Iveco boss, Michael May has announced a major shake up amongst senior staff with a number of organisational changes that it says will allow the company to ‘further streamline operations and better respond to customer needs’.
The latest appointments take effect immediately across sales, aftersales, product development and marketing, and will assist Iveco to reposition itself in the lead-up to several exciting new model releases, whilst placing a renewed emphasis on customer support.
Current Head of Sales – Truck and Van, Glen Dyer, has also assumed responsibility for the Bus and Special Vehicles portfolio. Glen Dyer joined Iveco earlier this year from Mercedes Benz vans where he has extensive senior experience in the commercial vehicle industry.
Iveco’s former head of Legal Counsel, Marot Baker has been appointed to the newly created position of head of customer services. Ms. Baker joine Iveco in 2016 and the company says she has a substantial understanding of the business and the needs of customers.
Current Iveco head of network Development, Ella Letiagina, has had her role expanded to include product and marketing. Ms Letiagina joined Iveco in January and brings a wealth of automotive and management experience to the role. Prior to joining Iveco Letiagina was Network Commercial manager for Mitsubishi Motors Australia and priopr to that worked in a range of roles with the Volkswagen Audi Group in Belarus.
Iveco stalwart Marco Quaranta, has also assumed the position of strategic relations and Industry relations manager, with a focus on propulsion, while experienced Iveco product manager, Emiliano Foieri has been promoted to the product management lead.
Amongst the reorganisation are also two key departures with long term Iveco staffer Steve Heanes and more recent arrival Damon Paull, who joined the company in January 2020, both leaving the company to ‘pursue other career opportunities’.
Iveco managing director, Michael May, said the organisational changes come as part of a broader strategy that would simplify reporting, and assist to strategically align the company to meet new goals.
“This is a unique time in Iveco’s history with many new opportunities on the horizon for our brand,” Michael May said.
“Iveco is transitioning to offer an enhanced range of products and support solutions for our customers. These structural revisions will allow us to more efficiently meet our objectives and to reach the high expectations we’ve set for ourselves as a company.
“The changes also empower our team to react more nimbly to market conditions, and builds a new way forward for Iveco by providing further means to differentiate ourselves.”
Michael May acknowledged the contributions of both Heanes and Paull.
“Steve Heanes worked with Iveco for almost 30 years and contributed strongly to the company in the senior fleet sales roles he held, while Damon Paull also had a significant impact in the role of marketing manager during his tenure,” Michael May said.
“I thank Steve and Damon for their service and wish them every success in their future endeavours.”
