Jason Showers, Boxer product manager at Morbark, LLC, has been elected the newest member of TCIA’s Board of Directors. He will be the Associate Member representative on the Board, taking the place of Arborwear’s Bill Weber, who has served in that position the last six years. Weber’s term ends and Showers will be sworn in during ceremonies at Winter Management Conference this month in Puerto Rico.
While the rest of TCIA’s Board members are from commercial tree care companies and represent the association’s tree care members, TCIA associate members are those companies that provide products and services that support the industry.
Showers works at Morbark’s headquarters in Winn, Michigan. He has been involved in the tree care industry for 18 years. He has served in several different roles throughout his 18 years with Morbark. “My main focus over the past 10 years has been ‘Special Projects.’ Special Projects has entailed building programs to a point for others to take over,” says Showers.
He was also Tree Care Products (TCP) sales manager. “I was also the company’s first product manager, which entailed working with engineering, sales and our customer base to develop new products or improve existing products.”
