HAYWARD, Calif. — Motor Coach Industries has named a leadership team for its new San Francisco Bay Area Sales and Service Center, which opened last month in Hayward.
The team includes Mike Albertolle, manager of business development and service; Matthew Hiibel, service manager; Roland Schauer, shop supervisor; and Roman Bystron, parts supervisor.
“We’ve assembled an experienced team of local talent to deliver great customer care and high-quality service,” said Ron Miller, director of MCI Service Centers. “Everything is in place from the best diagnostic equipment to a well-trained group of technicians to help operators keep their coaches in top condition to optimize safety, passenger comfort, performance and value.”
Albertolle, who reports to Miller, will be responsible for the service center’s operations, sales growth and overall customer service and satisfaction. He joins MCI from an 11-year position as director of services and facilities for a prominent Bay Area motor coach operator.
Hiibel, a heavy-equipment mechanic by training, has held service manager positions with two trucking industry service providers. He will oversee estimates and manage work orders for fast, accurate repairs.
Schauer, who also worked for a Bay Area motorcoach operator as a lead technician, technician supervisor and maintenance facility manager for the past eight years, will supervise MCI technicians and manage their ongoing training.
Bystron, who has worked for three Bay Area Ford dealerships as assistant parts manager for the past 20 years, will be responsible for maintaining parts inventory and delivery.
