Spartan Emergency Response Hires Richard Holzman To Manage National Accounts

CHARLOTTE, Mich., Sept. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spartan Motors, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPAR) today announced that Richard (Rich) Holzman has joined Spartan ERV (Emergency Response Vehicles) as the National Accounts Manager. Holzman will be responsible for enhancing business relationships with existing fleets and expanding the Company's portfolio of large fleets in Canada and the United States. His start date is October 1, 2012.

Mr. Holzman comes to Spartan ERV from the Department of Fire and Rescue Services, Montgomery County, MD where he held numerous management positions including Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief and Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief. Montgomery County is the largest combination fire department in the United States. In his most recent position, Holzman was responsible for the consolidation and centralization of five maintenance facilities, and the daily apparatus and equipment needs of 35 MCFRS support stations, four federal fire stations and the county training academy. Accordingly, Holzman's ability to identify cost of operation/ownership improvements for Spartan customers is exceptional and is a value-add that fire departments are seeking with increasing frequency.

The addition of Holzman to the Spartan ERV team demonstrates the Company's plan to increase both the total number of customers served (emergency response fleets) and the fleet penetration levels with existing customers. Holzman's also demonstrates the Company's strategy of finding subject matter experts that bring additional dimension and incremental value to customer engagements. Twenty-seven percent of all Spartan associates have work experience in the fire service.

"The national accounts function which Rich will lead is a critical component of our plan to increase customer satisfaction and accelerate our growth. We continue to see the emergency response market as a strong growth opportunity", said Dennis Schneider President, Spartan Emergency Response (ER). "The Montgomery County experience is exceptional in terms of both scope and diversity of operations which enables Rich to immediately bring significant value to any customer engagement."
