Spartan Motors has appointed Andrew Anderson as chief information officer. In this role, Anderson is responsible for direct oversight of the infrastructure, security, applications, development, and user support functions across the enterprise. He will report directly to Daryl Adams, president and CEO.
For more than 20 years, Anderson has led diverse teams within complex and changing business environments to accelerate annual revenue and mitigate risk using technology. Anderson brings a diverse background, having led several global automotive companies’ technology organizations through acquisitions, rapid organic expansions, and restructures.
“All areas of mobility, including specialty vehicle manufacturing, are undergoing rapid technology change and Andy’s deep experience and leadership in managing IT business processes across various sectors will be a key advantage for Spartan,” said Adams. “We welcome Andy and look forward to his contributions across our campuses and the entire organization as we face an important period of potential expedited growth.”
Anderson joins Spartan from Stant Corp., where, as CIO, he was charged with stabilizing business systems, implementing business-critical cloud-based technology stacks to enable engineering, sales, finance, and manufacturing efficiencies while leading a systems consolidation effort that allowed the company to invest in new solutions.
Before Stant, Anderson served in multiple global technology senior leadership positions at Visteon, where he led the development and launch of a broad portfolio of strategic applications, oversaw acquisitions and divestitures and streamlined the organization’s application portfolio leading to significant cost savings and efficiency gains. Prior to Visteon, Anderson worked in multiple business roles including program management, purchasing and supply chain at Ford Motor Co.
