LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The longtime CEO of Wabash National is stepping down. The company announced this morning that Dick Giromini will retire next summer, after 11 years as CEO. His retirement is effective on June first of next year.

He'll be succeeded by current president and COO Brent Yeagy. Giromini will spend another year acting as "Executive Advisor" before fully retiring on June 1, 2019. He says he's most proud of Wabash National's expansion and versatility over his time spent as CEO.

"We started our Wabash Composites Business in early 2008 and since that time we've done a number of acquisitions that have helped diversify us aware from that narrow sole dependence on the dry van segment."

He says this is a great time to make a transition with the recent success Wabash National has accomplished.

"We've enjoyed 5 record years in a row through 2012 to 2016 and we felt that it's a good time now," said Giromini. "You know we're in a good place as a company we've had tremendous success."

Giromini plans to spend time with his family traveling after he retires.
