Chairman’s Message: Welcome to our new President!
The board executed the nomination and election process and I am very pleased to announce that Dwight Strayer has been elected and installed as SIA President.
Dear SIA Members,
I would like to make an announcement that would have normally been communicated at the Global Executive Summit had it occurred March.
For the past 2 years I have served as both President and Chairman of the SIA Board per an amendment to the by-laws by the board regarding term limits. The rationale at the time was we had a lot of things in motion regarding strategy and growth initiatives for the Association. I am very appreciative to the board for their confidence. The time has now arrived where the correct thing is to pass the torch to a new President with thoughts, points of view and ideas to maintain a vibrant Association.
The board executed the nomination and election process and I am very pleased to announce that Dwight Strayer has been elected and installed as SIA President. Dwight is one of the most highly respected service executives globally. His accomplishments go beyond his many operational successes and into the areas of culture building and leading by example. He is a key senior executive at Service Express and has made significant contributions as an SIA board member. The Association under his leadership along with a strong board will continue to build value for our members and continue to grow.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Ron Alvesteffer, his executive team, and the Service Express board of directors for supporting Dwight and enabling him to give the time needed for this role as it is not insignificant.
I will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board and hope to devote time to strategy and development of new ideas to bring continued value to the SIA membership.
Please join me in welcoming Dwight!!
