Springfield, MO – December 31, 2008 – After 7 years as manager of Canadian sales for Ridewell Suspensions, Gary Wasney is retiring. He began his career driving specialized heavy-haul equipment and has now logged more than 40 years in the transportation industry.
“Gary will really be missed at Ridewell,” said Rick Rickman, Vice President of Sales. “He played a critical role in making Ridewell a recognized name in Canada and increased our market share dramatically.”

Prior to joining Ridewell, he served as the Canadian Aftermarket Sales Manager for Hendrickson International.
“We are excited to have Claude on board. His experience in the industry and with Canada in particular will allow him to make an immediate positive contribution,” Rickman said.
