Interstate Trailers’ Board of Directors has appointed Matt Laws, formerly national sales manager, to president, effective June 1, 2015.

Laws brings nearly 17 years of experience from a wide range of positions within Interstate to his new role.

“I am excited to begin this new and challenging chapter,” said Laws. “I look forward to working with our team at Interstate as well as our outstanding dealer network to continue to grow and improve the Interstate brand”.

Laws joined Interstate in 1998 as an assistant in the parts room. He was then promoted to parts manager, followed by sales representative of Interstate’s rental dealers. He had been national sales manager since 2003.

Also, Brian Schroder was appointed chief operating officer. Schroder will oversee all aspects of production at Interstate Trailers. He brings 19 years of experience in the fields of truck and trailer manufacturing, maintenance, design and after-sales support. He excels at product improvement and efficient manufacturing combined with strong leadership of the production crew, according to the company.

Schroder began his career at Interstate Trailers in 2003 as parts and service manager and later, became plant manager.

In 2012, he designed and constructed the Interstate air ramp system, which has been well-received by the market and is considered by many in the industry to be the strongest and safest air actuated ramp system available.

Finally, Sean Hutcherson has been appointed chief financial officer, after serving as the controller for more than seven years. Hutcherson oversees the accounting department with some emphasis on human resources.

This new role expands on his responsibilities regarding cash flow, investment strategy, budget and financial statement preparation. Prior to joining Interstate, Hutcherson was a pricing analyst for Rockwell Collins.
