Mike Kubas, vice president of the Power Systems and On Highway divisions of Foley Incorporated announced that John Goleskie has been promoted to the position of emissions retrofit and government sales manager.

In 2002, Goleskie started his career at Foley in the on highway division as the product support manager. In 2004, he was promoted to major account manager with primary responsibility for New Jersey Transit bus division.

“Through John’s effective leadership we have significantly grown our market share of NJ Transit buses powered by Caterpillar engines, as well as securing service agreements with Motor Coach Industries, North American Bus Industries and ZF Transmissions, thereby growing our product support capabilities and revenue outside of the traditional Cat engine business,” Kubas said.

As emissions retrofit and government sales manager, Goleskie will work to grow the company’s emissions retrofit business and increase sales to government agencies. He will collaborate with government agencies and private customers alike to find solutions to their emissions retrofit and equipment needs. Goleskie also will provide internal sales and technical support to Foley’s construction, power systems and on highway divisions to capture incremental growth opportunities in these market segments.

Reporting to Goleskie will be Aaron Israel, Rob DeLucia and Laurie Benninger. As emissions specialist, Israel’s role is to provide emissions regulatory interpretation support to Foley’s construction, power systems, on-highway and rental services divisions. He provides application and engineering support for emissions retrofit solutions to meet local air quality regulations for new and existing engines and equipment.

As emissions project manager, DeLucia coordinates the field installation retrofits of diesel particulate filters on refuse trucks, closed crankcase ventilation systems on school busses and emissions retrofits for construction equipment. DeLucia also works on data logging and scheduling field installations and provides technician and driver training for these systems, as well as post-installation support.

Benninger, government sales administrator, identifies available opportunities within the government sector and works closely with the sales teams throughout Foley to assure that governmental bids are processed correctly, on time, and with all necessary supporting documents.

“John has a proven track record in developing new business opportunities and I am confident that his leadership and customer relationship skills will lead to successful growth in emissions and government sales for Foley,” Kubas said.
