Regan Prendergast

At UD Trucks we celebrate individuals that share our ‘Gemba’ spirit of being passionate, professional and dependable. It’s the people within UD Trucks Australia who set us apart.


We’d like to introduce you to Regan Prendergast who is an exceptional Shift Leading Hand that always leads by example. Regan is originally from New Zealand and relocated to Australia to join CMV Derrimut over 2 years ago, and came highly recommended from NZ executives.


Regan’s Service Manager describes Regan as “one of the hardest workers I have ever met, and numerous other staff from all levels of the organisation state the same thing”. Not only does he have the knowledge to instruct what action to take in the workshop, but he enthusiastically rolls up his sleeves and gets in there himself to get the job done.


A big thank you and congratulations to Regan for embracing the Gemba Spirit!
