Transportation lessor HEC has named a president to head up its growing presence in the tractor and trailer leasing market, the Nashville (Tenn.) Business Journal reported. HEC Leasing, which specializes in tractors and trailers, will be led by David Westerfield, who has more than 25 years of experience in truck leasing and sales. Before signing on with HEC, he was co-owner of two heavy-duty dealerships in Nashville.
Westerfield will be based primarily in the company’s Nashville office at 317 Arlington Ave. HEC, which also operates an office in nearby Shelbyville, began operations about three years ago as an in-house leasing service for its sister company, Titan Transfer, a multiservice trucking company headquartered in Shelbyville. Over time, HEC has increased its equipment line, client list and services.
