Safe Fleet Truck & Trailer recently hired Eric Marshall as its sales director.
In this role, Marshall is responsible for leading the sales vision and strategy for the truck and trailer division of Safe Fleet Commercial Vehicle.
Marshall joints Safe Fleet after a stint at The Reading Group as a director of distributor sales. He succeeds Chuck Carey, who left to pursue opportunities outside the company, Safe Fleet said.
“As a highly respected sales leader in our industry, Eric brings a deep understanding of the diverse truck and trailer markets, as well as expertise in strategic sales skills,” said Craig Bonham, vice president of Safe Fleet Commercial Vehicle. “His strong network of relationships across the industry will be a great asset as we continue to grow our market reach.”
Safe Fleet said Marshall has been a leader in the truck and trailer industry for more than 30 years, with expertise in the management of the intersection of company strategy, market needs and sales talent. He also has knowledge of truck and trailer body construction and market service applications.
Prior to The Reading Group, Marshall filled sales roles at America’s Body Company, Unicell Body Company and Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America.
“It’s a privilege to join Safe Fleet Truck & Trailer—an organization that is growing both its market reach and product portfolio,” Marshall said. “It’s a time of great opportunity, and I’m excited to take on this challenge.”
