The focus is on coast-to-coast interaction with customers.
DETROIT -- General Motors Fleet and Commercial Operations added to its field sales team in order to continue to focus on helping commercial customers find solutions to their business needs. Jim Campbell, general manager of General Motors Fleet and Commercial Operations, announced the appointment of additional fleet account executives. Paul Wiest was appointed as the GM Fleet Account Executive covering Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Raymond Anrecio was appointed as the Fleet Account Executive covering Miami, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Ray will also bring expertise in helping companies that have fleet needs in Latin America.
“The increase in the number of GM Fleet Account Executives is an example of our commitment to providing a coast-to-coast team of fleet professionals that are ready to help companies assess and meet their fleet needs with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles,” said Campbell.
In addition, Campbell announced some other transitions in the fleet account team. “A few treasured commercial sales team members that our customers have come to value over the years have recently retired. We will miss Charles Harkless, Sarah Jensen and Ernie Albers,” said Campbell. “We value relationships with our customers. With that in mind we have selected new team members that I am confident our customers will enjoy getting to know and do business with in the years to come. D.J. Walls, Mike Comparoni and Scott Conway are welcome additions to the team.”
Also, 24 fleet professionals were appointed in the field to focus on helping state, city and municipal customers meet their fleet needs with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.
This new role, district sales manager – commercial and government, will enable greater focus and bring expertise and counsel to dealers from both the commercial perspective and the state and local government perspective.
“Our district sales managers will provide support to our state and local government customers and the GM dealers who work hard to earn their business,” Campbell said. “We have grown our state and local government team from seven account managers to 24 commercial and government district sales managers. We firmly believe these changes will help us provide better support for our customers.”
GM Fleet and Commercial continues to have the largest dealer network in the automotive industry with coverage in metro areas, hub towns and rural communities in order to serve fleet customers. Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers offer a broad portfolio of vehicles that range from cars and crossovers to vans and pickups with leading fuel economy ratings in many vehicle segments.
