EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – GE Capital Fleet Services today announced it has hired Mike Scott as vice president of sales to bring together GE’s domain expertise in the fleet and oil & gas industries to benefit energy customers in Texas and Oklahoma, according to the company.

Scott will work as a member of GE’s Oil & Gas team in Houston, Texas, and will collaborate closely with GE’s energy experts, truck engineers, and fleet financing specialists to deliver GE products and services to customers.
