Work Truck Solutions announced that Aaron Johnson has been tapped as CEO, effective immediately.
“I am pleased to accept the privilege of serving our customers; as always, we are grateful for their business,” said Johnson. “This transition is designed to drive our growth; it provides continuity of leadership while at the same time expanding our focus. We will more quickly deliver solutions for the significant challenges facing the industry, such as production shortages, new customer demand paths, plus the transition to EV platforms and evolving EV credit issues that dealerships face today.”
Founder Kathryn Schifferle will transition from CEO to chief vision officer, according to Work Truck Solutions.
“Just a few years ago, we were very fortunate to bring on board one of our earliest advisors, Aaron Johnson, and he met the challenge of bringing the company’s corporate systems and data platform to the highest level of operations," said Schifferle. “My transition into the role of chief vision officer means that I can be hyper-focused on ways to supercharge the company’s role in helping all our customers through the needed evolution of the commercial vehicle industry.”
Kevin Kinell, who has led the product and development team for over seven years, will assume the role of chief technology officer to further drive the speed of providing solutions, partnerships, and technology values to customers and the industry, according to Work Truck Solutions.
