Prevost is celebrating the 32-year career of Ron Beverly in the motorcoach industry. Beverly worked with Prevost for 21 of those 32 years as a regional sales manager for parts in the South Central U.S. territory. He built a fantastic customer-base and is well known for putting customers first.
Beverly began his tenure in the motorcoach industry with Oregon’s Marathon Coach in 1988, where he worked in several different capacities within the parts division until 1997. That same year, Beverly made the move to Desert West Coach in Arizona, where he was responsible for disbursement and inventory management for all of their repair operations.
In 1999, former VP of Parts & Business Development Jack Forbes hired Beverly as one of the first regional parts sales managers when Prevost began creating a team to support regional customers with all their parts requirements.
“Since I had been a customer of Prevost including other manufacturers and suppliers previously, I had every intention of delivering a high level of service that I had expected as a customer. I believe I achieved that goal as often as possible. However, none of that would have been possible without the excellent support from the whole Prevost team. I was able to build very strong customer relationships throughout the region by working extremely hard to earn their trust and trying my best to deliver above their expectations. Being a strong advocate for our customers is tremendously important and I offered all the support possible in order to ensure the very best customer service to contribute to our customer's business success,” says Beverly.
He added: “I've always said ‘the reason we all have these jobs, is because we have customers’. I certainly wish all of the bus industry a speedy recovery getting back to the business that we all are committed to and all love after COVID-19. I will miss you all!”
With Beverly’s retirement, the Prevost parts regional sales managers have redistributed territories to be able to manage the transit, coach, entertainer, and motorhome customer base.
Tom Crowl, director of national parts sales says of Beverly: “Ron is and has always been a very strong advocate for his customers. If I were a Prevost parts customer, I would want Ron to be my representative. Ron will be missed on our Prevost team.”
“Ron has been an outstanding resource and friend for Prevost and the entire bus industry over the past 25+ years. He was always helpful and a great team player consistently going above and beyond for our customers,” says Vice President Corporate Accounts and Public Sector Jack Forbes. “We will miss Ron from the business aspect but also for his willingness to step up and play the guitar any time he had a chance. Good luck to Ron in his retirement plans!”
