Although he is new to the Navistar brand, he has been dedicated to expanding his knowledge about the product. Over the last year, he has excelled at the dealership and has become a valuable asset to Diamond International Trucks.
This past winter, during an extreme cold alert, Adam went to a remote area on a service call. Unfortunately, the unit was not able to be repaired in the field and the tow truck was hours away.

Adam is our acting lead tech on the weekend shift and consistently leads and assists with other technicians. He never hesitates to take initiative on repairs and determine the underlying cause. He is eager to develop and expand his knowledge to achieve greater successes in the future with Diamond International Trucks.
