Here's a little more about our road trip crew:
John's role leading marketing and business development for Westport LD has his main focus right now on the Westport WiNG power system featured in Ford F250 and F350 bi-fuel trucks launching this spring. He's leaving his car parked at home for a week to drive one of the Ford F250 bi-fuel trucks equipped with the Westport WiNG power system from Detroit to NYC using only the CNG tank.
With over 30 years in the automotive industry, marketing globally, John clearly enjoys working in the sector. He is especially interested now in the transformation of the industry from purely petroleum-based to alternative fueled cars.
When at home, John keeps busy cooking, celebrating, golfing, hunting and working in his workshop. Group dinners are frequently on his calendar with his family, his huge extended family or friends.
Nicole’s leaving her walking shoes (her usual mode of transport) and hitting the road driving the bi-fuel Ford F250 equipped with the Westport WiNG power system from Detroit to NYC using only compressed natural gas (CNG). As a communications professional for Westport, Nicole finds herself in all sorts of places talking to various stakeholders, but this week’s road trip will be her first at Westport.
Nicole enjoys trying new restaurants (pizza is a favourite!), spending time with her family and watching The Amazing Race while eating popcorn. No TV required this week; she’s on a Westport WiNG amazing race of her own!
Alissa wears many hats in her role as executive assistant, coordinating and attending marketing and sales events at Westport LD. Parking her SUV at home, Alissa is excited to drive Detroit to NYC behind the wheel of the bi-fuel Ford F250 pickup equipped with the Westport WiNG power system – using only the compressed natural gas (CNG) tank.
Spending much of her time outside of work with her husband and her pets, Alissa also keeps in touch with her mom now living on the other side of the country. Otherwise Alissa can be found, as she puts it, “…escaping reality with a good book, movie or television show.” And dark chocolate is probably involved too.
