Jerel Ellis has been an important part of the Purkeys team for the last 20 years. During his time with Purkeys, Jerel has served in a large variety of rolls, most recently leading many customer-facing functions, including the sales team. Jerel was introduced to the heavy-duty trucking market many years ago while working for the J.B. Hunt Transport team, where he first started building a foundation about how fleets operate and what their needs are. Over the years since that time, Jerel has continued to increase his knowledge of the heavy-duty trucking industry.
We are very pleased to announce that Jerel has been promoted to Purkeys General Manager & Vice President. The skills Jerel has developed throughout his career in the trucking industry will allow him to be an extremely effective leader for the Purkeys team. Jerel loves being able to help his co-workers when questions arise, and he especially enjoys finding solutions to help customers resolve pain points.
Purkeys founder, Bruce Purkey, and former Purkeys General Manager, Justin Purkey, created an impressive tradition of working closely with customers to solve their problems and anticipate their emerging needs from service to new product development. Jerel is excited to continue to support this important legacy by working closely with customers and other leaders across the Purkeys Mission Critical Electronics Vehicle Power division. These leaders collaborate to jointly solve fleet, dealer, and OEM needs in the heavy-duty truck and trailer industry.
