“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Kevin to FleetPride as we enter the next phase of the company’s evolution and growth,” Duffy said. “As we continue to accelerate our digital transformation, Kevin’s strong track record of success leading technology and operations functions will be critical in driving innovation, and executing our long-term growth strategy for FleetPride as we continue to lead as the nation’s largest distributor of truck and trailer parts and service in the independent heavy duty aftermarket.”

Weadick most recently was President of Zoro, Grainger’s B2B Marketplace subsidiary, a role he held for nearly six years. At Zoro, Weadick helped more than double the eCommerce business to over $1billion in revenue.

Before that, he was Vice President of Supply Chain and Marketing for Grainger Europe, where he was responsible for leading both functions. Weadick also served as V.P. Americas SAP, and V.P. Product Management for Grainger Canada.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to join the team at FleetPride and look forward to helping the business execute its long-term growth strategy and achieve its aspiration to keep the country running,” Weadick said.
