Volvo Group Trucks UK & Ireland announces new multi-brand market company organisation

In a move aimed at strengthening the business and streamlining operations, Volvo Group Trucks UK & Ireland have announced a comprehensive reorganisation of functions at the market company’s head office in Warwick.

The new organisation brings together and merges the current Renault Trucks and Volvo Trucks support functions, whilst maintaining separate commercial functions to represent the interests of both brands in the market.

The changes are being introduced to support a new, multi-brand focused Renault and Volvo truck sales, aftermarket and marketing organisation serving its dealer networks and its customers in the UK and Ireland market.

Following the internal announcement of Arne Knaben’s appointment as Volvo Group Trucks UK & Ireland Managing Director in April, the following management personnel appointments have now been announced within the new organisation.

Nigel Butler and Mike Corcoran will lead the development and growth of the Renault Trucks and Volvo Trucks brands respectively in the UK and Ireland in their roles as Commercial Directors.

Aftermarket and Customer Support will be directed by Tony Davis and Ian Wrench, as Retail Development Director will now take responsibility for developing the two respective and separate dealer networks.

Amanda Hiatt is appointed to the new position of Marketing Director Volvo Group Trucks UK & Ireland. Amanda is now responsible for new and used truck marketing, BRS contract hire and truck rental, aftermarket marketing, product marketing and media relations for all brands.

It is planned that the full, multi-brand support teams and organisation will be in place and fully operational by 7th September 2015.

“I am delighted to be announcing the new, multi-brand focused organisation,” says Arne Knaben. “I am confident that it will enable us to support our BRS, Renault and Volvo truck customers even more effectively. The organisational changes we have put in place, demonstrate that our emphasis is firmly on delivering quality and cost effective transport solutions to our customers.”

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
