Interstate Batteries Announces Executive Appointments

Interstate Batteries has announced changes to its leadership team and added two new members, Chief Supply and Operations Officer Lain Hancock and Chief Information Officer Mike McCranie. 

“These leadership changes are another step toward realizing our vision of being the First Choice for sustainable battery solutions for our customers,” says Interstate President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Miller. “With our new structure and the addition of these two phenomenal leaders, we are more suited than ever to deliver the value, service and excellence our customers have come to expect from Interstate.”
