On April 10, Irving, Texas-based truck and trailer parts distributor FleetPride Inc. announced that Kevin Weadick is the company’s new CEO. Weadick will succeed Mike Duffy, who will serve as Executive Chairman and lead the Board of Directors, the company said.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Kevin to FleetPride as we enter the next phase of the company’s evolution and growth,” Duffy said. “As we continue to accelerate our digital transformation, Kevin’s strong track record of success leading technology and operations functions will be critical in driving innovation, and executing our long-term growth strategy for FleetPride as we continue to lead as the nation’s largest distributor of truck and trailer parts and service in the independent heavy duty aftermarket.”
