HAGERSTOWN, Ind. — Trucking and waste-hauling industry specialist Charlie Luper has been appointed to head up the new position of Director of Sales Services at Autocar Truck, reporting to Tom Vatter, vice president of sales and marketing.
Luper, previously regional sales manager for Autocar’s Central Region, will work out of the Hagerstown, Ind., corporate offices. His replacement in the Central Region is Wayne Grundmeier, formerly account director with Heil Environmental Industry, Ltd., and a long-time waste industry sales professional.
Appointed to head-up sales for Autocar’s Central Region in 2001, Luper previously spent 13 years with Volvo Truck in various positions ranging from cost accounting to sales application engineering. His financial and business background allowed him to successfully oversee vocational accounts totaling more than $1.3 billion in annual sales.
"We are totally dedicated to the success of our dealers and customers and Charlie’s extensive background in both truck manufacturing and waste-hauling will definitely strengthen our sales and service capabilities," said Vatter. "And, our Central Region will benefit from Wayne’s knowledge and expertise in the region along with his thorough knowledge of the waste industry and other vocational markets," he continued.
