Kevin Weadick, FleetPride Chief Executive Officer
Irving-based FleetPride Inc., the nation’s largest distributor of truck and trailer parts and service provider in the independent heavy-duty aftermarket, has appointed Kevin Weadick as chief executive officer.
It’s part of a planned transition in which Weadick will succeed Mike Duffy, who will serve as executive chairman and lead the board of directors.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Kevin to FleetPride as we enter the next phase of the company’s evolution and growth,” Duffy said in a statement. “As we continue to accelerate our digital transformation, Kevin’s strong track record of success leading technology and operations functions will be critical in driving innovation, and executing our long-term growth strategy for FleetPride as we continue to lead as the nation’s largest distributor of truck and trailer parts and service in the independent heavy-duty aftermarket.”
Weadick is a seasoned executive with over two decades of experience leading digital transformations, industrial product management and marketing teams, large-scale legacy system replacements, supply chains, and M&A integrations.
Aiming ‘to keep the country running’
“I am honored to have the opportunity to join the team at FleetPride and look forward to helping the business execute its long-term growth strategy and achieve its aspiration to keep the country running,” Weadick said in a statement.
Most recently, Weadick was president of Zoro.com, a subsidiary of W.W. Grainger Inc., where he more than doubled the eCommerce business to over $1 billion in revenue, developed an outstanding customer-focused team, and drove Zoro’s culture, which has been recognized with multiple workplace awards.
Weadick previously served as vice president of supply chain and marketing for Grainger Europe, where he was responsible for leading both functions. He also was vice president of Americas SAP and vice president of product management for Grainger Canada.
Early in his career, Weadick held several roles of increasing responsibility across Grainger’s North American Supply Chain.
FleetPride’s sophisticated network of more than 300 locations includes more than 80 service centers and five distribution centers. That network allows customers to get the parts and services they need, when and where they need them, the company said. FleetPride has a team of 4,000 experts empowered to solve problems and create tailored solutions for each customer’s unique needs.
