Here's the press release:
FLEET SALES WEST ANNOUNCES NEW ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
FOR ITS THREE DEALERSHIPS
ROBERT CAREY NAMED OPERATIONS VP; MARY BRUNICK VP, FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION
“In this business environment, more competitive and demanding than ever, we have now come to a point where we must streamline our operations, and pinpoint proactive steps to ensure success and profitability,” states Donna Coe, Sr. VP, of the three companies she and Jim Walsh, President own. General Managers and Administrative Coordinators for Fleet Sales West, Woodburn Oregon, Chevron West, Sacramento, and Golden West Towing Equipment, Anaheim, met today by video conference to learn of the roll out of this new structure.
Robert Carey, Vice President of Operations, will focus on field operations, establishing clear performance metrics and standardization of processes, providing support and direction at each dealership level..
“Standardization of operations will also be a key focus to enable us more fluid production and to help us keep pace with market demands - these are all areas we feel have massive upside potential,” says Carey.
Carey brings to the companies 27 years experience in strategic business management. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Purdue University, and has been through several prestigious strategic planning and business management training programs. Having worked with the dealerships for several years in a consulting role, Carey is familiar with the market, product lines and processes.
Having been with the company since the outset, Mary Brunick served as dealership controller and lead for the administrative assistants in the 3 stores.
With a Business Information systems degree, she has 10 years experience in the accounting field and had built a clientele list as an Oregon Licensed Tax Preparer. However, the ever increasing demands of her responsibilities with the dealerships necessitated her setting that enterprise aside some time ago.
“I am pleased to be working with Robert Carey on our mutual projects and am excited to be able to refocus on the budgeting and financial management more closely,” says Brunick.
Brunick will now narrow her focus to more financial planning and budgeting, continuing to provide support and direction to the administrative coordinators in their accounting and supporting roles to the dealership general managers.
She will be working with Carey on budgeting, setting revenue goals to meet budgets, and other related functions.
