Toomey comes on board

Lo­cal Ea­ton gen­eral man­ager Martin Toomey has joined Sca­nia Aus­tralia as head of sales

Australian Transport News - - Truck Reviews -

Out­go­ing Sca­nia Aus­tralia man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Roger McCarthy an­nounced Martin Toomey’s ap­point­ment, which is seen as com­ple­ment­ing the skill set of McCarthy’s re­place­ment, Mikael Jans­son.

Through his ten­ure, McCarthy has held a dual role as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and sales di­rec­tor for truck bus and en­gines. That will now change. “As part of our re­or­gan­i­sa­tion and to re­ally strengthen the man­age­ment struc­ture, with Mikael com­ing very much from an af­ter­sales back­ground, we have taken the de­ci­sion to in­tro­duce a new head of truck bus and en­gines sales.

“Martin Toomey, who was with the Ea­ton Cor­po­ra­tion, will join Sca­nia as the head of our sales or­gan­i­sa­tion truck, bus and en­gine sales, ef­fec­tive in the next few days.”

Toomey has 17 years of in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence, work­ing for multi­na­tional com­po­nent sup­pli­ers at Gen­eral Manger level, both lo­cally and across Asia.

“I am ex­cited to be join­ing Sca­nia at this stage in the com­pany’s his­tory,” he says.

“Over the past few years, Sca­nia’s rise un­der Roger McCarthy’s lead­er­ship has been res­o­lute and ad­mirable.

“Sca­nia is evolv­ing its hard­ware and soft­ware prod­ucts and ser­vices into a new par­a­digm, whereby we will in­creas­ingly play the role of an in­sight­ful busi­ness part­ner to our cus­tomers, of­fer­ing them so­lu­tions tai­lored to their ex­act needs.

“We will be look­ing to bring many more cus­tomers to the Sca­nia fam­ily, as well as to ex­pand the scope of our of­fer to our ex­ist­ing cus­tomers, in or­der to fa­cil­i­tate their jour­ney to greater prof­itabil­ity.

“Given the high de­gree of lo­cal­i­sa­tion we are able to add to spe­cial­ist ap­pli­ca­tions for cus­tomers, Sca­nia Aus­tralia could be­come the global bench­mark within the com­pany for spe­cialised and high pro­duc­tiv­ity ve­hi­cle so­lu­tions.

“The lessons we learn in this mar­ket, given our ar­du­ous op­er­at­ing and far-reach­ing com­pli­ance en­vi­ron­ment, can ben­e­fit other mar­kets in the Sca­nia world.”
