PREVOST® NAMES NEW DIRECTOR OF PRE-OWNED COACH SALES

Dupont has worked in the bus industry for over 25 years, most notably as the third-generation owner and General Manager of one of the oldest service centers for motorcoaches and motorcoach operators in the province of Quebec (autobus Dupont founded 1936).

Dupont will join the Prevost Business Line management team under the leadership of François Tremblay, Vice-President / General Manager. “We welcome the extensive experience and fresh new perspective Jean brings to the table. We intend to be a key player in the industry for operators looking for a pre-owned coach. Jean's leadership, business development and customer experience will benefit both Prevost’s pre-owned business and the new coach sales team,” added Tremblay.
Dupont assumed his new role, based in Sainte-Claire, Quebec, Canada, the first week of January 2017.
