ACT Research appoints chief economist

North American commercial vehicle and freight forecasting company, ACT Research, has announced the appointment of a chief economist.

Former former Deputy Chief Economist, International Markets, FX and Commodities for General Motors Company, David Teolis, will join the firm in October.

“We are pleased to welcome David to ACT Research and look forward to his contributions to our economic and commercial vehicle analyses and publications,” said President and Senior Analyst at ACT Research, Kenny Vieth. “His past work experience and perspective will make him a true asset to the ACT Research team.”

Teolis previously had a 28-year career with General Motors where he, most recently, was responsible for providing economic analysis, forecasting long-term new vehicle sales, and conducting special studies for the economies of South America, Africa, Middle East, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.

Prior to joining General Motors, David was the recipient of the Herman Kahn Fellowship in International Political Economy from the Hudson Institute where he worked on issues related to NAFTA and telecommunications deregulation.

“I am thrilled to be joining a strong team at ACT and am looking forward to getting to know our customers, their data needs, and how I can contribute to the publications and services we offer,” said Teolis.
