Jerry DeVivo

Commercial Truck Sales

Jerry grew up on the Northwest side of Chicago where his dad was a 30-year Chicago police officer. Always interested in music, Jerry double majored in tenor sax and drum set jazz performance and minored in jazz piano at Benedictine University, and then toured with the Mighty Blue Kings (MBK) through 49 states and 14 countries for several years. Jerry was also a Rosemont auxiliary police officer before his music tour.

After MBK disbanded, Jerry earned his CDL and began his career in trucking. He has 1.5 million miles safely logged as a truck driver and has dispatched, been an operations manager and also owned a small trucking company which he sold to a west coast carrier. Jerry is a former customer of another member of our expert sales team, George Kossivas! When George learned that Jerry had sold his company, he suggested that Jerry get into truck sales.

Jerry values the entrepreneurial spirit of truck sales. He enjoys consulting his customers and offering information based on his own experiences. He is also currently a co-leader of the Chicago Blues Angels musical group, and still performs 100+ plus shows a year. Jerry feels a perfect balance between his two career passions.

George Kossivas

Commercial Truck Sales

George “The Truckologist” was born in Montreal, Canada where his parents immigrated to from Levidi, a small village in Greece. His family then moved to Chicago where George grew up. He attended Triton Junior College to play baseball. After some missed curve balls, he decided to change things up a bit.

George worked at a Motorola plant and then realized he wanted to be in transportation. He drove trucks for Hinckley and Schmidt and then for Jays Potato Chips for five years. His mentor, Wally Ropel, advised George that he’d do well in truck sales and gave him the necessary advice to get started in semi-truck sales. George worked for Navistar International — where he won the Diamond Club award six times for meeting and exceeding goals in gross volume, gross profit and gross unit sales — and JX Peterbilt before joining our TransChicago Truck Group team five years ago.

George’s professional goal is to understand every part of the trucking industry; including truck sales and the freight market, in order to best inform his customers about how one affects the other. He loves being able to offer this insight and to help his customers make informed decisions.

George spends two weeks every year in Maui, and he is an avid snowmobiler in Michigan’s upper peninsula. His first love is baseball; he was fortunate enough to marry a woman who also loves the game!
