The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is looking for a replacement for its executive director.
According to incoming AMTA president Dean Paisley, the current executive director, Mayne Root, will be leaving his post at the end of the year. Paisley made the announcement shortly after taking over the gavel from outgoing president Richard Warnock at the group’s Annual General Meeting, held during its 2010 Management Conference at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff.
“We’ve got some challenges ahead,” Paisley said early in his initial address as president, noting that they’re going to “put the past presidents to work” looking for someone to take over Root’s duties.
A Toronto-area International sales rep was a finalist in the recent International Truck Customer Solutions Rodeo. John White of Western Toronto International Trucks, was among six International brand truck dealer sales reps that competed in the North America-wide competition. They were tested on their knowledge of International brand trucks and Navistar’s OnCommand customer service offerings. The grand winner was Phil Johnston of Selking International in Fort Wayne, Ind.
Leading up to the final event, contestants were judged on walk-around presentations and scored on how they explained product features and their ability to relate the features to specific customer issues such as appearance, serviceability, driver acceptance and safety.
