Jamil Young has been promoted to president of Fontaine Modification. Young has held leadership roles with Fontaine since 2009 and had served as president of Fontaine Modification Heavy Truck Operations since 2014.

Paul Kokalis wraps up more than 35 years at Fontaine Modification, including the last 10 years as president. He is moving to a strategic role at the Transportation Products Group of Marmon Holdings, parent company of Fontaine Modification. The Transportation Products Group includes more than 20 companies.

Mike Randolph, previously president of the Work Truck & EV unit, is now vice president of sales and marketing for the combined organization.

“We are confident Jamil is the right person to lead Fontaine Modification to great heights in the future,” Kokalis said. “His technical knowledge, business acumen and extensive experience will serve our customers and employees well.”
