Cat reorganizes truck engine department

MOSSVILLE, Ill. — Caterpillar says it has strengthened both its management and sales coverage thanks to a new corporate structure and a new name: the Caterpillar On-Highway Engine Division.

Caterpillar has appointed two managers Larry Dicks and Steve Brown to head up the company’s field operations division, which has been split into east and west divisions to bring decision-making even closer to the customer. To serve the company’s many customer segments which range from owner/operators to mega fleets, as well as enhance coverage of truck dealer needs, the division also has added a number of new field representative positions.

In addition, Chuck Avery has been appointed to manage the newly formed Bus and Specialty Vehicle Group within the On-Highway Engine Division. This group is dedicated to selling and supporting engines in buses, RVs, fire and emergency trucks, and other specialty vehicles.

“With new technology for meeting ever-stricter emissions regulations on the horizon, it’s important to continue providing the hands-on, one-to-one service that users and truck dealers are accustomed to receiving from Cat,” says Sarah Anderson, general manager, Caterpillar On-Highway Engine Division.

“In a changing industry, all of our customers need more comprehensive support than ever before. Caterpillar has always provided personal field support, and we will continue to do so in the future.”
