Jean Dupont Pre-Owned Coach Sales Jean Dupont, Prevost’s Director of Pre-Owned Coach Sales Sainte Claire, QC — Prevost announces the appointment of Jean Dupont to the position of director of pre-owned coach sales.

Dupont has worked in the bus industry for over 25 years. His experience and strong focus on sales and business development across North America will be an asset as Prevost seeks to further develop its pre-owned business division. In his new role, Dupont will lead a team of dedicated regional sales managers with a keen understanding of the specific needs of their customers.

“Pre-owned sales are an important facet both for Prevost business and for customers searching for reliable vehicles backed by the Prevost brand they know and trust,” Dupont says. “I’m happy to be joining such a dedicated and passionate team to help customers find just the right fit for their needs.”

Vice-President General Manager François Tremblay adds “We welcome the extensive experience and fresh new perspective Jean brings to the table. Through close collaboration, his contributions in terms of leadership, business development and customer experience will benefit both Prevost’s pre-owned business and the new coach sales team.”

Prevost Prevost is also pleased to announce that David W. Schmidt, Prevost regional sales manager, has been elected board chairperson and museum president for the Museum of Bus Transportation.

Located in Hershey, Pa., the Museum of Bus Transportation is the bus industry’s most complete museum of bus history education and information. It represents school buses, transit buses and motorcoaches, and features more than 30 historical vehicles and various industry memorabilia.

“I’m excited by the opportunity to lead the museum’s executive committee,” Schmidt says of his two-year term. “We have identified a number of initiatives that we are eager to pursue, including increasing awareness of the museum within the industry and improving our operational efficiencies. I look forward to working with our wonderful team of volunteers, both on the board and at the museum itself, to accomplish these goals.”

In other news, Capitol Tours recently marked 30 years of partnering with Prevost. To celebrate, the family-owned motorcoach tour company serving the state of South Carolina, took delivery of a brand new X3-45 coach in December. This brings their total number of Prevost coaches to eight.

“We’ve been in business since 1981, and we’ve been fortunate to be a Prevost customer for 30 of those years,” says Buddy Young, who co-owns Capitol Tours with his wife, Mary. “They have been excellent to work with and have taken very good care of us. Plus, they build a great coach that our customers love.”

Capitol Tours provides charter services to local businesses, primary and secondary schools, and universities. They also carry local military personnel as a U.S. Department of Defense-certified carrier.
