MACK Trucks has announced the appointment of Tom Chapman as vice-president of Mack Trucks Australia.

Mr Chapman was previously regional commercial manager for Volvo Trucks.

He has worked within Volvo Group Australia since 2015 in a variety of roles, ranging from marketing and communications to more recently supporting the VGA retail network working in branded commercial support roles.

VGA president and CEO Martin Merrick said Mr Chapman “had demonstrated an impressive ability to drive change, find solutions and support both our dealers and our customers.”

“Tom’s drive, enthusiasm for the Mack brand, and his commitment to customer success make him perfectly placed to steer Mack Trucks Australia into an exciting future,” he said.

“Mack is in excellent hands as our transformation journey continues to take shape here in Australia.”

Mr Merrick said the new Australian-made Mack range has hit the road with excellent initial feedback from customers driving these trucks for the first time.

“We look forward to seeing Mack continue to evolve under the stewardship of both Tom and the wider Mack team as we power into a rapidly changing future for road transport.”
