Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV) announced John Walsh as its new VP, sales, for ASV Bus. In his new role, Walsh will lead all sales for ASV commercial, transit and school bus companies and report directly to Kent Tyler, president of ASV Bus & Mobility Group.

“I’m thrilled to have John Walsh on board to lead our bus sales team. John has more than 20 years of sales management experience in the bus industry under his belt and knows how to work effectively with dealers and customers,” Tyler said. “He is knowledgeable about our products, understands our sales goals, and will put in a tireless effort to elevate our brands and grow our business.”

“ASV Bus has a diverse and very impressive product portfolio with a strong focus on quality and innovation,” said Walsh. “I am eager to begin working with Kent and the bus sales teams to focus on strengthening our relationships with strategic dealer partners and key customers accounts. We have a tremendous opportunity to quickly increase our footprint in the marketplace, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
