Employee Spotlight: Chris Naylor

Name: Chris Naylor

Position: Director of Parts Operations

How long have you worked at Nextran?
23 years.

What do you love most about your day-to-day job at Nextran?
I have enjoyed teaching young men and women the industry as well as the importance of teamwork to create a place customers want to come and feel welcome.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
I have really enjoyed watching the Nextran name grow and take great pride in being a part of helping to create one of the best OEM Truck Dealership networks in North America. I have had the opportunity to work for and alongside some of the most knowledgable people in this industry.

What advice would you give to a new Nextran employee?
Best advice I can give is that Nextran is like family, a place you can make a career out of. Food, Fuel and Refuse will always require trucks to move them, so the employment opportunities continue to grow with limited sources of applicants. I feel like most people have no idea how many industries depend on trucking or even know to consider trucking as a career path..

If you could open a Nextran dealership anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I often kid about opening a Nextran facility in Aruba. I love to scuba dive, fish and just be around beaches–I’ve been to Aruba six of the last seven years!


What is your favorite sports team?
I am a Gator fan and predominantly a huge football fan. I do watch almost all sporting events. Favorite NFL team is/was Pittsburg Steelers, but I also had season tickets to the Buccaneers for 24 years.
