Tom Chapman named as Vice President, Volvo Trucks Australia.

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 which saw a revamped range of Mack Trucks successfully launched as well as the recovery, then growth of heavy-duty market share.

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

“I’ve enjoyed my journey with the Mack brand immensely and I’m incredibly proud of not just what we’ve achieved, but how we achieved it. I would like to thank not only my immediate team but also our Mack customers, many of whom work with all three of our VGA brands, for their valued support during my time with the brand.”

 “I’m delighted to see Tom take the reins of the Volvo Trucks brand here in Australia,” says Martin Merrick, President and CEO of Volvo Group Australia. “We are in perhaps, the most exciting time in history to be a part of Volvo Trucks as we tackle the future of fossil free transport solutions.”

“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.”
