Nissan North America has named Marty Gleason its director of fleet sales. He replaces Craig Keeys, who was in the role for less than a year.
Gleason comes to the role from Nissan's pre-owned and certified pre-owned division, where he was a senior manager since September of 2010. Gleason has worked for Nissan since February of 2002, when he was a dealer operations manager. He has also served in other roles in the P&S division of customer retention and senior manager of national events, dealer relations, and business management.
Gleason replaces Keeys, who was promoted to regional vice president for Nissan's Midwest region that's based outside of Chicago. He will be responsible for regional sales and marketing, incentive spending, distribution, dealer network development, financial controls, and dealer and customer satisfaction.
Keeys and Gleason now report to Judy Wheeler, division vice president of Nissan Sales Operations. Gleason will be based at corporate headquarters in Franklin, Tenn.
Gleason will be the third fleet sales director at Nissan since the spring, when Keeys replaced Joe Guarascio, who had been promoted to director of fleet and pre-owned strategy. Guarascio left the company.
