Truck Master Warranty Appoints Industry Veteran John Kimmer as Regional Business Manager
BRANDON, Fla. (March 15, 2022) — Truck Master Warranty, the nation’s leading provider of heavy truck warranties, service contracts, and GAP insurance for the used truck industry, today appointed industry veteran John Kimmer as its Atlantic Coast Regional Business Development Manager.
Kimmer has decades of experience in the heavy-duty truck industry starting when he was in his teens as a parts manager with International Harvester. He went on to become an Atlantic Coast mid-liner account executive for Mack Trucks. He then spent the lion’s share of his lengthy career with Freightliner as a regional manager for used trucks and an appropriations manager.
“John brings a tremendous wealth of industry experience and relationships with heavy-duty trucks dealers and drivers throughout the country,” said A.J. Johnson, Chief Operating Officer of Truck Master.
Kimmer said dealers and their customers recognize that today having a warranty for their valuable investment is vital to their success.
“Dealers must always weigh investment costs versus risk,” Kimmer said. “Today, facing ever-increasing costs for fuel, staffing, insurance, and more, dealers need that peace of mind that comes from having their investment backed by a solid warranty. Dealers are holding on to their rigs longer because new truck production is down due to supply shortages, making the need for a warranty even greater.”
Importantly, having a warranty company like Truck Master that has a national footprint and has a reputation for looking for ways to pay claims rather than try to deny them is really important to our client, said James Works, Senior Vice president of Business Development.
“I have known John for many years,” Works said. “His depth and breadth of knowledge is vast, and we know he’ll be rolling along at full speed immediately.”
Kimmer will be working directly with clients by visiting their dealerships and attending industry events.
“I’ll be doing a mix of in-person and teleconference visits with our clients to make sure our products and services are fulfilling their needs,” Kimmer said. “Of course, I’ll also be meeting with prospects and referrals to introduce our products and services to them.”
