ARI, a global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, and its parent company, Holman Enterprises, announced a pair of key sales leadership promotions designed to further strengthen the organization’s position as the premier provider of integrated B2B automotive and fleet management services.
Joe Foster has been named the company’s Vice President of Technical Sales and Ryan Peters will assume the role of Vice President of Sales for ARI’s eastern region.
In his new role as Vice President of Technical Sales, Foster will now oversee a diverse team of regional engineering managers, account managers, and truck specification analysts who will further align the sales efforts of the organization’s commercial business segments including ARI and Auto Truck Group.
Foster was previously responsible for ARI’s sales efforts throughout the eastern region, helping to develop a strong team of sales managers who specialize in aligning the company’s fleet management solutions with the needs of their customers.
Foster began his career at Holman Enterprises in 2014 with Auto Truck Group, the organization’s work truck upfitter specializing in the design, manufacture, and installation of truck and van equipment, most recently serving as Director of National Fleet Sales.
As Vice President of Sales, Peters will manage ARI’s new business development activities throughout the eastern United States and play a vital role in company’s continued strategic growth in the fleet management industry.
Peters joined the organization in 2018 as a Director participating in Holman Enterprises’ Leadership Rotation program. Prior to joining Holman Enterprises, Peters worked as an attorney with the prestigious Pepper Hamilton law firm and he also currently serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the SEAL team Reserve Unit.
“Joe and Ryan’s extensive automotive and fleet expertise combined with their natural leadership traits have proven to be invaluable to our organization and they’ll certainly continue to help our customers maximize the potential of their fleet as a strategic business asset,” said Anthony Foursha, executive vice president, sales and service excellence, ARI. “Together, ARI, Auto Truck Group, and Holman Enterprises are able to leverage our unrivaled automotive core competencies to help customers overcome real-world business challenges that often transcend fleet and the latest evolution of this alignment provides a truly seamless end-to-end supply chain solution for all fleet stakeholders.”
