Grande West names new CEO

Posted on February 13, 2018

Grande West announced the appointment of Jean-Marc Landry to the position of CEO.

Grande West is making leadership changes that are focused on aligning corporate management with the needs of our growing company. These efforts are an important part of our shift from a product-focused business to a stronger sales and customer development organization.

Over the course of the past 10 years and William Trainer’s leadership, Grande West designed, engineered, manufactured, assembled, and delivered its mid-size Vicinity bus. To date, Grande West has delivered over 300 buses in Canada and the U.S. and is experiencing increased demand as the concept of right sizing takes hold.

At this time, to support this change in focus, Grande West announces that Trainer will transition from his CEO role to undertake the roles and responsibilities of president and remain as a member of the board of directors.

“Will and I have worked together for over four years now” said Jean-Marc Landry, “and we will continue to work diligently to grow Grande West as we move forward into 2018 and beyond. We will begin to implement expanded sales strategies and processes that will support the continued rapid growth that we expect. I will also be working alongside others here at the company to assure that our shareholders and other stakeholders are well informed of our progress.”

The company granted Landry one million stock options with a strike price of $1.90 for his executive incentive plan that will vest over a three-year period. The options are exercisable until Feb. 14, 2023, subject to exchange approval.
