Tressler is vice president of Essex Credit Corp. and has served on numerous SCMA committees.

“Richard’s role at Essex Credit Corp. and his years of volunteering with SCMA give him a great understanding of what is required for our dealers and manufacturers to secure financing and sell product in the current economic climate,” executive director Dave Geoffroy said in a statement. “I’m truly excited to have someone of Richard’s character and experience helping SCMA tackle the industry’s challenges head-on during his term.”
