George Vorreas was recently promoted to governmental account representative at Piscataway, N.J.-based Foley Inc. Vorreas will be responsible for all municipal and governmental customers in Foley’s territory, which includes 13 counties in New Jersey, Staten Island, N.Y., and Bermuda. Vorreas will work with governmental customers to help fulfill their equipment needs with Caterpillar products, assist them with product specifications and provide support throughout the bid process.

Vorreas began his career at Foley in 1997 as a customer support representative in the Foley Lift Division. He then went on to work for the Machinery Division as both a CSR and machinery sales account manager. In 2012 Vorreas returned to the Foley Rents Division as a rental account manager and in June transferred back over to the Machinery Sales Division covering the New Jersey counties of Essex, Hudson and Union.

“George’s experience and knowledge in both the Machinery and Foley Rents divisions will make him a perfect fit for this position, allowing him to assist our government customers as they choose the right equipment for their needs,” said Jeff Merle, vice president of Machinery Sales at Foley Merle.

Vorreas will leverage contracts such as the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance and the National Joint Powers Alliance, which are cooperative purchasing organizations established with the specific purpose of reducing procurement costs by leveraging group volume. Caterpillar machinery such as construction, pavement repair/maintenance, material handling, vocational trucks and used equipment are all available to purchase through these contracts.

Foley Inc. is the Caterpillar dealer in North and Central Jersey, Staten Island, N.Y., and Bermuda.
