Greg has exceptional commercial expertise and was a leader in the design and implementation of the Company's product line management organization introduced in 2013. "I am excited about this new opportunity. It is an exciting time to participate in our next generation product development and growth activities. I look forward to working closely with Dale and the rest of the Global Truck & Bus leadership team in support of our customers and employees," said Mr. Boese.
