Loren Snyder named ORBA Chairman of the Board

Pro Comp's Loren Snyder Elected New Chairman of the Board for ORBA

Loren Snyder, President of Pro Comp Suspension, was named as the Off-Road Business Association’s new Chairman of the Board. Snyder founded Pro Comp Suspension in 1989 and has been an active participant in the off-road industry for the past 25-plus years. Pro Comp is globally recognized as a leader in engineering, manufacturing, marketing and wholesale distribution of suspension systems, shock absorbers and accessories for light trucks, SUVs and 4x4’s. They are based in San Diego, California and operate with an employee count upwards of 200 people. Along with Pro Comp being an ORBA member, they are active with other automotive and off-road associations such as SEMA, NTEA, ASA and others.

Off-roading is a family affair and passion for the Snyder family. Loren and his wife of 24 years have raised their daughters in this sport. Taylor Nicole, Loren’s youngest daughter, races in the TrophyKart class in the CORR & MMR series. His oldest daughter Keli currently attends USC and in her spare time stays involved with the off-road industry assisting in marketing, events and publicity projects for several companies. “Along with my commitment to the business side of the sport of off-roading, I had as well originally joined up with ORBA to assure families today, as well as future generations, will have the best shot possible to continue enjoying the sport we love.” Snyder then adds, “For me, it doesn’t get any better than off-roading in the dunes, trail rides in Moab, or racing at a local track with family and friends. I look forward to continuing to work with ORBA management, my fellow board members and colleagues to assure our best chance of maintaining a strong industry and years of enjoyment to families who share in the same off-road passion.”

Rocky Trevino, of Cycle Parts West, is the outgoing Chairman of the Board. Fred Wiley, Executive Director of ORBA, commented “I would like to thank Rocky for his hard work and dedication to this organization, especially the tireless hours he put in while planning and helping run our ORBA SuperShows.”
