Editor’s Note: Welcome to the first of what will undoubtedly be many Meet The Team blog posts. These particular posts, which we’ll publish on the order of one or so each month, give you — our customers, and trade partners — an opportunity to get to know the dynamic staff here at CV Products. Those of you who have met us trackside or have had the pleasure to interact with our employees somewhere else already know that we’re passionate about introducing the latest technology to the racing industry. But there’s more to us than that!
To kick things off, we’d like to introduce you to Josh Powers, CV Products’ ecommerce specialist. Josh joined our team in the summer of 2006 and has held positions in the sales and purchasing departments. He presently dwells within the marketing department where he finds plenty of use for his undergraduate degree in information technology with a concentration in web development, not to mention a master’s degree in information systems.
Here’s Josh, in his own words:
CV Products: Who are you and what do you to do here at CV Products?
Josh Powers: My name is Josh Powers and I’m an Ecommerce specialist, making sure the online shopping experience here at CV Products is simple and painless for our customers. I also ensure that the content on the website is up to date by collecting and loading data and make any necessary changes to our company’s websites.
CV Products: What did you do prior to coming to work for CV Products?
Josh: Before coming here, I worked for a company called Legacy ATV ( they sold new ATV parts and accessories to a wide range of customers). There, I had responsibilities in both sales and marketing.
CV Products: What attracted to you to CV Products?
Josh: One of the main things that attracted me to CV Products was the opportunity to work for a company that is continuing to grow and make its presence known in the marketplace. CV Products is known and respected by racers throughout the world.
CV Products: When you’re not working, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Josh: I enjoy traveling and playing with my kids. Two of my favorite places to travel are the beach and the mountains. The beach provides fun and excitement for the whole family while the mountains provide plenty of sightseeing and an opportunity to relax with the family.
CV Products: What reality television should you be on and why would you win or lose?
Josh: Deadliest Catch. I like the idea of a high risk for a big payoff. I would win because I would use the highest-rated technologies available and develop my own software programs that would take into consideration the weather conditions, navigation, ocean floor topography and water temperature to go out and successfully find boatloads of the king crab.
CV Products: What’s your all-time favorite CV Products item and why?
Josh: That would have to be the Xceldyne Valves because I can see how the part is developed and manufactured from raw material to finished product. These valves provide superior performance to many different racing series throughout the world. They are designed to give racers maximum performance on the racetrack.
CV Products: What’s one thing not many people know about you?
Josh: I am huge NFL fan and I love to play Fantasy Football. My favorite football team is the Carolina Panthers.
Thanks, Josh, for being our first Meet The Teamer!
Stay tuned in the weeks and months to come to meet other members of our team here at CV Products.
