The Motorcycle Industry Council presented Roger Hagie, Kawasaki Motor Corp.’s longtime director of public and government affairs, with the 2011 MIC Chairman’s Award at the MIC Communications Symposium Oct. 27 in Carson, Calif. For the past six years, the MIC has presented the annual Chairman’s Awards to groups and individuals who have made special contributions of time, leadership and effort, to preserve, protect and promote the powersports community.
Prior to retiring this past summer, Hagie was an active member of the MIC Board of Directors, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Board of Trustees, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America Board of Trustees and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association Board of Directors. In addition to serving on these various association boards and their technical committees, Hagie also often functioned as chair, vice chair or secretary/treasurer.
“We are so thrilled to honor Roger with this award,” said MIC president and CEO Tim Buche. “I’ve had the privilege of working alongside Roger for many years, and there was no one more excited about participating in every aspect of the MIC than Roger. The positive impact that Roger has had on our industry is tremendous and I honestly cannot say enough about his professionalism, his enthusiasm and his dedication to the powersports community overall, and to the MIC in particular. We wish Roger the best and we miss him already.”
