Distinguished Speaker's Luncheon Series


Friday, August 4, 2017

11:45am to 1:00pm

Mr. Barry Meguiar

President, Meguiar’s Inc.

Our Summery Speaker Series continues on August 4 when Barry Meguiar, television personality and  president of Meguiar’s Inc. shares his exciting life story.  

Meguiar’s, Inc. is a California-based company that produces some of the best-selling and performing car-care products.   Mr. Meguiar currently runs the company his grandfather Frank started in 1901 in a garage in Indiana. 

Barry served the company as a one man accounting department while he was in college.  After graduating college, Barry was in charge of the company’s largest automobile manufacturer customers.   He soon had a vision for expanding Meguiar’s market from manufacturers and auto body shops to individual consumers and car enthusiasts and led his company in this direction.

Mr. Meguiar is also credited for expanding the car hobby to our current generation.  One of the tools he used to do this was creating and broadcasting the show “Car Crazy” which had both television and radio versions.  “Car Crazy” continues to be broadcast on Discovery’s Velocity Channel.

Barry is also involved in many non-profit organizations where he shares the joy of life he has with other influencers.

Barry will tell his exciting life’s story including a victorious battle with a rare disease in 2010 that helped focus his life’s mission.    This is a great opportunity to share lunch—and your faith—with a coworker, so don’t forget to invite them.
