Q: Tell us about your journey at Hunter Truck and in the transportation industry.

A: I have been at Hunter Truck for over 10 years as a Service Manager.I have been involved in the trucking industry since I was a young kid.  My dad drove truck and eventually he started a small family-owned trucking company.  The business ceased operations in 1991.  At that time I started working for a large fleet and was employed there for over 22 years.  I started there as a technician, moved up to a lead tech and then was the maintenance manager for over 7 years.  When that fleet ceased operations, I started my employment at Hunter.

Q: What is the best or most rewarding part of your role as Service Manager?

A: Knowing that my department has successfully helped a customer in need of assistance and that the customer had a positive experience.

Q: How would you describe your experience at Hunter Truck?

A: It has been a very humbling and learning experience.  Coming from a fleet facility to a dealership and learning about all the new technology and keeping up with all the changes from the manufacturers.

Q: Tell us about your department and the team.

A: The service department at Hunter Truck – Clearfield has been a very successful and profitable department.  I attribute that to the team that we have put together. I have a very experienced and competitive team that takes pride in their work and being successful.  We have very little employee turnover within the department whether it be techs or admin staff.
