Motor Coach Industries announced Patrick Scully as its new VP, public sector sales and marketing. The move follows MCI’s recent acquisition of the U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for Setra motorcoaches from Daimler Buses, where Scully was formerly chief commercial officer.
At MCI, Scully will lead the public sector division that serves public transit, military, university, law enforcement and other transportation specialty markets; Tom Wagner, executive director, business development, will continue to play a key role within the public sector, managing key accounts and the highly experienced sales team regionally positioned close to customers in the U.S. and Canada.
Scully will also significantly contribute to MCI’s strategic and long-term planning as part of the company’s executive team. He reports to Rick Heller, MCI president/CEO.
Scully began his career in the bus business in 1988 when he joined Ontario Bus Industries (later acquired by Daimler Buses) as a sales representative in its service parts department. He transitioned to the bus sales team at Orion in 1991, becoming general sales manager in 1993. He joined Detroit Diesel Corp. in 1994 and quickly became VP, worldwide bus and coach sales. When Detroit Diesel was sold to Daimler in 2001, Scully joined its Setra division, and was soon assuming full responsibility for the organization’s entire North American sales, service and parts operations as chief commercial officer.
