The Volvo Group Southern Africa is pleased to announce the appointment of Rory Schulz as the managing director of UD Trucks Southern Africa. This permanent appointment became effective on 1 January 2015.
Schulz has been with UD Trucks since 1991, and therefore has an in-depth knowledge of the company and the intricacies of the local trucking market. Over the years he has been involved in numerous aspects of the business, including product planning, engineering and operations.
“Rory has been a true ambassador of the UD Trucks brand over the past two decades,” said Torbjörn Christensson, president of the Volvo Group Southern Africa. “We have every confidence in Schulz and we know that he is dedicated to the success of the company, its dealers and UD Trucks customers across the region.”
UD Trucks is set to enter a ground-breaking era in its history this year, as the company will launch its new Quester range in March.
“The UD Trucks brand, with its long and successful track record in the country, is a smart and modern brand that appeals to a wide range of customers across southern Africa,” said Christensson. “We firmly support the team’s vision of maintaining and developing UD Trucks Southern Africa’s position as one of the leading trucking companies in the region. With more model introductions planned over the medium and long term, we are very excited about the future growth and impact of the UD Trucks brand in the region.”
