Velocity Modern Classics Restructures Executive Team

New executive roles and strategic hires follow record sales and the release of new vehicle product offerings.

Classic vehicle modernization provider Velocity Modern Classics announced its newly restructured executive team that it says will further propel the company’s growth. The new leadership team is poised to help the classic vehicle modernization company achieve its production and sales goals, Velocity says.

Stuart Wilson, founder and former CEO, will continue to lead Velocity Modern Classics with a renewed focus on brand strategy and operational excellence as executive chairman.

Jeremy Hans will assume the role of chief executive officer of Velocity, moving from his previous position as partner. Jeremy brings years of leadership experience as the founder of a commercial real estate investment firm and 16 years as a U.S. Navy Officer and helicopter pilot, the company says. Hans will oversee all divisions of the company and focus on long-term growth as Velocity launches its new K5 Blazer, Mustang, and F-Series truck offerings later this year.

Velocity Modern Classics says it also welcomes three experienced members to its executive team:

-Tom Maxwell joins the team as chief revenue officer to oversee the company’s sales and marketing efforts.

– Paul Slater brings over two decades of experience as an accomplished manufacturing and supply chain operations executive to the role of chief operating officer.

-Michael Rodgers will serve as Velocity’s chief financial officer with 25 years of professional finance experience in both the public and private sectors.
