Truck Bodies and Equipment International (TBEI) announced the appointment of Bob Fines as President and CEO.

As managing partner in Kirtland Capital and Board Chairman of TBEI, Fines involvement began in the earliest days of the company. Prior to becoming a partner in Kirtland Capital, Fines spent 20 years leading industrial businesses for General Electric and Avery Dennison. His international leadership experience complements the structure of the global marketplace that TBEI competes.

With the current challenges of the truck industry and economic uncertainty, Fines’ involvement in the day-to-day activities of TBEI will strengthen the company’s position of growth.

“I will lead TBEI’s efforts to be a valued supplier in the truck industry,” he said. “Together, as partners with our customers and suppliers, TBEI will grow and position ourselves to capitalize on the industry rebound that will occur.”
