Membership of the Motor Press Guild, the largest automotive media association in North America, elected new members to its board of directors this week to serve the organization through 2024 and beyond.
Two members of the board will begin new, three-year terms. Ezekiel Wheeler of eBay Motors was voted in as a new addition, and K.J. Jones of Motor Trend was confirmed to serve a second three-year term. Rebecca Lindland of Cars Commerce was appointed by the outgoing president to serve a one-year term.
The additions bring the board to nine members in total. They join James Bell of Kia America, Lisa Delaney formerly of the Motorcycle Industry Council, Jim Dvorak of Mothers, Steven Ewing of Edmunds, Sandra Muñoz of Latinaology.com and Ryan ZumMallen of Carrara Media.
The first action of the new board was to elect new officers, according to MPG bylaws. Outgoing president Jack Nerad chaired the proceedings. The board voted to approve former vice president Ryan ZumMallen as president, K.J. Jones as vice president, Jim Dvorak as treasurer and Lisa Delaney as secretary.
The board wishes to thank outgoing president Jack Nerad for his dedication to leading the organization through the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as treasurer Larry Rusznak who served dutifully as treasurer for two years.
The 2024 MPG Board looks forward to bringing meaningful events, information and value to the membership.
