Mitchell 1 — a San Diego-based company that provides technical information for vehicle maintenance, service and repair — has announced that Scott DeGiorgio has been hired as general manager of the company’s newly created Commercial Vehicle Group.
DeGiorgio formerly was general manager of sales and operations for Great Dane Trailers, responsible for that company’s aftermarket parts distribution. Prior to joining Great Dane, DeGiorgio served as general manager of Grumman Olson’s service parts division and as Red Dot’s director of sales and marketing.
“Scott’s experience in the commercial vehicle service and repair market is exactly what Mitchell 1 needs to lead our new commercial vehicle group,” says Dave Ellingen, president and chief executive officer for Mitchell 1. “When we had over 700 fleets sign up for a free trial of our Tractor-Trailer.net product within the first month of its release, we knew it was time to create a new division within Mitchell 1 that clearly focused on the heavy-vehicle sector. We have great plans for the future growth of this product line, and we’re pleased to have Scott leading the way to its success.”
