Fredericton Peterbilt Team
Tim Hawkins started the Peterbilt dream in 1994 along with his father when he began serving New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island with a single, Fredericton dealership. A seasoned entrepreneur whose family boasts over 45 years in the truck business, he soon expanded to Moncton, and has recently grown to include a total of nine centres in Atlantic Canada. With a focus on service excellence, value, and dependability, he continues to grow the Peterbilt brand here in Atlantic Canada, and transform the region into a destination for service excellence for all makes and models.
Tim holds a BA in economics from the University of Western Ontario and a BBA from the University of New Brunswick
A long-time member of New Brunswick’s trucking industry, Tom Dykeman boasts over 25 years of experience and success in the field. As Operations Manager, Tom strives to keep Peterbilt Atlantic’s wheels turning and pistons firing as smoothly as possible in each location, and across all departments. Tom is certified with both his Pro Trucker certification, as well as a range of certifications through the Canadian Forces School of Administration and Logistics, which he earned through participation in a series of courses in the 80s. Since then, he’s honed his skills as a service writer, a foreman and a service manager. In the latter role, his management skills were recognized with a Service Manager of the Year award in 2004. And while he takes great pride in building strong customer relationships and supporting a skilled Peterbilt Atlantic staff, Tom is never happier than when escaping to his camp and spending time with his family.
Very few truck sales associates understand the trucking market better than Phil. As a veteran owner-operator with 18 years experience, he knows the value of having the right truck for the job. Since leaving life on the road, he’s been a proud member of the Peterbilt sales team since 1998.
Mark Francoeur, CA
A number cruncher through-and-through, Peterbilt Atlantic’s Chief Financial Officer Mark Francoeur keeps the accounting side of the business running smoothly, across all of the company’s branches.
Mark earned his BBA from UNB in 1988, and obtained his CA certification in 1991. He joined the Peterbilt team in 2007, after spending several years working for a private accounting firm in Saint John. Mark enjoys the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of Peterbilt Atlantic, and finds the always-changing and challenging daily tasks of his role to be his favourite part of the job.
If Mark could have it his way though, his dream job would take place out on the green. As soon as golf season hits you can usually find Mark competing in tournaments all over the region. Mark and wife Angela have a young son and daughter, and live in Fredericton, just a stone’s throw from the shop.

A family man, Norm has two daughters, one son, and two grandsons. He loves golf, hunting, fishing and touring the trails on his four-wheeler.
