Dear Industry Friends, Clients, and Partners,
I would like to personally inform you that on Friday, January 3, 2014, I have resigned from my position as the general sales manager of Don Brown Bus Sales. This mutual separation is fully amicable and designed to guarantee the future success of both parties. My departure will allow me to pursue new opportunities within the industry to ensure the positive growth and advancement of my career in serving your needs. There will be a transition period of consulting for Don Brown Bus Sales to ensure the well-being of our clients and partners. As I move forward, I will be working closely with DBBS and consulting for them to ensure that you receive the same level of customer service you have grown accustom to.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my genuine gratitude to DBBS and thank Mark and Eric Sebast, as I will forever be grateful for the opportunities they provided to me. The personal and career growth and development experience they allowed was a rare experience that I hold in very high regard. The brand, relationships, and customer loyalty that we were able to build in a short time is a testament to our commitment to the industry.
“Having the opportunity to work with AJ over the past four years has been a true pleasure. He is one of those rare individuals who truly cares about the success and well-being of all of his clients, and that shows in both the amount of his time that he dedicated to them as well as the personal friendships that have developed because of it. AJ's departure is not without sadness, but I know he will be successful whatever path that he chooses, and I look forward to watching him continue on in his journey,” says Eric Sebast, vice president of Don Brown Bus Sales.
“We have had the privilege to enter an industry together, to build relationships and products that are second to none. Together we developed our manufacturing and dealer support network—a winning combination that we will continue as we go forward. We wish AJ all the very best as he continues his career,” says Mark J. Sebast, president of Don Brown Bus Sales.
I would also like to thank you for your support over this time and ensure that you will be in good hands with DBBS in the future. I have been able to establish priceless relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime. I look forward to serving our industry for many years to come and continuing to give back to all of you who have supported DBBS and myself and made all of our success possible. Details of my transitions are still being finalized, and more information will follow shortly.
