Build Your Dreams Amps Up Sales for Regional Growth Opportunities
In an effort to proactively leverage a growing market opportunity, Build Your Dreams, a global leader in battery-electric vehicles, confirmed the appointment of two additional sales associates to support the West Coast and Pacific Northwest Coach & Bus team.
“California, Washington, Oregon and Idaho are proactive, natural adopters of electric transit vehicles, and as such, we’ve added Bobby and Scott to help us keep ahead of the region’s growing needs,” West Coast Director of Business Development for Coach & Bus practice, Justin Scalzi said. “They will help both public agencies and private entities from the planning stages through delivery, operation and maintenance of electric bus fleets.”
Robert “Bobby” Bafus and Scott Smith are the two new faces behind the sales efforts. Each will be responsible for specific regions. Bafus is assigned Washington, Oregon, and Idaho while Smith will cover the Northern California and northern Los Angeles County regions. Smith is a U.S. Navy veteran with an impressive background as an Aviation Electrician. Bafus brings an extensive background ensuring production, inspection, testing, quality assurance, and leading commissioning efforts meet and exceed client expectations as seen with his previous role as Commissioning Lead Inspector for a global engineering firm.
“BYD continues to set the curve for delivering the innovative and fast-advancing technology of battery-electric buses,” said Bobby Hill, Vice President of BYD Coach & Bus. “And decisions like the December 2018 California Air Resources Board (CARB) Innovative Clean Transit regulation, which requires state public agencies to transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2040, will continue to keep zero-emissions buses moving forward.”
