Jonathan Meade is new SIMI President

Jonathan Meade, Director of Hutton & Meade Dublin, was elected president of the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI) at the organisation’s recent AGM held in Killashee Hotel, Naas, Co Kildare, writes Trish Whelan

Mr Meade has worked for 43 years in the motor industry. 

In his acceptance speech, Mr Meade highlighted the significance of investing in people and technology as this will help to drive the motor industry and the electrification project forward. He added that for the industry and its wider membership, the electrification of the national fleet is one of the industry’s biggest challenges and one of its biggest opportunities. 

He said the Government must maintain the incentives and supports which encourage customers in making the switch to EVs and reassure them in their purchase choice.
