“Steve has done a great job as a regional manager for the past several years and the dealerships he has worked with have consistently been among the top ROUSH® sellers. I’m confident that he can put this knowledge and experience to use on a national level and work with our other regional managers to elevate the entire ROUSH® dealer base,” said Joe Thompson, ROUSH® Performance vice president & general manager.
“This is an exciting opportunity and I’m ready to jump in and start working with all the ROUSH® dealers across the country and not just those that had been in my territory. I think that we have some of the best regional managers in the business servicing these dealerships and together we can elevate the ROUSH® brand in ways that will continue to make the dealers additional profits,” Ford explained.
