Cox is now leading the outside sales staff for transportation fleet sales. Her emphasis is on propane autogas sustainability solutions for the airport and shuttle industries while supporting both public and private fleets.

Beauchamp is fleet sales manager for the western region. He is assisting fleet managers in evaluating their operations for the best ways to incorporate propane autogas fuel systems into their fleets.

“I am excited to represent ROUSH CleanTech in this new role and ready to work with airport and transportation fleet managers to demonstrate the benefits of propane autogas,” Cox said. “This is the perfect solution for airports across the country looking to offset jet aircraft emissions. Propane autogas is 90 percent domestically produced, costs about 40 percent less than gasoline, reduces greenhouse gases up to 25 percent, and is available to deploy right now.”

Cox was promoted from ROUSH CleanTech’s inside sales department, where she supported the outside sales team, Ford dealerships and ROUSH CleanTech upfitters with account and customer relationship management. She also maintained business development reporting and benchmarking tools, and acted as liaison between the sales and operations teams.

With more than 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, Beauchamp comes from Clean Cities, where he worked as a regional project manager dealing with infrastructure and deployment of alternative-fuel vehicles. Prior to joining Clean Cities, Beauchamp worked at General Motors in a variety of capacities including sales, service, marketing, government sales, and research and development.

"Propane autogas is an alternative fuel that truly can change people's habits and opinions about their fuel source," said Beauchamp. "I am very excited about this opportunity to educate fleet managers about using alternative-fueled vehicles in their fleets."
