Great Dane Trailers announced that Dave Durand has been promoted to vice president of aftermarket parts from his current role as aftermarket parts director. Durand will continue to oversee the PDC and parts activities associated with the Savannah, Ga.-based company’s branch operations.
Since January 2006 when Durand joined the company, his experience in the parts industry and his managerial skills have proven to be an asset both at the PDC and to Great Dane in general. He has 25 years experience in aftermarket parts, five of which have been Great Dane. He began his career in the trailer industry with Timpte Trailers in Denver. After spending a few years with Transwest Trailers, he moved onto Aurora Parts and Accessories.
“With this solid background and his proven performance at Great Dane, I am confident that the improvements we have experienced at the PDC and our branch operations will continue to strengthen Great Dane’s aftermarket presence,” says Jim Pines, executive vice president for Great Dane.
