SCANIA AUS­TRALIA says it is pleased to an­nounce the pro­mo­tion of Ju­lian Gur­ney to the po­si­tion of sales di­rec­tor, Buses and En­gines.

Gur­ney is now re­spon­si­ble for sales of the full range of Scania buses and coaches, as well as the in­dus­trial and marine range of en­gines.

Pre­vi­ously, he was na­tional sales man­ager, Buses and Coaches, for Scania. Gur­ney has worked for Scania for 12 of the 14 years he has been in the bus in­dus­try.

“I am very ex­cited to ac­cept this new role at this time. The launch of the fully in­te­grated Scania Tour­ing [coach] re­cently has been the cul­mi­na­tion of a lot of hard work from our en­tire bus and coach team, and the In­dus­trial and Marine En­gine divi­sion is go­ing from strength-to-strength, driven by in­dus­try recog­ni­tion of Scania’s proven fuel- con­sump­tion sav­ings and fan­tas­tic up­time,” Gur­ney said.

“With a pro­jected near record level of de­liv­er­ies sched­uled for 2018, and a very strong carry-over ‘or­der book’ for 2019, we can see a high level of on­go­ing cus­tomer con­fi­dence in Scania’s ve­hi­cle and en­gine prod­uct,” he added.

“I look for­ward to work­ing closely with our man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Mikael Jans­son, to con­tinue to grow Scania bus, coach and en­gine sales in Aus­tralia,” he said.
