Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) appointed company and industry veteran Brent McKinney as its new western region technical sales manager for commercial chassis, effective immediately.
In his new role, McKinney will be responsible for sales and dealership development for the western region of the United States, as well as British Columbia in Canada, according to a company release.
McKinney brings more than 30 years of experience across dealer sales, custom and test engineering, warranty management, and aftermarket parts to his new role. Most recently, he served as national account manager for fleet part sales for Daimler Truck and western region sales representative for Alliance Parts and Detroit engines.
“Brent brings a great understanding of the western region’s dealer network and technical components of Class 4-5 commercial vehicles to this important role at FCCC,” said Greg Baker, commercial chassis product manager for FCCC. “With his experience working with dealers in the western region, Brent has a unique perspective on the expectations and requirements to be successful as our technical sales manager for the area. We look forward to having him on our team and to see how he advances FCCC’s commercial vehicle sales.”
McKinney replaces Ron Anders, who retired at the end of March following a career of more than 40 years in the industry, including nearly 30 years as technical sales manager with FCCC on both its RV and commercial sides. Among Anders’ many career highlights at FCCC are playing a pivotal role in the creation of the company’s technical sales program and original RV chassis training for end-users.
“I’m thrilled to step into this amazing role and join the outstanding commercial team at FCCC,” McKinney added. “I know well FCCC’s hard-earned reputation for innovation and excellence throughout the industry, and it’s an honor to help play a part in guiding their future growth and success.”
