International Truck recognizes its North American Dealer of the Year

International Truck announces Ryan Nelson, dealer principal of Nelson Leasing Inc., as the 2021 North American Dealer of the Year. The award recognizes the top International dealer for their commitment to provide industry-leading uptime and unparalleled performance in annual sales, service and customer satisfaction.

In March of 1953, Nelson Leasing was founded by Nelson’s father. Currently, Nelson Leasing runs five dealer locations with eight subcontractors serving as the sole International Truck dealer in North Dakota, as well as serving a portion of central and north western Minnesota. The dealerships employ over 150 staff members who work to maintain an impeccable reputation as customer service leaders. North Central International and Nelson Leasing are in the process of merging to form a larger dealership to reach more customers and service areas.

Throughout 2021, Nelson and his team surpassed multiple sales, repair, parts and customer service goals. By planning ahead, they counteracted a challenging supply chain and were able to have key parts and vehicles that customers needed at the time they needed them.

In partnership with North Central International, Nelson will be opening a new facility in Corcoran, Minn. this spring. In the future, Nelson’s goal is to maintain vital relationships with customers, even as the business continues to grow. Outside of work, Nelson serves as a leader for his son’s Scout troop and volunteers for his local high school’s trapshooting team.
