, Ore., will serve out the remaining two-year terms of board members Russ Devens and T.J. Trum, who were elected secretary and treasurer, respectively, of the Association, in June.

The new board members were chosen from a slate of 12 candidates vying for the six open positions. Voting began in early July and ended Sept. 1.

“TIA is excited to welcome this impressive and diverse group of Board members to the Association,” said TIA CEO Richard “Dick” Gust. “We look forward to their contributions in carrying out TIA’s mission of promoting tire safety, tire technician training, serving as a government watchdog for tire dealers and the tire industry and providing educational seminars and events.”

The newly elected directors will take office on Monday, Oct. 30, 2023, during TIA’s Annual Membership Meeting preceding the opening of the Global Tire Expo/SEMA show in Las Vegas. They will join an additional 12 directors to make up the association’s 18-member board.

“We commend the Biden Administration and the USTR for their thorough review of the Section 301 China tariffs that were implemented in 2018 as a way to address China’s unfair trade practices,” said Hanvey. “We applaud our members’ efforts in reducing their reliance on sourcing from China and investing in resilient U.S. supply chains. However, we want to reiterate that tariffs continue to negatively impact our members and the automotive aftermarket industry. Many products lack manufacturing alternatives outside of China due to infrastructure issues, significant investments in tooling and the knowledge to produce a high-quality safety product.
