Des Moines, IA - A former Ruan Transport Corporation veteran of 22 years has rejoined the company as Vice President of Sales. Neil Runella of West Des Moines joined the Ruan sales team in September and is responsible for the company's Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma territories.
"We're thrilled to welcome Neil back to Ruan," says Eric Lee, Senior Vice President of Sales. "His long history with the company, combined with his in-depth knowledge of the industry and outstanding client skills guarantees he'll be a great leader in our sales team."
Runella started with Ruan in 1981 and spent 22 years in the Ruan Leasing Group. Prior to rejoining Ruan last month, Runella was with Penske Corporation for five years.
"I am excited to be back at Ruan where I know integrity and process improvement are the cornerstone of improving customers' delivery systems," says Runella.
Neil, originally from Chicago, Illinois, currently resides in West Des Moines with his wife Vicki. He's actively involved with the non-profit Royal Family Kids Camp which is a week-long live-in camp for abused, neglected and abandoned Iowa foster care kids ages 7-11.
