Jasper Engines & Transmissions announced on Dec. 14 that Craig Hessenauer has decided to retire after 34 years of dedicated service in several roles, most recently as the Vice President of Fleet and National Programs (FNP).
“Craig was a key player in the overall growth of Jasper Engines and Transmissions,” said Jasper Executive Vice President of Sales Joe McDonald in a recent news release. “He was one of the first associates hired when we opened the Mid-Atlantic area with the Baltimore and Philadelphia branches.”
After leading both markets for several years, Hessenauer was promoted to regional vice president of sales for the East Coast until taking a new challenge with FNP four years ago. Under his guidance, JASPER successfully implemented a strategic focus on National Fleets.
Director of FNP Jesse Doty will be replacing Hessenauer as VP. He has helped in the growth of the FNP team and was involved in showcasing how Jasper can effectively meet the diverse needs of fleet managers.
“Jesse’s deep understanding of the industry, coupled with his strategic mindset, makes him the ideal candidate to lead our FNP division into the future,” said McDonald. “We are confident that under Jesse’s guidance, our commitment to providing exceptional products and services to national fleets will continue to thrive.”
“I want to thank Craig for his guidance and leadership over the last few years,” said Doty. “We have a really great team in our Fleet and National Programs division. I look forward to working with them and all our national customers.”
