Renault Trucks announces the arrival of Bruno Blin, who has been appointed Senior Vice President of Renault Trucks commercial and Senior Vice President of the Volvo Group’s Truck distribution Sales Area in South West Europe.
The role as President of the Renault Trucks SAS legal entity remains in the hands of Bernard Modat.
Renault Trucks is to adopt an organisation with two heads. Bruno Blin has just been appointed Senior Vice President for Renault Trucks commercial and Senior Vice President of the Volvo Group’s truck Sales Area in South West Europe. He will take up his functions 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 organisational changes and product renewals are in place, Renault Trucks will be stronger and more competitive than ever before.”
Peter continues, “Bruno Blin comes from Group Trucks Technology, where he has been heading the purchasing division since 2004. He has extensive experience from complex, global and multi-brand environments, and has lived abroad for many years. He has demonstrated excellent leadership skills and an ability to manage big changes in global organisations.”
Bernard Modat remains President of the Renault Trucks SAS legal entity and world brand director.
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.
