Rush Enterprises, Inc. Acquires Assets Of Lake City International; Forms New Navistar Division

Rush Enterprises also announced it has created a new Navistar division within the company, naming Richard J. Ryan to the position of Senior Vice President - Navistar Dealerships. Ryan will oversee the operations of Rush Truck Centers that sell and service Navistar products, including the newly acquired dealerships in Utah, Idaho and Oregon and a dealership in Charlotte, North Carolina.   Ryan will report directly to W.M. "Rusty" Rush, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rush Enterprises. Ryan has been with Rush Enterprises for 8 years, most recently as Regional General Manager for Rush Truck Centers in Colorado.   Prior to Rush, he was with Falding Capital Group and Detroit Diesel. 

W. M. "Rusty" Rush said, "We are thrilled to complete the acquisition of Lake City International. This acquisition allows us to expand our geographic footprint further across the Western United States and provides us with a significant presence in Utah and Idaho.   I have tremendous respect for the excellent reputation Ed Pace and the employees of Lake City Trucks have built in this region of the United States. We look forward to welcoming them into the Rush family.

"Creating a new Navistar division is a milestone for our company. We are excited to build on the relationship we started with Navistar in 2008 when we acquired an International truck dealership in Charlotte, North Carolina. Rich Ryan has led Rush's Colorado region to growth, successfully integrated acquired operations and established several innovative programs with suppliers and body builders in his region. I am confident in his leadership for the new Navistar division."
