Monroe Municipal Sales on the Move
August 15, 2020

Monroe Truck Equipment has grown steadily for over five decades. Throughout the setbacks that are being seen across the world, the Monroe Truck Equipment team is prioritizing growth within our own organization. Recently, we’ve facilitated a big shift for our municipal sales team. Three members of the municipal sales team are not only promoted to bigger sales regions, but are joining together to create a team that works together to specifically improve order management processes.

Wade Neville 

The Monroe Truck Equipment team is proud to announce Wade Neville will be shifting focus to new municipal territory, and concentrate on our municipal sales strategies. Wade has spent 30 years in the industry, all with our team. He has worked several positions in our company, and has the keen customer insight and experience to adapt to his new position and address the challenges that our municipal customers face. 

Using his years of insight, and several municipal relationships, Wade will leverage his experience, great communication skills and collaborative spirit to create more efficient internal order management processes to ensure our municipal customers are able to get to work right away. 

Wade is excited to focus on one market and meet new municipal customers. We’re excited to see what Wade, alongside Rick, Shawn, and other Monroe Truck Equipment team members have in store for us down the line!

Rick Nafzger

After over 25 years of municipal sales service with our team, Rick Nafzger is expanding his territory, and shifting his focus to our municipal customers. He has years of experience working with customers in Illinois and Iowa. 

Now, he is additionally responsible for southern Wisconsin. He will be working with new customers and demonstrating the resilience and high value of Monroe Truck Equipment products. 

Rick will be joining Wade and Shawn on the municipal sales-focused team to problem solve and create sustainable solutions for our internal order management processes as our customer base grows.

Rick’s years of experience, and great dedication to the needs of municipalities across the region gives him the keen insight and ability to create better solutions for customers. He not only has a deep understanding of his customer base, but also Monroe’s internal manufacturing and installation processes.
