AmeriQuest Transportation Services, a provider of fleet management services, has recruited three new sales directors for its Supply Management Program sales team. They are responsible for helping customers take advantage of the more than 70 purchasing programs the Cherry Hill, N.J.-based company has in place with the transportation industry’s leading suppliers, according to William McCouch, vice president of business development.
Kevin Fessler handles sales in the West Region, which covers 11 Western states, including California, Colorado and Washington. He comes to AmeriQuest from Ryder Transportation Services, where he served as customer development manager.
James E. “Jim” Shea Jr. is responsible for customers in the South Central Region, which includes Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. Prior to joining AmeriQuest, he served in managerial positions with Alcoa Wheel & Transportation Products and has a 20-plus-year sales career in the transportation industry.
Robert J. “Bob” Carlucci manages the Great Lakes Region, which includes Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. He was formerly a national sales director with SKF USA Inc. and previous to that was with Dana Corp. for more than 20 years.
“The value of AmeriQuest’s business model continues to prove itself, especially in a troubled economy, and as such, we have recognized exponential growth,” McCouch says. “Our members needed support in their cost-cutting initiatives. With the addition of Kevin, Jim and Bob, we are there to help in full force now. A thorough understanding of our programs required seasoned experts who will act as each member’s personal consultant.”
