Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc., distributor of one of America’s best-selling low-cab-forward trucks, announced today that Matthew A. Mesick has been appointed as the company’s first director, EV strategies. The creation of the position comes just two months after the company announced that its first all-electric truck for the U.S. and Canadian markets will begin production late in the first quarter of 2024.
“As electric vehicles will play an ever-increasing role in our future, having resources focused 100 percent in this area is necessary for our organization to support everyone’s efforts properly,” said Shaun C. Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America and Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada. “This all-new position will focus on EV growth and supporting our dealers with necessary information concerning EV regulations, trends, subsidies and more.”
Mesick has been with Isuzu Commercial Truck of America for eleven years and has held both service and sales positions. Most recently he has served as director of western regional operations for the company.
In addition to Mesick’s appointment, the company announced that two other key directors have been promoted to assistant vice president roles.
“I strongly believe Isuzu has never been in a better position in the medium-duty marketplace and we will continue to look for ways to better serve our dealers and customers,” Skinner said. “These changes will put us all in a prime position for success now and in the future.”
