RealTruck.com, a Jamestown based company that sells truck accessories online, is starting off 2016 with some big changes; earlier this month they announced that long-time Chief of Technology Officer, Justin Deltener, will be promoted to Vice President.
RealTruck.com, which was founded by Scott Bintz in 1997, has reported high growth in recent years – earning them three consecutive mentions in Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies, including 2015.
“RealTruck saw 215 percent growth, with revenue rising from $12.9 million in 2011 to $40.8 million in 2014,” Inc. reported.
RealTruck currently has over 90 employees and offers over 500,000 accessories available online.
As Vice President, Deltener will spearhead this growth to ensure it continues into the future. He brings with him a high level of experience; hired as CTO in 2008, Deltener has spent the past seven years creating RealTruck.com’s back-end order-management and fulfillment system, the development of the company’s website, and the founding of the RealTruck Fargo office, among other accomplishments.
He also has an entrepreneurial streak – one that prompted him to leave North Dakota State University his freshman year, and create a web design and development company called Mind Tremors. He built this company with his wife and brother for 9 years before joining RealTruck. Leaving to start his own company is one of the happiest moments of his life, Deltener said.
“There is no doubt in my mind that [Justin] Deltener is the man for the job,” said RealTruck President Jeff Vanlaningham. “Aside from his accomplishments as CTO, Deltener has an impressive track record of strategic and operational achievements.”
Deltener’s first line on his LinkedIn says this: “Hands down my #1 objective is to work with others to contribute to something great.”
At RealTruck, he said he finds that satisfaction. The new role will only help him further that mission, he said.
“I am very fortunate to be given opportunity to continue RealTruck’s legacy of improvement and growth,” Deltener said.
