Volvo Trucks Australia Announces Its New Vice-President

There’s change coming at the top of a major vehicle manufacturer as Volvo Trucks Australia announces its new vice-president.

Tom Chapman is the new vice-president of sales, Volvo Trucks Australia. He moves into the role after nearly a decade of experience with the company, first joining the Volvo Group in 2015.

He started in the marketing and communications team as UD Trucks brand manager before taking up commercial roles across both Mack and Volvo.

After this he saw Mack Trucks Australia through a turbulent period after the pandemic as the vice-president of Mack Trucks Australia. This included the launch of a revamped range of Mack Trucks.

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

“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,” adds president and CEO of Volvo Group Australia Martin Merrick.

“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.”
