Home » The Mickey Spirit » Jimmy Hiatt retires after 32 years with Mickey

Jimmy Hiatt (left) is congratulated by Mickey CEO on his 30th anniversary with the company in 2016.

Jim ?Jimmy? Hiatt has retired from Mickey Truck Bodies after a stellar 32-year career in sales, which began in 1986 as Territory Sales Manager in the then-fledgling Van Body ?Division.? He was promoted to Vice President Sales for the Van & Vending Team in 1995, and during his tenure Mickey expanded from its original dry freight line to include refrigerated and full-service vending bodies, and also became a major manufacturer of moving bodies.

?I?ve been working with Jimmy and Mickey for 20 plus years and it has been a positive experience right from the start,? says George Hirn, President of Hirn Truck Distribution in Maspeth, NY. ?Jimmy brought a southern flair to the New York market. It?s a different market, a more rigid market, and Jimmy was a fresh face with an engaging personality. Of course, it helped that he brought a great product along with him. I introduced him to many of the major players and he immediately broke down walls with his style. It has been my pleasure working with Jimmy Hiatt and Mickey Truck Bodies.?

?Jimmy played a pivotal role in helping Mickey grow into the company it is today, says Dean Sink, Mickey President. ?He has always represented our company and our products accurately and professionally in providing the best value and most efficient delivery solutions to our customers. Jimmy took our van body business from a local position to a national presence. Some of the most popular brands in America are now delivered on a Mickey van body.?

?Selling the Mickey brand has been an honor for two reasons – the quality of our products and our 100 percent dedication to our customers,? says Jimmy.
