Gene Higdon Releases Statement Regarding His Relationship With HSGI

Yesterday, Gene Higdon called me to tell me that he would be releasing a statement regarding his decision to leave High Speed Gear Inc. I’ve personally known Gene for over 15 years and he’s always been very forthright. When he had told me a year ago that he had sold the company in order to give it some room to grow and perhaps be able to take some time away from what had become his life, I understood. He’s been hard at it since before I met him. I’d say that he will be missed, but it sounds like he’s not going away, he’s just making a change, I do wish both my friend Gene and the new owners of HSGI good luck!

Today I take the opportunity to inform you that I have am leaving High Speed Gear. My wife as previous owner and myself as Founder/past CEO, words cannot convey nor express the gratitude towards the support and patronage that this community has bestowed to HSGI. High Speed Gear has been under new management, as it was sold in September 2012. Since it’s creation in 1999, HSGI has grown beyond Becky and myself’s expectations and for personal reasons, it had come time to pass the torch. In the best interest of the company, I remained on as a consultant since the transition. My contract has expired, and it’s now time for the new HSG to fulfill it’s own destiny to create it’s values and strategy.

Again, words cannot express the the gratitude for the support and patronage. It has been an Honor to make friends in the Industry as well as most of all, it’s valued customers and outstanding Dealers. More importantly, to have the privilege to support our Troops and Civilians alike in all aspects. Needless to say, I will not be leaving the community entirely.

Sincerely,

Gene Higdon
Founder of HSGI.
