RPM manager ‘retires’

Dec 22, 2017 by Triton Staff

RPM Diesel’s longtime Service Manager Mike Desderio has recently “retired” to North Carolina.

Desderio began his career as a service tech for Johnson & Towers in 1983, and joined RPM Diesel as a service tech in June of 1991. He was promoted to service manager in September the following year, where he remained for 25 years.

He was promoted to service director last summer, and he will continue to serve the Fort Lauderdale-based company in that role from North Carolina.

“Both loyal and dedicated, Mike has been an instrumental part of helping our company grow into what it is today,” General Manager Todd Barnes wrote in an email.

Service Manager Peter Berkley assumed that position last summer after 17 years with the company, first as parts counterman, then service writer, and now service manager.
