IC Bus holds annual meeting

Posted on March 31, 2010

IC Bus corporate executives and nearly 100 dealer executives recently gathered for the annual, three-day IC Bus Dealer Meeting in Orlando, Fla., to celebrate the success of the past year and plan for the coming year.

Dealers discussed opportunities for 2010 with peers and corporate executives, including the competitive advantage of Navistar's MaxxForce Advanced EGR technology for meeting 2010 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions requirements.

The meeting culminated with an awards ceremony, recognizing exceptional individuals throughout the IC Bus dealer network, including 10 IC Bus Dealer Scholarship recipients and its "Unsung Hero" Marv Wood, a training director with Leonard Bus Sales, an IC Bus dealer in Deposit, N.Y.

Finally, Miami Valley International of Cincinnati, Ohio, received the IC Bus 2009 North American Tom Cellitti Dealer of the Year Award.

Top IC Bus dealers across the country also earned Regional Dealer of the Year honors. Those recipients include: West Region: Longhorn Bus Sales (Ed Kyrish, dealer principal); Northeast Region: Wolfington Body Co. (Richard Wolfington, dealer principal); and Southeast Region: Southland International Trucks (Drew Linn, dealer principal).

IC Bus selects the Dealer of the Year winners based on a number of criteria, including performance metrics such as market share, customer satisfaction ratings, and year-over-year performance improvements. The winning dealers excelled in all of these areas.
