Bob Enright has been named president of Union City, IN.-based Autocar LLC - the owner of the Xpeditor line, which it acquired last month from Volvo Trucks North America Inc.
"I am honored to lead a company whose name is associated with historic achievements in the truck industry, and I will work to see that we uphold the heritage of quality, innovation and performance," Enright said.
During his four years as president of Western Star Trucks Inc., Enright lead the company in garnering J.D. Power and Associates' No. 1 ranking in the class 8 truck category for customer satisfaction.
Enright will look to increase sales of Xpeditor trucks, which primarily serve the refuse collection industry, through a simple business strategy: focus on providing products needed by customers.
"Bob brings an appreciation for trucks and tremendous business and operations knowledge,” said Andrew Taitz, chairman of Grand Vehicle Works Holdings LLC (GVW), Autocar's parent company. “Because he can communicate effectively with the people who buy trucks and the people who make them, he'll ensure that Autocar delivers solutions for its customers.”
