MEMA announced Collin Shaw has officially assumed the role of president of MEMA’s Original Equipment Suppliers group, succeeding Julie Fream who served for 10 years in the position. Shaw’s commencement provides a continuation of leadership that ensures MEMA’s support of the supplier community’s evolution toward embracing emerging trends and strategies that will redefine the automotive supply chain’s future, the organization says. 

“Our strength lies in our collective voice and actions of all diverse members across both light- and commercial-vehicle sectors. As we welcome new supply chains, evolving technologies, and changing geographics, MEMA is committed to creating an environment where the supplier’s voice is heard and we, together, enable a profitable ecosystem,” said Bill Long, president and CEO of MEMA, The Vehicle Suppliers Association.  “We are fortunate to have Collin’s passion, energy, and vision in further advancing the business interests of the original supplier community.”

As I look forward to the future, the vision remains consistent,” said Shaw. “Myself and the MEMA OE team will remain focused on; helping suppliers navigate the significant paradigm shift in vehicle architecture due to electrification and software defined vehicles, adopting and leveraging technology such as AI, and embracing the fresh perspectives brought by new leadership demographics to drive our industry forward.”

As Shaw embarks on this journey, his message to members and employees is clear, the association says: “We are on the brink of transformative change. Your insights and feedback are invaluable as we navigate this journey together. We will continue striving to represent the automotive and transportation supply base with the dedication and excellence it deserves.”
