Bill Harley (pictured, top), president and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), will retire after 12 years with the group. His successor will be Kris Kiser (pictured, bottom), who formerly served as OPEI's executive vice president and COO.

"The last 12 years with OPEI have been a remarkable time," Harley said. "I leave with great pride in our collective accomplishments and the certainty that my successor, Kris Kiser, will not only build on those accomplishments, but also lead the organization to new heights. I look forward to new and interesting experiences and challenges ahead."

Kiser is an attorney and a long-time veteran of Capitol Hill, having served as aide to international affairs expert and former Congressman Lee H. Hamilton. He is a highly regarded fuels expert and strong voice in the ethanol fuel debate. Kiser has served as the chief advocate for the outdoor power equipment industry before the U.S. Congress and Administration on a range of issues related to fuels, emissions, manufacturing, environment, and water.

"Kris Kiser brings over 18 years of experience in working with associations, including four years with OPEI," said Jean Hlay, OPEI Board Chair. "Kris has a tremendous amount of passion for the outdoor products industry, including its challenges, and has earned a reputation as a trusted and respected leader. Kris will continue to further enhance OPEI's leadership position."

Harley added, "The Board of Directors would like to thank Bill Harley for his leadership over the past 12 years. He has been instrumental in growing our international tradeshow, among his many other contributions. Bill has added a tremendous amount of value to the association. We wish Bill the very best in his retirement."
