Their expertise resulted in a quality exit strategy for Central Truck Center.” Sam Keyton will continue his work with the organization in a sales leadership role.

The addition of Central Truck Center’s two locations supports All Roads’ goals to increase their commercial truck sales and repair capacity. As Wendy Nieberlein, Chief Financial Officer for All Roads says, “The combination of Central Truck’s talented team and the resources and relationships of All Roads positions us to deliver best-in-class service to the commercial truck market within the region.”

“The combination of Central Truck Center with All Roads will create a dynamic, growing Kenworth truck dealership,” Allen Stott explained. “It was a pleasure working with Sam Keyton to assist him and his partner Henry Meinhardt III in achieving their exit strategy, while providing Sam with a great opportunity to continue in a truck sales leadership role at All Roads.”

Allen Stott, CCA Managing Director, led the Central Truck Center deal with Managing Director, Michael Zuidema, and Senior Analyst, Mohammad Siddiqi. Kathryn Hickey from PilieroMazzo served as legal advisor to Central Truck Center.
