Thanks to the extensive growth of its DOT consulting services, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. has hired Sean Nebert in the new position of Director of DOT Consulting. In addition, the company announced that Jeff Ferrell has recently been appointed to Director of Field Sales – National Accounts.

“Sean brings exceptional senior leadership experience to our consulting team,” said Steve Murray, vice president of content & consulting services at J.J. Keller. “His in-depth knowledge working with fleets of all sizes will be a tremendous asset to our DOT consulting team and the clients we serve.”
J.J. Keller’s DOT consulting team has also expanded recently to include new consultants Brandon Cain and Earl Coy. Both come to J. J.
