Renault Trucks announces the arrival of Bruno Blin as President of Renault Trucks commercial, replacing Heinz-Jürgen Löw who has decided to leave the company. Bruno Blin will take up his new assignment on 1 January 2013.
Peter Karlsten, Executive Vice President Volvo Group Trucks and head of the trucks distribution in Europe, Middle East and Africa comments, “The current restructuring within Renault Trucks needs to be seen in a wider context, where the whole Volvo Group is being restructured, including all its truck brands, so that each brand can develop to its full potential. In June, Renault Trucks' entire renewed product range will be launched, which will strengthen its market position. When all organizational changes and product renewals are in place, Renault Trucks will be stronger and more competitive than ever before.”
“Bruno Blin arrived in the company in 1999. He comes from Group Trucks Technology, where he has been heading the Volvo Group Purchasing organization since 2004. He has extensive experience from complex and global environments, and has lived abroad for many years. He has demonstrated excellent leadership skills and an ability to manage big changes in global organizations,” Peter Karlsten continues.
Over the past five years, the Group has invested over €2 billion in Renault Trucks. "Renault Trucks has great potential and we believe it has a vital role to play in the group’s growth strategy" concludes Peter Karlsten.
