Does Our Industry Have Five Years Left?

A Few Words With John Waraniak

John Waraniak, SEMA’s vice president of vehicle technology, has tinkered
with machines and building fast toys since he was a kid growing up in
Detroit. Waraniak is equally at home in an aerospace skunkworks in Pico
Rivera, California, a boardroom in Mumbai, India, on a motocross track
in Buchanan, Michigan, or on the Vehicle Technology Center stage at the
SEMA Show in Las Vegas. His love for racing, performance and systems
engineering have led him to master’s degrees at the University of
Illinois and Caltech as well as executive careers in the stealth
aircraft, automotive racing and action sports industries. He was
eventually recruited as SEMA’s “chief engineer” in May 2006.
