Volvo Trucks Australia has announced the appointment of Tom Chapman to the role of Vice President – Sales.

Chapman joined Volvo Group Australia in 2015 as a part of the Marketing and Communications team initially as UD Trucks Brand Manager before moving into commercial roles for both Mack and Volvo.

For the last 3 years, Chapman has served as Vice President of Mack Trucks Australia during a turbulent period of post-pandemic recovery for the brand.

“I feel very privileged to be taking the helm of the Volvo Trucks brand at such an important time in the brands history.” – Tom Chapman

“Not many people get to represent and lead more than one iconic brand during their careers, taking on this role with Volvo as the Australian transport task pivots towards low and zero emissions transport is something I’m very much looking forward to.”

President and CEO of Volvo Group Australia, Martin Merrick, welcomed the appointment.

“I’m delighted to see Tom take the reins of the Volvo Trucks brand here in Australia.”

“Tom’s multi-branded and multi-faceted experience with Volvo Group Australia along with his ability to build strong customer and dealer relationships will stand him in good stead to drive the Volvo Trucks brand forward as we expand our manufacturing base here at Wacol.”

Volvo Trucks Australia recently announced a $35 million investment to expand its Wacol Qld plant and facilitate the manufacture of heavy-duty electric trucks by the end of this decade.
