Midway Specialty Vehicles Hires Former Ford Exec

April 21, 2014


Midway Specialty Vehicles has hired a former Ford commercial vehicle executive as a stragic consultant to the Elkhart, Ind., vehicle upfitter.

Midway has retained the services of Rob Stevens, who left Ford earlier this year as the automaker's chief engineer for commercial vehicles. In February, Stevens accepted a role with ROUSH CleanTech as the vice president of strategy for the propane autogas modification specialist.

During his 37-year career with Ford, Stevens directed commercial development for Ford commercial vehicles, including the Transit Connect compact van, E-Series vans, and medium-duty trucks.

Stevens also developed Ford's Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program.

"Rob's background and insight will help our customers achieve the proper solutions for their fleets," said Mike Violi, Midway's chief executive. "This is a perfect fit for Midway, which prides itself in creating fleet packages that work for businesses."

Stevens is a member of the NTEA's Green Truck Association.
