Davey Coach Announces a New General Manager
Davey Coach is proud to announce Chad Solano as the new GM. Since 2009, Chad has worked his way through the ranks, having roles in practically every aspect of Davey Coach, including Sales and Leasing, Titling and Processing, Parts and Services, and Detail-Finishing. Prior to General Manager, Chad was the Director of Fixed Operations, which prepared him for the day-to-day operational management of his new role.
A former Naval Seaman, Solano served our country from 1997 through 2001 on board the last non-nuclear aircraft carrier to be decommissioned - U.S.S. Constellation CV64. While serving, Chad competed for the Navy in wrestling for 2.5 years. After entering the civilian world Chad worked in Real Estate which gave him the freedom to reach and teach wrestling to underprivileged kids. Running programs like 'Beat the Streets' and the Boys and Girls Club, his teams won numerous state championships from 2004 through 2014. Solano currently coaches for the Colorado Wrestling Academy who has continued to win state championships 8 of the last 9 years.
Mr Solano seems a natural fit to be be GM at Davey Coach while his nickname around the company is quite literally "Coach"! Chad's "Adapt and Overcome" attitude is his greatest asset to the day-to-day operations at Davey Coach.
