Webb Wheel Products announced Jan. 29 that Fred Brown has been named director of fleet business development. In this newly created position, Brown will have responsibility for developing and implementing programs to identify and meet the expectations of the end user, the commercial fleet.
Webb Wheel Products, headquartered in Cullman, Ala., is a Marmon Highway Technologies company that manufactures hubs, brake drums and rotors for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, trailers and buses. “Our ultimate customer is certainly the truck fleet operator, so we are increasing our attention to their requirements by placing Fred in this important role,” says Todd Manson, vice president of sales and marketing for Webb’s Aftermarket Business Unit.
Brown — a U.S. Navy veteran who has 36 years of experience in the trucking industry — comes to Webb Wheel from the MHT group, where he held the position of director of business development for Freightliner. Prior to joining the MHT group, Brown held positions with Fontaine International, most recently managing all Freightliner business functions for the company in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Fontaine International is also a Marmon Highway Technologies company.
