A new MD at UD’s helm
UD Trucks Southern Africa has announced the resignation of the company’s managing director, Jacques Carelse. Taking over the reins, as acting MD, is Rory Schulz – a well-respected and experienced stalwart.
According to Torbjörn Christensson, the company’s president for the southern African region, Schulz has a long history with UD Trucks, since 1991, and, therefore, has an in-depth knowledge of the company and the intricacies of the local trucking market.
“We have every confidence in Schulz and we know that he is dedicated to the success of the company, its dealers and customers across the region,” says Christensson – adding that UD Trucks Southern Africa remains the brand’s top market outside of Japan.
“With more model introductions planned over the medium and long term, we are very excited about the future growth and impact of the UD Trucks brand in southern Africa,” he adds.
Christensson also acknowledges Carelse’s contribution to the success of UD Trucks during his 20 years with the company. “We wish him every success in the future.”
