Rob Fortney

I began my career in transportation driving a truck for “fun” while attending the University of Arkansas.  I was hooked!

I joined Ryder Truck Rental in 1976 as a District Rental Manager first in Fort Smith and later in Little Rock, Arkansas.

In 1984 I joined Great Dane Trailers working in Northwest Arkansas and Southwest Missouri as a territory sales representative.  My first sale was to Walmart and the sales order was signed personally by Sam Walton.

In 1996 I assumed the position of Director of National Accounts for Great Dane in Savannah, GA.

I joined Wabash National Corp. in 2006 as General Sales Manager for Commercial Trailer Products.

Missing the addictive culture and climate of Savannah, Georgia, I rejoined Great Dane – Savannah in 2012 as Director of Dealer and International Sales.  My responsibilities include the oversight of dealers throughout North America and assisting the dealers as their communication conduit between various Great Dane departments and manufacturing plants.  I also work with the dealers on strategic planning, operational excellence, sales and product training as well as sales performance on new and used trailers and aftermarket parts and service metrics.
