LISLE, IL — Navistar International Corp. has lured a 20-year veteran of the parent company to rivals Peterbilt and Kenworth.

Jeff Sass has been named senior vice president, North America truck sales and marketing, for the Illinois-based truck and engine maker.

This follows a 20-year career at Paccar Inc., where he most recently served as national sales manager for Paccar Parts.

“Jeff is an experienced and respected leader in the industry and has a strong track record in developing new business, generating sales and supporting customers in the North American truck industry,” said Bill Kozek, president, Navistar Truck and Parts. “I have known Jeff for many years, having worked together at Paccar, and I know he’ll bring new insights, high energy and excellent leadership to our International Truck sales and marketing team.”

The 47 year old will report to Kozek and serve on the company’s senior leadership team.

Sass holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and communications from the University of Oregon and an MBA from Seattle University.
