Medina, OH: Sisson & Banyas, Attorneys at Law LLC., a leading patent/trademark firm, announces Jeffrey Banyas has been included in the Specialty Equipment Market Association’s 2018 “35 Under 35” list naming the young business leaders of tomorrow.
SEMA’s yearly list honors the up and coming leaders in the automotive aftermarket sector including those who are already making their mark with innovative ideas and bright visions of the future within the industry.
Banyas, a 2010 graduate of the University of Akron School of Law, has been with the Sisson firm for almost eight years. As a Patent and Trademark Attorney, he advises customers on all aspects of their intellectual assets.
A former racecar driver, Banyas has always had a deep connection and passion for auto racing and is touched by the prestigious selection.
“Receiving this recognition from SEMA is a huge honor,” Banyas said. “The high performance and automotive aftermarkets have been a life-long passion for me. I love having the opportunity to serve all of our customers, but it takes on extra meaning when I can work with customers in an industry that is near and dear to my heart.”
Honorees must be nominated by their peers, and SEMA searches in all industry segments for worthy recipients. Traits like entrepreneurship, commitment, innovation, insight, integrity, responsibility, involvement and overall success within the marketplace determine who is selected by SEMA.
“To have the industry’s largest trade association recognize me as one of their emerging young leaders reinforces my personal commitment to our customers, the firm, and the automotive aftermarket in general,” said Banyas.
Working with a firm like Sisson & Banyas, Attorneys at Law has given Banyas the opportunity to make a name for himself in the automotive aftermarket industry. The firm has a strong reputation for its commitment and understanding of its customers’ intellectual property needs and his colleagues recognize Banyas’ impactful efforts.
“The firm hires for passion and trains for skill. Over the past eight years Jeffrey has demonstrated the wisdom of that practice time and time again,” said Edwin A. Sisson, owner of the firm.
“This award is a testimony to the passion Jeffrey puts into his work and how he treats his customers. He has clearly earned the respect, not only of his customers but the industry. I can hardly wait to see what he does in the next few years.”
Banyas said he is encouraged and inspired daily by his loving family and knows he owes a big part of this honor to them as well as his firm for their continued commitment to his work.
“I cannot thank Ed Sisson, our Firm, my family, and especially my wife Julianne enough for their encouragement and support. Without it, I would not be able to provide the high level of care to our customers that is needed to receive such an award.”
