NPDA Completes 1st Board Member Election   

Six incumbents were reelected, and a new member joins the board

The inaugural board election for the National Powersports Dealer Association (NPDA) took place March 4-8, and the members have spoken: The six incumbents running for reelection all held their seats for another two years.

Of the seven spots that were available, the remaining one has been filled by a dealer with extensive ties to the powersports industry.

There were a total of eight outside candidates vying for position on the NPDA Board, which totals 15 members.

As stated in the NPDA bylaws, only dealers with current “Basic” level membership were eligible to vote. “Affiliate” members (those dealerships associated with a “Basic” membership) were not eligible.

Re-elected to terms that end Dec. 31, 2025 are the first six dealers below:

  • Bob Althoff, Farrow Harley-Davidson, Ohio
  • Bob Kee, Destination Cycle, Texas
  • Kim Harrison, Coleman Powersports, Virginia
  • George Gatto, Three Rivers Harley-Davidson & Gatto Cycle Shop, Pennsylvania
  • Mark Peterson, Southwest Superbikes, Texas
  • Gail Worth, Gail’s Powersports, Missouri
  • Jayson Davis, Powersports of Greenville, South Carolina, was elected to his first term.

“I know every Board Member feels as I do: It is an honor to do the work we do on behalf of dealers everywhere,” said Bob Althoff, NPDA board chairman. “Retail excellence, sustainable profitability and industry growth — our focus is unwavering.”

Since its founding in May 2021, the NPDA has grown to more than 400 powersports dealer members from all 50 states plus Puerto Rico.
