Moniz is the new ‘Heavy Duty Trucking’ publisher

Posted on April 23, 2013

Modern Tire Dealer (MTD) parent company Bobit Business Media (BBM) has announced the addition of David Moniz to the position of Publisher of MTD’s sister publication Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT).

Moniz, most recently the publisher of Fleet Equipment and Tire Review magazines, started his career with HDT and has also worked on Fleet Owner.

“I’m a baseball fan so that puts me in the mind to say that Dave is a five-tool player,” says BBM CEO Ty Bobit.

“He is a publisher in the classic sense. He’s spent most of his career in B-to-B, and he also really gets the digital side of things. On top of it, he’s an expert in two of our key industries: trucking and tires.”

Moniz replaces interim publisher Sherb Brown and will report to him. HDT is under Bobit’s “Fleet Group” umbrella (with its 11 titles covering fleet management, Bobit Business Media is the “World’s Largest Fleet Publisher”).

Moniz is equally upbeat about the move to Bobit.

“I’ve had the pleasure to meet with Sherb, Ty Bobit, not to mention my former competitor at Modern Tire Dealer, Greg Smith, and all my dealings with Bobit have reinforced for me that this is the right move for me at the right time,” says Moniz.

“I’m really looking forward to getting out in the trucking field again and reacquainting with old friends.”

Moniz’s office is in Uniontown, Ohio, where the MTD offices are also located. He can be reached at (330) 899-2200, ext. 21 or david.moniz@bobit.com and/or david@truckinginfo.com.

Bobit Business Media produces 22 B-to-B magazines, 32 websites and 14 industry trade shows and conferences. It has several brands in the vehicle fleet market covering car and light truck fleets, transit bus and motorcoach fleets, and school bus fleets. They include Automotive Fleet, Government Fleet, Work Truck, Auto Rental News, Green Fleet, Business Fleet, Metro Magazine and School Bus Fleet.
