Jan 1, 2002 12:00 PM
As part of the restructuring program announced Sept 28, 2001, Volvo Global Trucks has announced a new organization designed to maximize operating efficiency of its two North American operating units, Mack Trucks Inc and Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA). Mack and VTNA will maintain separate headquarters, each with its own management and all functions necessary to deliver brand-specific products and services.
However, several functions will be brought under common leadership, reporting to Michel Gigou, president and chief executive officer of VTNA. While leaders of these functions will be based at VTNA headquarters in Greensboro NC, each will have personnel in Allentown PA to support Mack management. These personnel will lead support functions:
Terrence C Grube has been named vice-president-legal. He most recently was Mack executive vice-president, general counsel, and secretary.
Göran R Gustafsson has been chosen vice-president-customer engineering. He was formerly Mack vice-president-customer engineering.
