Truck manufacturer Scania has announced that Martin Hay will take over as its UK Managing Director, effective 1 September.
Hay replaces Claes Jacobsson, who is returning to the truck manufacturer’s Swedish HQ.
He has been with Scania for more than 28 years, latterly as Vice President of Truck Sales in Sweden since 2016.
Prior to that, he was at the UK headquarters as Sales Director. He also worked within the dealer network, including as Managing Director for the former Scantruck operation and as regional executive director for Scania South East.
“The UK is one of Scania’s most successful and important markets worldwide, and I am looking forward to rejoining the team and working with them and our customers as we continue to develop the market and drive the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions,” said Hay.
Jacobsson said of Hay: “I know he will do an excellent job for Scania in the UK going forward.
“For my part, I have enjoyed five fantastic years in Great Britain and it is with a heavy heart that I say farewell to the many friends – colleagues, customers and suppliers – I have made during my time here.”
