Smedley new Daimler network development head
Daimler Truck and Bus has appointed North American Matt Smedley, right, as its head of network development in Australia — working with the Freightliner, Fuso and Mercedes-Benz brands. Smedley has served with Daimler Trucks North America since 2000, most recently in business development, before accepting the offer to move down under. Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific president Daniel Whitehead says securing Smedley for the role was a “real coup’. Smedley’s role is a new one, built out of a company restructure.
