Martin Hay has been appointed to the position of managing director for Scania (Great Britain), with effect from September 1.
He will succeed Claes Jacobsson, who is returning to Sweden to take up a role within Scania AB in Södertälje.
Hay (pictured) has been with the Scania organisation for more than 28 years in total. During this time he has worked within the dealer network, at importer level and at Scania's headquarters operation in Sweden.
His dealer career included spells as managing director for the former Scantruck operation and as regional executive director for Scania South East.
In 2009, he moved to Scania’s Milton Keynes headquarters to take up the role of sales director and in 2016 transferred to Scania AB to become vice president truck sales to work on the global development of the Scania brand and as a member of the core team overseeing the introduction of Scania's new generation trucks.
"I have been extremely fortunate to work for Scania in Sweden during this exciting period for the business, and it is now an absolute pleasure to be returning to Scania Great Britain," he said.
"The UK is one of Scania's most successful and important markets worldwide, and I am looking forward to rejoining the team and working with them and our customers as we continue to develop the market and drive the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions."
Jacobsson said: "I have enjoyed five fantastic years in Great Britain and it is with a heavy heart that I say farewell to the many friends – colleagues, customers and suppliers – I have made during my time here. To all, I say thank you, and offer my very best wishes for the future."
