LIVONIA, MICH. — Five recently hired business development executives bring dozens of years of expertise in the automotive and alternative fuels industries to ROUSH CleanTech, company officials said on Wednesday.

All of this will lead to more effective service and support for our customers.”

Derek Whaley, whose emphasis is the public sector, including school districts and government municipalities.

Phillip Mailey, with a focus on providing fleet solutions to school districts and government municipalities.

Steve Whaley, with a focus on launching the new ROUSH CleanTech Ford F-650 and F-59 strip chassis for national fleet accounts.

Joe Rudolph, concentrating on fleet analysis and sales in the telecommunications and transit industries.
