📅 Thu August 17, 2017 - National Edition
“Our overriding goal has always been to help keep road and construction crews out of harm’s way,” Vieveen said. “Now, with a great line of products and a wide-reaching distribution network, I can look back proudly at all we’ve done to improve jobsite safety.”
North America Traffic Inc. (NAT), portable traffic control systems manufacturer, has announced that its founder, Peter Vieveen, has retired as president of the company.
Vieveen has led NAT (formerly RC Flagman) since 1993, when he launched the world's first AFAD (Automated Flagger Assistance Device) from his garage. NAT is now globally recognized as a leading industry innovator, providing an extensive range of AFADs, portable traffic lights and warning signals. Vieveen will retain 100 percent ownership in the firm and will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board.
Management of NAT has been turned over to Jordan Sherlock, succeeding Vieveen as president, Dave Cornish as vice president of operations and Angela Verde, vice president of sales.
“Over the past five years, this team has played crucial roles in our continuous development and has guided North America Traffic to new heights," Vieveen said. "They are now well prepared to carry on the management and values of our company.”
Building on Vieveen's field experience in the construction industry, NAT has been instrumental in the emergence of highly portable, highly reliable equipment for short-term and long-term traffic control needs. An early adopter of solar charged, battery powered signals, NAT is also recognized for developing versatile, easy-to-use programming for varied applications.
“Our overriding goal has always been to help keep road and construction crews out of harm's way,” Vieveen said. “Now, with a great line of products and a wide-reaching distribution network, I can look back proudly at all we've done to improve jobsite safety.”
