Iveco has strengthened its senior team, hiring Mike Cutts as business line director LCV and Gareth Lumsdaine as business line director truck.
Both appointments were made by Sascha Kaehne, who took the role of business director at Iveco in May 2019.
He said: “I was excited by the opportunity to join Iveco and take responsibility for New Daily MY2019 in one of the brand’s major European markets.
“This is a product underpinned by a strong truck DNA which makes it unique in the marketplace.
“When you combine New Daily’s performance and sustainability credentials with the advances Iveco has made in connectivity, we’ve got an incredibly strong package and a compelling offer for both fleets and small users.”
Lumsdaine (pictured above), has 12 years of experience working with automotive OEMs, with experience at Renault Trucks, Suzuki GB and Dealer Development.
He said: “I’m looking forward to working with a fantastic network of dealers as we prepare to bring the new Iveco S-WAY into the market early next year.
“Its arrival marks a massive opportunity for our customers, our dealers and the brand.
“Anyone who followed the international launch will understand its potential; a stunning new cab built around the driver, next-generation connectivity and a host of features which will deliver the cost savings and productivity gains operators’ demand in this competitive marketplace.
“When you combine all this with our proven driveline package, including a full range of diesel and natural gas models from launch, IVECO has got a fantastic opportunity to make real inroads into the heavy truck market.”
The pair will work at the company’s UK headquarters in Basildon.
