The Board of Directors for the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) met in Miami, Fla. to discuss the association’s strategic initiatives for 2018 and beyond. The board also elected two new members: Mark Wagner, President and CEO, Club Car LLC, and Joseph C. Wright, President and CEO, Excel Industries. “Growth and engagement are the watchwords of OPEI this year,” says Kris Kiser, President and CEO of OPEI.
The final plans for OPEI’s new headquarters building at 1605 King Street in Alexandria, Va. also were finalized at the meeting with the grand opening and ribbon cutting set for Monday, May 7. Both OPEI’s Handheld Products and Engines and Fuels committees will be meeting that week in the new conference center.
