CH Trading adds new leadership core
CH Trading Company, the exclusive distributor of the TEMSA global bus and coach line in the U.S., has added four key executives to its leadership team. Robert Foley will join the company as president and chief executive officer; Duane Geiger will become executive vice president of sales and service; Tim Vaught will assume the position of vice president of sales, service and product development; and Anthony Mongiovi will become the vice president of sales and service.
Before assuming his new role Foley spent 23 years working for ABC Companies, a motorcoach distributor. There he served as the chief financial officer, president of financial services and chief operating officer. While at ABC Companies Foley helped lead a management team that grew the company’s revenues from $10 million to $300 million.
Geiger comes to CH Trading Company from his own real estate services firm, which he has owned and operated since 2002. Prior to that, he was with ABC Companies for 16 years. At ABC Companies Geiger served in a variety of roles where he was focused on providing bus customers with sales and service support as well as helping grow the company.
Vaught’s involvement in the motorcoach industry totals over 25 years. After owning and operating his own charter company for over 15 years, Vaught became a regional vice president for ABC Companies. He spent nearly 15 years working for ABC Companies to provide customers with outstanding service and support. His experience as an owner and an executive give him a holistic perspective of the motorcoach industry and will allow him to better position CH Trading Company to become an industry leader.
Mongiovi comes to CH Trading Company from ABC Companies, where he served as vice president and general manager for the northeast region. Prior to his 10 years at ABC Companies Mongiovi worked for Atlantic Detroit Diesel Allison Inc. He began his career at DeCamp Bus.
“We are delighted to have these individuals join us,” said Michael Haggerty, CH Trading Company’s chairman of the board. “They each have a strong background in the motorcoach industry and it’s my hope that they’ll bring that experience to their roles in helping CH Trading Company become an even bigger player on the U.S. motorcoach scene.”
