The company also announced the formation of an office of the chief executive officer, consisting of Desimoz; Mark Holden, chief financial officer; and Derek Nagle, vice-president of Wabash and president of North American Trailer Centers.
“These changes are intended to lead to the appointment of a permanent chief executive officer as soon as is reasonably practical and to an improvement in the financial performance of the company,” said Donald J Ehrlich, chairman of the board.
