The underwhelming sales performance of both MAN and Western Star in Australia, since  the Penske organisation  took  over  previous distributor Trans Pacific, has seen a management shake up at the company’s Brisbane headquarters with  Kevin Dennis  being appointed as managing director of Penske Commercial Vehicles in Australia.

Dennis brings a world of experience  to the job including  previous roles as managing director  of Navistar Australia, 13 years with Detroit Diesel and Daimler Trucks North America in various senior sales and service management roles while for the past two years  he has been Director for On Highway business with Penske Power Systems in Australia.

“Kevin brings a passion for developing new business sales opportunities and an unwavering commitment to customer engagement and service delivery.  His background and wealth of experience is a perfect fit to continue the development and implementation of our strategy, including our customer first philosophy” said Randall Seymore, President Penske Transportation Group International.

“I am excited by the opportunity to get out there and tell the market about the great line up of trucks we represent in Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus and Dennis Eagle; and the effort the company has put into building true working partnerships with our customer base.” said Kevin.
