Volvo boss goes home

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Bikes -

PETER Hertinge is re­turn­ing to Swe­den af­ter five years at the helm of Volvo Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles Aus­tralia. He will take up a po­si­tion with Volvo Trucks In­ter­na­tional Divi­sion. Hertinge over­saw the merger of Mack into VCVA, moved Volvo head­quar­ters from Syd­ney to Bris­bane and watched as many longterm and valu­able Volvo em­ploy­ees left the com­pany. He was also in the chair when Mack sales plum­meted last year. Arne Kn­aben will re­place Hertinge in Septem­ber. Kn­aben was pre­vi­ously the manag­ing di­rec­tor of Volvo Truck Cen­tre, Den­mark. Changes are also in the wind at Hino, with the re­tire­ment of John Conomos and the de­par­ture of Jun­suke Ando.
