EVANNEX® is a father-and-sons family business that specializes in the sale of automotive aftermarket accessories for the Tesla Model S. Our products are made in the USA, designed by Model S owners for Model S owners. The founders are profiled below.
Roger Pressman (left) began his career as a mechanical engineer but quickly made the transition to computers and software. His background in CAD and computer-based manufacturing have been invaluable as he worked to turn the idea of a Center Console Insert into an actual product. Many of the products we carry are designed by Roger. Roger is author of Getting Ready for Model 3. He was also editor Owning Model S by Nick Howe. In addition, Roger created and teaches the entire curriculum for Electric Vehicle University. And, he's also a contributor on Tesla Motors [NASDAQ: TSLA] related pieces on Seeking Alpha. Roger also currently serves on the Board of Directors for Florida Tesla Enthusiasts club. Roger owns a very early signature Tesla Model S (VIN# 000184) and Tesla Model X.
Over the years, Roger has been an engineer, a programmer, a manager, a project manager, a professor, and the principal of an internationally recognized software engineering consulting firm. He has developed and marketed a variety of software engineering products to major companies worldwide. He is also the author of seven technical books and two novels. An avid sports enthusiast, Roger was a NTRP 4.5 tennis player until his back decided he had to give up the game. He is now a humble 8-handicap golfer, but hasn’t had much time on the course recently.
Matt Pressman (middle) began his career in magazines, working at Details, Men’s Fitness, and, Quincy Jones’ Vibe Magazine. He later moved on to become Vice President of Cornerstone Promotion and Fader Magazine.
