Over the six years Everett has been with HSM, Transportation & Specialty Manufacturing has grown into a key supplier in the school bus seating segment, touching all major school bus producers, and driving innovation in seating solutions. The division supports customer needs in several transportation segments in addition to the school bus, including commercial seats, RV, ATV, and aftermarket. Prior to joining HSM, Everett spent 18 years with American Seating and six years with C.E. White.

“I have come to a fork in the road and I feel it’s time to put the passion and energy into my personal life as unwaveringly as I have into my business life,” stated Everett.

During his retirement, Everett will continue to support the company in a strategic advisory role and be involved in special projects.

A search for the new division president has been initiated. In the interim, the Transportation & Specialty Manufacturing Division will report to COO Michael Hinshaw.
