Nick Sargent is the SIA President who moved the business and sold its key revenue generator, the SIA Tradeshow...but he’s so much more than that. Nick came up as a race tech on the World Cup, parlayed that into a gig managing Salomon’s Olympic efforts, then it was on to Burton before taking over at the SIA. These days, Nick is navigating some challenging waters, and we talk about his key moves, the OR Show, consumer shows he’s bought, and a lot more. Industry OG Chris Licata asks the Inappropriate Questions
