LeMans Appoints Paul Langley as New Chairman

Fred Fox founded LeMans in the basement of his house in 1967 and since then has dedicated his life to building LeMans into a leading global powersports distribution company with 1,100 + employees and eight warehouses. 

Indeed, Fred's drive and determination has done much to shape the parts and accessory aftermarket we have today, and his leadership and the team he has built have made major contributions to the businesses his company buys from and sells to.
However, on reaching 85 years of age, Fred has decided to slow down a little in the new role of Chairman Emeritus. Paul Langley has been named Chairman of LeMans.
"I have enjoyed a strong partnership with LeMans for the past twenty plus years and know that LeMans is one of the most successful and well managed companies in our industry," said Paul. "I am honored to serve as Chairman, which is a privilege I must earn each day forward.
"There will be a steep learning curve, new problems to solve, and I look forward to working with familiar and new faces in our electrifying industry. Having Fred close by affords me the benefit of tapping into his wisdom on a regular basis."
LeMans is the parent company of Parts Unlimited, Drag Specialties, Parts Canada and Parts Europe.  Paul is no stranger to senior powersports industry management roles, having successfully served in leadership roles with S&S Cycle, Vance & Hines and Dynojet.
