In what has been a period of musical chairs and uncertainty in the Australian truck industry in the past few months comes word to Truck & Bus News this week that Kevin Dennis, who until recently was managing director of Penske Commercial Vehicles’ On-Highway, has apparently left the organisation after to more than five years in the role.
T&B News was unable to make contact with Mr. Dennis and we are still waiting for a comment form the Penske organisation regarding the departure which we understand occurred in mid-January.
It was Dennis’ second stint with Penske having spent just over three years working with its MTU Detroit Diesel operations from 2010 to 2013. He was a part of the short lived NC2 Caterpillar Trucks/Navistar Auspac experience from 2013 until 2016, the last 12 months as managing director of the organisation before it was shut down by parent company Navistar and the International Trucks distributorship was given to Iveco.
At Penske, Dennis was responsible for the organisation’s on highway commercial vehicle offerings including Western Star, MAN and Dennis Eagle
