SEMA Show, Day One: Ludwig honored as 'Friend of Industry'
Tire industry analyst and long-time Modern Tire Dealer columnist Saul Ludwig received the Tire Industry Association's Friend of the Industry Award earlier today during the association's Breakfast with the President event at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SMEA) Show.
"The most important reason I'm here is my connection to the independent tire dealer," Ludwig said upon acceptance.
"The one person I owe the most to is the late Bernie Kovach (Modern Tire Dealer's former publisher). He was the best and I really appreciate what Bernie did for me."
The 2007 SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas. Nev., began today.
