Prevost’s Jack Forbes has retired from the company, effective March 5, after more than 40 years in the motorcoach industry.
Forbes started his career in the industry in 1980 and joined the Prevost team in 1998 as VP, part sales. Through providing great customer service and having the right parts available at the right time, Forbes grew the Prevost parts business. In 2012, he took on the daunting task of a dual role as VP, parts sales and corporate accounts.
“I continued working to grow the parts side while also developing our plan to move into the public sector commuter business,” Forbes said. In 2016, Forbes moved to coach sales where he was responsible for seated coach and public sector as vice president of new coach sales.
In the last year, Forbes shifted his focus to key corporate accounts, during which time he also began the process of passing the torch to Prevost newcomer Brad Wiese.
“We are grateful for the hard work, accomplishments and upbeat attitude Jack brought to Prevost,” said Francois Tremblay, Prevost GM. “He leaves big shoes to fill, and we wish him the absolute best in his retirement.”
