Our Member of the Month is Associate Member Showky Kaldawy, President of Mondial Automotive Inc. located in Flushing, NY. He was born in 1972 in Flushing and raised in Great Neck, NY. Showky graduated from St. Mary's High School in Manhasset, NY in 1990 and graduated from Fairfield University in 1994 with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics with a minor in Political Science. Showky is single and currently resides in Manhattan.

Showky states he is the Chef, cook and bottle washer and is involved in every aspect of the company. His daily responsibilities involve purchasing, sales, production, Human Resources and planned expansion. He is proud to announce that the company is moving into a state of the art, 30,000 square foot facility in College Point during the first quarter of 2007.

Involved in many athletic sports, Showky won a National Championship in high school and he was the captain of his college hockey team. He is an avid Tri-athlete and was an Iron Man finisher in 2005 and a member of the USA Triathlon honorable mention in 2005 and 2006. He also qualified for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in 2006 and 2007, qualified for the Olympic Distance World Championships in Honolulu in 2005 and he qualified for the 2006 World Championships in the Half Iron Man Distance competition.

Showky works closely with the Tender Loving Care Organization, a group that is very close to his heart. The organization was started by two of his close friends after their child suffered a stroke at birth. As a result of his work with the organization, Showky was honored with a Citation and Humanitarian Award in 2005. He is also a supporter and was actively involved in helping Coast to Coast, A Run for Survivorship, an organization who raises funds for cancer survivors.

Showky attributes his success to his father, Showky Kaldawy Sr. who started Mondial Automotive Inc. in 1956. He states that his father is his mentor, friend and the best role model anyone could ask for. Without his guidance, Showky would not be the man he is today.

An Associate Member of the Society since 2004, Showky has been a very big supporter of all the Society's major events and we are proud to have him as a member.
