Sullivan Promoted to Succeed Fischer
The appointment of Arthur G. Sullivan as Manager of Motor Fire Apparatus Sales to succeed Fred Fischer, resigned, has just been announced by the American-LaFrance & Foamite Industries, Inc.
Mr. Sullivan, who took over his new duties April 1, has been Assistant Manager of this important division of the company’s business for several years, started with the American-LaFrance organization fourteen years ago as a traveling service representative, later being placed in charge of all field service in the United States. He went from there to the Sales Department, and worked his way up to his present position.
With his wide experience in the fire department field, covering in all a period of twenty years, and a personality that has won him a host of friends everywhere, Mr. Sullivan is regarded as being unusually well equipped to carry on his new work. He will make his headquarters at the company’s executive offices in the Fisk Building, New York City.
Mr. Sullivan’s predecessor, Fred Fischer, one of the bestknown figures in fire circles, has been with the company a great number of years. He has saved his money, it is said, and plans virtually to go into retirement, to take a wellearned rest.
