Penske Commercial Vehicles has announced its new General Manager for MAN Truck And Bus is to be Mark Mello. He will move up from his current role as GM of MAN Bus and Military Projects, taking up his new expanded role following the resignation of former MAN Truck General Manager, Gerry Stone.
“Along with his involvement in MAN bus and military vehicles during the past few years Mark is perfectly equipped for the task of spearheading MAN truck and bus in Australia,” said Paul Glavac, Managing Director of Penske Commercial Vehicles.
Mark Mello joined MAN in mid-2000 and has fulfilled a range of roles during the past 14 years, initially as the National Service Manager for MAN, before moving to management roles in dealer development, after market, retail, special projects and operations.
“My background is in truck and whilst I have been primarily involved in bus and military vehicles in recent times I have always kept a close interest in trucks and I am looking forward to helping MAN to achieve greater success in Australia,” said Mello. “There is no doubt that Penske Commercial Vehicles has brought greater opportunities and resources for MAN in Australia particularly with rental and leasing operations which combined with the MAN product line up will ensure we deliver on the tremendous potential the brand has here in Australia.”
