He is also a member and Past Chairman of the SEMA Manufacturers Rep. Network. Joel continues to work diligently to protect consumers' rights in the Auto Care Industry. A purveyor of outstanding customer service, building strong relationships, and working hard for our suppliers and customers we serve, Joel instills this in all GTAteam associates. Our Company goals exemplify this as the GTAteam goes the extra mile with Exceeding All Expectations and having fun doing it. In his spare time, you may find Joel…working, and maybe at the Lake of the Ozarks captaining the SS Priorities II, spending time with his beautiful family, and traveling to visit his extended friends and family in Uganda.
