Bill Lyons rejoins Mitsubishi Fuso Truck as vp-sales operations

Nov. 13, 2014

Bill Lyons is returning to Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (MFTA) as vice president of sales operations. Lyons, who spent 20 years with MFTA starting in 1986, is replaced Mike Rumsey, who is leaving the company to pursue a management position with a truck dealership.

“Mike Rumsey has served us well over the past 16 years. His knowledge, experience and dedication have been of tremendous benefit to our dealers and our customers. He will be missed. Fortunately, we have been able to facilitate the return of Bill Lyons to MFTA to take over the sales operations duties. Bill is a high-energy individual with great insight into all aspects of our business. He will be a real asset,” said Todd Bloom, president and CEO.

When Lyons left MFTA in June 2008, he was the company’s director, select sales and vehicle distribution. For the past six years, Lyons has been with ARI, Inc. as their manager of fleet management client services.

“I’m looking forward to rejoining my colleagues at Mitsubishi Fuso,” Lyons said. “And I’m excited about our future. Mike Rumsey has put us in a strong position for success, and I appreciate his hard work, dedication and leadership. I intend to keep up that same tradition as we move into the future.”
