  Ron Beverly, 32-Year Industry Veteran Retires from Prevost
 

From Prevost:

Prevost is celebrating the 32-year career of Ron Beverly in the motorcoach industry. Beverly worked with Prevost for 21 of those 32 years as a Regional Sales Manager for parts in the South Central U.S. territory. He built a fantastic customer-base and is well known for putting customers first.

Beverly began in the motorcoach industry with Marathon Coach in Coburg, OR in 1988. He worked in different roles there until 1997 including: Production Parts Manager, Purchasing & Materials Manager and eventually as part of their Senior Management Team procuring all materials and components for the motorhome conversion process. In 1997, Beverly made the move to Desert West Coach in Phoenix, AZ being responsible for disbursement and inventory management for all of their repair operations.

During those early years, Beverly remembers wondering what it would be like to work for Prevost. He expressed an admiration for what Prevost was doing and hoped for an opportunity to join the team. In 1999, that chance materialized; Jack Forbes, then the Vice President of Parts & Business Development hired Ron. Beverly was one of the first Regional Parts Sales Managers when Prevost began creating a team to support regional customers with all their parts requirements and he worked hard to live up to the challenge of building and supporting the territory.

"I was thrilled to be part of the Prevost organization and put pressure on myself to be sure I lived up to the Prevost reputation of delivering first-class service to my customers," says Beverly.

"Since I had been a customer of Prevost including other manufacturers and suppliers previously, I had every intention to deliver a high level of service that I had expected as a customer. I believe I achieved that goal as often as possible. However, none of that would have been possible without the excellent support from the whole Prevost team," Beverly commented. "I was able to build very strong customer relationships throughout the region by working extremely hard to earn their trust and trying my best to deliver above their expectations. Being a strong advocate for our customers is tremendously important and I offered all the support possible in order to ensure the very best customer service to contribute to our customer's business success."

As a musician himself, Beverly has a unique understanding of the entertainer segment and enjoyed working with that group of customers as well. "Servicing the entertainer leasing accounts in my region was challenging and yet very rewarding. Being a musician myself, I realize the challenges the artists, bands and crews face out on tour. Meeting those challenges whenever they arose, was exciting and to know that you've made a difference for them was rewarding."

  After Following in Father’s Footsteps, School Bus Mechanic Retires
  
     From School Bus Fleet:

After slightly more than two-and-a-half decades, Marty Maier, who has been the head mechanic at the Hilton Central School District (CSD), is retiring on Tuesday.

Maier's father, Charlie Maier, had also been head mechanic at the district before he retired in 1994, after 43 years of service, according to New York Bus Sales. When Marty Maier went to work for the district 26 years ago, he replaced Charlie.

"In total, the Hilton Central School District has had a Maier in the head mechanic position for the last 69 years," John Johnston, vice president of New York Bus Sales, told School Bus Fleet.

Marty had acquired a substantial amount of vehicle maintenance experience before he came aboard the district; he had owned a garage in Hilton for about 18 years. "We fixed all types of cars and trucks, and the Hilton Dairy trucks and some buses," Marty told SBF.

Like working for Hilton CSD, that business was also a family affair: Charlie initially started the business at their home.
