  • About Rod Shegem

    Rod Shegem is an executive professional with over a decade of leadership experience.


    After emigrating to the United States, he began to work his way up in the field, starting out as a local mechanic. His passion for racing and motorsports drove him to seek out more opportunities, and he eventually became a Research and Development Manager at Saleen, an American manufacturer of specialty sports cars and automotive parts. He served as Director of Production until 2010.
