In making the announcement, Llistosella noted, “The skill and experience Todd Bloom has gained in the last five years at the helm of MFTA will be used on a number of international assignments for MFTBC. At the same time, MFTA will benefit from the strong, process-focused and fresh, objective viewpoint brought to its leadership by Jecka Glasman.

According to Ms. Glasman, “I’m very excited by this opportunity and looking forward to growing the FUSO business in the US and Canada. Further, I would like to thank Todd Bloom for his leadership and commitment in driving the company forward.”

Glasman joined MFTBC in November 2014 and has served as MFTA’s Business Development Director, where, in addition to her normal duties, she has been able to work alongside Todd Bloom to help ensure a smooth transition in leadership and continuity of a strategic approach to the market. Prior to joining FUSO, Glasman served as Senior Vice President for Comverse Inc., a leader in the telecommunications industry. During her twelve-year tenure there, she managed large-scale global operations, and held various management positions in sales, customer service, and business operations.

For his part, Bloom echoed Glasman’s sentiments. “I have truly enjoyed my time with MFTA,” he noted. “Our customers are some of the most loyal in the industry and our dealer network has remained committed to exceeding customer needs, especially given the turbulent economy we’ve all lived through for the past several years. I’m looking forward to new opportunities with FUSO globally and I wish Jecka well as she charts a course for even greater success in the years ahead.”
