Peterson Manufacturing has announced two new additions to its sales department: David Black and Joseph Shaw. Both have backgrounds in the Commercial Vehicle segment––especially heavy-duty trucks, trailers and fleets.
As the new Business Development Manager of Fleets, Black will focus on all fleets in the Eastern and South-Central U.S.
“David Black’s expertise in both carrier management and fleet sales will be key in bringing Peterson’s message to the trucking industry’s user segment,” said Al Anderson, peterson vice president sales & marketing.
Black’s career began at a Lexington warehouse/trucking company while a student at the University of Kentucky, which he eventually ran as vice president and general manager. Black later moved on to sales for such companies as Bose Ride and, most recently, FlowBelow.
Black will work from his home office in Georgetown, Kentucky.
Shaw will be joining the company as product sales manager for Canada.
“Joe has a long history of success in the commercial vehicle segment,” Anderson said. “His sole focus will be growing our presence in the Canadian market –– where the harsh environment and corrosive roadway chemicals are exactly what our Defender was designed to protect against.”
A Florida native, Shaw holds two degrees from the University of Florida –– finance and accounting. His resume includes stints with Holland Binkley, Jost International, Pac-Lease, Bose Ride, and most recently, Sears Seating.
