LAFAYETTE -

The new chief executive officer of Lafayette-based Wabash National Corp. (NYSE: WNC) has begun his tenure. Brent Yeagy was named CEO in December, succeeding Dick Giromini, who stepped down from the role Friday.

Yeagy has been with the company since 2003 and has served as president and chief operating officer since October 2016. Wabash National says Giromini will remain with the company as an executive advisor through June 1, 2019, at which point he will retire from the company. 

"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend my sincere gratitude and admiration for Dick’s many contributions in his 11 years as CEO," said Martin Jischke, chairman of the board. "As CEO, Dick changed Wabash National from being primarily a dry van manufacturer to the growing, diversified manufacturer it is today. The Board is confident that new CEO Brent Yeagy—a talented, energetic and experienced leader—will build on the foundation Dick put in place and carry Wabash National’s legacy of innovation and growth into the future."

Yeagy says he hopes to build on the foundation created by Giromini as the company shifts toward acceleration of its strategy.
