Mark Pigott Family

Pigott comes from a family of manufacturers and business leaders. His great-grandfather William Pigott Sr. (1860–1929), founded the Seattle Car Manufacturing Company (now PACCAR) in 1905 in West Seattle, Washington. The company started off by making logging equipment and trucks. In 1917, it merged with a Portland, Oregon, company, Twohy Brothers, and was renamed the Pacific Car and Foundry Company. This merger led to expansion into making rail cars.

Pacific Car and Foundry Company were sold to American Car and Foundry in 1924 but Paul Pigott (1900–1961), William Pigott’s son and Mark’s grandfather reacquired the company in 1934 and ran it as chairman and CEO until his death in 1961. The company manufactured Sherman tanks for use during World War II. At the war’s end, however, in 1945, the company migrated its business into truck manufacturing when it acquired the Kenworth Motor Truck Company in Seattle, Washington, and later the Peterbilt Truck Company, based in California.

Charles M. Pigott (1929–), Paul Pigott’s son and Mark’s father, became president in 1965 and added the titles of chairman and CEO three years later. On January 25, 1971, Pacific Car and Foundry Company changed its name to PACCAR to better describe the businesses it owned and operated. Charles’s son, Mark Pigott, the company’s chairman and CEO in the early 21st century, succeeded him in 1997. He has one brother: John M. Pigott.
