George Vorreas has accepted the position of governmental account representative of Foley Incorporated.

Vorreas began his career at Foley in 1997 as a customer support representative (CSR) in the Foley lift division. He then went on to work for the machinery division as both a CSR and machinery sales account manager. In the beginning of 2012 he returned to the Foley Rents division as a rental account manager and in June of 2012, Vorreas transferred back over to the machinery sales division covering the New Jersey counties of Essex, Hudson and Union.

As governmental account manager, Vorreas will be responsible for all municipal and governmental customers in Foley’s territory, which includes 13 counties in New Jersey, Staten Island, N.Y. and Bermuda. Vorreas will work with these governmental customers to help fulfill their equipment needs with Caterpillar products, assist them with product specifications and provide support throughout the bid process.

“George’s experience and knowledge in both the machinery and Foley Rents divisions will make him a perfect fit for this position, allowing him to assist our government customers as they choose the right equipment for their needs,” said Jeff Merle, vice president of machinery sales.

Vorreas will leverage contracts such as the National IPA (National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance) and the NJPA (National Joint Powers Alliance), which are cooperative purchasing organizations, established with the specific purpose of reducing procurement costs by leveraging group volume. Caterpillar equipment such as construction, pavement repair/maintenance, material handling, vocational trucks and used equipment are all available to purchase through these contracts.
