Ingersoll Rand has named Dean Dunton, PMP, its fleet and safety manager for North America in a promotion that gives him fleet management responsibilities. Previously, Dunton was senior fleet and safety specialist for Ingersoll Rand.
Dean succeeds Jonathan Kamanns who has been named supplier relationship management director at Ingersoll Rand, which has expanded his responsibilities to include fleet, global mobility and contingent labor services as part of a newly developed supplier relationship management (SRM) function.
Kamanns' responsibilities will include strategically planning for, and managing, the post-contract interactions with Ingersoll Rand suppliers in order to maximize the value of those relationships and ultimately define their mutually beneficial successes.
Ingersoll Rand is made up of such brands as Trane, American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, Thermo King, and Club Car.
The Ingersoll Rand fleet consists of 5,100 vehicles in its North American operations. Most of these are Ford vans — the company is currently transitioning to the full-size Transit from the Econoline — and F-150 models.
