Rory Schulz officially at the wheel of UD Trucks
Effective January 1, UD Trucks Southern Africa stalwart Rory Schulz has been appointed managing director of the company.
“Rory has been a true ambassador of the UD Trucks brand over the past two decades,” says Torbjörn Christensson, president of the Volvo Group Southern Africa. “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.”
Schulz’s history with UD Trucks stretches back to 1991. He therefore has an in-depth knowledge of the company and the intricacies of the local trucking market. Over the years he has been involved in numerous aspects of the business, including product planning, engineering and operations.
“We firmly support the team’s vision of maintaining and developing UD Trucks Southern Africa’s position as one of the leading trucking companies in the region. 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 the region,” Christensson adds.
Schulz presented the company’s overview of 2014 and predictions for 2015 earlier this week, which you can read all about in the February edition of FOCUS.
