Arsenault Associates today announced that David L. Reed has joined the company as Fleet Management Consultant. Reed brings more than 20 years of fleet maintenance and technology experience to the newly created position.
Arsenault Associates is the industry-leading provider of Dossier fleet maintenance management software and related technology solutions. Reed will help Arsenault customers achieve the greatest benefit in the shortest time from their Dossier software system implementation.
In a remarkable career that began behind the wheel of a truck, Reed has been a shop manager, fleet manager and director of maintenance for both commercial and private fleets. As vice president, garage operations for Allied Automotive Group, the largest new-car carrier in North America, Reed oversaw a staff of 450 mechanics and 70 managers and supervisors. He is a hands-on fleet maintenance expert, software educator and consultant and is well known in the fleet maintenance industry.
Most recently, Reed worked for Continental Datagraphics (CDG) of Cypress, Calif. -- the Boeing business unit that directed the ambitious TMC FleetPortal project for the Technology & Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations. Reed led FleetPortal sales and training in the eastern U.S.
“We are very pleased to have Dave Reed on our team. He brings a wealth of experience and a record of achievement in fleet maintenance. Dave understands the challenges our customers face; he’s been a fleet manager himself so he’s solved these problems before. Most importantly, he is well versed in how to plan, implement, and utilize fleet management software to achieve control over fleet related issues and deliver the cost reductions and other associated business benefits that our clients are searching for,” said Jack Boetefuer, president of Arsenault Associates.
He added, “Dave will provide a new level of value to Dossier customers and is well equipped to help fleet people achieve the goals that led them to select the Dossier solution in the first place. Further, Dave will be able to show how a deep, intuitive application like Dossier can generate efficiencies and lower costs in ways that might not be immediately apparent to all customers.”
Reed will travel extensively to Dossier customer sites and will work from his office in Plant City, Fla., near Tampa. He can be reached at 813-707-1034 or [email protected]
