American Motorcyclist Association announces changes to AMA Board of Directors


PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce that two candidates for two open seats on the AMA Board of Directors will appear on the ballot at the AMA business member meeting on Friday, Oct. 17, in Orlando, Fla. In addition, a third at-large member will go before the AMA membership for ratification.

Robert Pearce, vice president of operations at KTM North America, and Paul Puma, commercial leader for GE Capital Solutions' Motorsport Group, will stand for election to full, three-year terms at the business member meeting. Jeff Skeen, CEO of Affinity Development Group, has been appointed as an at-large member of the AMA Board of Directors. Ratification for Skeen's position will be sought from the AMA membership at the individual member meeting.

The AMA also announces that Cobra Motorcycle CEO Sean Hilbert has left the board to focus on new growth opportunities for his company. Pearce has been appointed to fill the seat vacated by Hilbert in the interim.

"The AMA Board of Directors is pleased that Robert, Jeff and Paul have agreed to volunteer their time and expertise to the board," said AMA Board Chair Maggie McNally-Bradshaw. "Each brings a wealth of industry and leadership experience, and we're looking forward to their contributions.

"In addition, on behalf of the board, AMA staff and our members, I want to thank Sean Hilbert for his service on the AMA Board of Directors," McNally-Bradshaw said. "We wish Sean and Cobra Motorcycle all the best."

The annual AMA member and business member meetings are part of the AMA National Convention. Held in partnership with the American International Motorcycle Expo at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 16-19, the AMA National Convention includes the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
