Fred Fox steps aside as LeMans Chairman; former S&S Cycle president Langley named

In 1967, Fred Fox founded LeMans in the basement of his house and has worked tirelessly to build LeMans into a leading global powersports distribution company with 1,100-plus employees and eight warehouses.

On reaching 85 years of age, Fox has decided to slow down a little in the new role of Chairman Emeritus.

Paul Langley has been named Chairman of LeMans, having successfully served in leadership roles with S&S Cycle, Vance & Hines and Dynojet.

“I have enjoyed a strong partnership with LeMans for the past 20-plus years and know that LeMans is one of the most successful and well managed companies in our industry,” Langley said. “I am honored to serve as Chairman, which is a privilege I must earn each day forward. There will be a steep learning curve, new problems to solve and I look forward to working with familiar and new faces in our electrifying industry. Having Fred close by affords me the benefit of tapping into his wisdom on a regular basis.”

LeMans is the parent company of Parts Unlimited, Drag Specialties, Parts Canada and Parts Europe.
