Changes Made in Cadillac Professional Vehicle Team

Posted on August 4, 2008 by LCT Magazine

Dear Professional Vehicle Industry,

As you already know, the Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program migrated within General Motors in January 2008 and is now managed by Fleet & Commercial Operations. Additional changes took effect on August 1st.

Please join me in welcoming a new team of familiar faces to represent Cadillac in the professional vehicle industry. The new three-point team will include Angela Jurson, Jim Zoli and Joe Pennington.

Angela Jurson initiated the Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program in 1991 and worked as Cadillac’s vendor/partner in the industry until December 2000. During her time away from Cadillac, Jurson was active in the industry assisting OEM manufacturers, coachbuilders and industry start-up companies. Jurson will assist GM in developing program strategy and serve as the primary media and trade show contact. Angela can be reached at (248) 202-2219 or [email protected].

Jim Zoli, former Cadillac employee, oversaw the Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program during the last seven years of his 31-year GM career. Zoli retired from GM in 1999. During the past eight years, Zoli assisted Cadillac in a support role for professional vehicle activities, worked with multiple coachbuilders and conducted industry research related to the professional vehicle market. In his new role, Zoli will serve as the primary dealer contact for the Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program. Jim can be reached at (248) 808-0853 or [email protected].

Joe Pennington has a long history with the Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program including responsibilities as a product/release engineer, presidential vehicle program coordinator, new product launch consultant, professional vehicle protection plan advisor and coachbuilder consultant. Pennington most recently worked with a Florida-based coachbuilder specializing in armoring products for the US government. Pennington rejoins the Cadillac team as the primary coachbuilder contact. Joe can be reached at (248) 808-0854 or [email protected].

The new team replaces the previous Cadillac Professional Vehicle Program Headquarters team. As of August 1st, the new Cadillac Professional Vehicle Support Team can be reached at: Post Office Box 147, Royal Oak, MI 48068-0147 or toll free at (877) 331-3399.

We look forward to a strong working relationship with our new vendors. Please join me in welcoming them back to the team.
