Mike Tucker recently stepped down from his position as president and CEO of Mickey Truck Bodies while undergoing treatment for an illness.
The trailer and truck body manufacturer said he will continue to be active in the company’s business in an advisory role.
To fill the void, Matt Sink, currently executive vice president of Mickey Truck Bodies and Mickey Ventures & Holdings, was named CEO of Mickey Truck Bodies; and Tom Arland, currently Mickey’s vice president of corporate sales, fleet services and parts, was named president of the company.
Addiontally, Martin Skurka was named vice president of operations, including engineering, manufacturing and purchasing. He most recently served as director of engineering.
Tucker joined Mickey in January 2018 as executive VP of strategic growth and business development, and was named president and CEO in January. He succeeded Dean Sink in that role, marking the first time in the company’s 114-year history that a non-Mickey family member was responsible for the day-to-day operations of Mickey Truck Bodies.
Prior to Mickey, Tucker was president and CEO of VT Hackney, where he spent 26 years.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family as he continues to work toward a full recovery,” Matt Sink said.
Matt Sink joined Mickey in 2007 and served as manufacturing manager before being promoted to vice president of manufacturing in 2015. He is the great grandson of company founder Will Franklin Mickey.
Arland joined Mickey in 2012 as VP of sales for beverage and engineered vehicles following a 25-year career with Ryder Systems, where he guided a multi-million-dollar business unit. Since joining Mickey, he has added responsibilities for acorporate sales, fleet services and parts.
“For the past several years, Tom has worked very closely with our team leads across all areas of the company, and has played a major role in our overall record growth in sales, as well as improvements in operational efficiency, productivity and scheduling,” Matt Sink said.
“He is extremely qualified to lead our company at a record pace.”
Skurka joined Mickey in 2018, “and has since ushered in several improvements within our engineering process,” Matt Sink said. “He is an experienced engineering and operations executive with a keen sense for product innovation, cost management and technology optimization.”
