SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Ridewell Suspension’s Canadian sales manager, Gary Wasney, is retiring.


He will be replaced by Claude Sauriol, who joins Ridewell from Hendrickson International, where he served as Canadian aftermarket sales manager, the company has announced.


Wasney served as Ridewell’s Canadian rep for seven years. He launched his career in the transportation industry by driving specialized heavy-haul equipment some 40 years ago.


“Gary will really be missed at Ridewell,” said Rick Rickman, vice-president of sales. “He played a critical role in making Ridewell a recognized name in Canada and increased our market share dramatically.”


Wasney’s replacement also boasts an extensive transportation background. Sauriol has served the trucking industry for 20 years, with special expertise in managing technically-complex products, Ridewell said in a release.


“We are excited to have Claude on board. His experience in the industry and with Canada in particular will allow him to make an immediate positive contribution,” Rickman said.
