Penske Power Systems appoints new General Manager

Penske Power Systems has appointed Wayne Wallace to the position of General Manager – Retail Truck Sales.

Mr Wallace will lead truck sales for Penske Power Systems’ selling dealerships in Brisbane, Darwin, Mackay, Perth, Sydney, and Townsville, as well as the company’s used truck operations.

The role was created last year, following the appointment by Penske Commercial Vehicles of its sister company, Penske Power Systems, as a retail dealer of Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, and Dennis Eagle across select locations.

“Since first being appointed as a dealer by Penske Commercial Vehicles last year, we have worked hard to provide this same level of outstanding service and products to our truck customers. Wayne’s appointment emphasises the vital importance that this is to our business,” Penske Power Systems Managing Director Hamish Christie-Johnston said. 

“As a ‘voice of the customer’, Wayne will also work closely with our General Managers of Operations to ensure we exceed our customers’ service expectations.”

Mr Wallace has spent more than 20 years with Volvo Group Australia and was General Manager at the Queensland Truck Centre for several years.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Penske team,” Mr Wallace said.

“As I look across our truck brands, the opportunities are tremendous. So exciting. It’s time for the Australian truck market to discover what makes MAN one of the leading truck brands in the world, with the new 640 horsepower, XXL cab added to the D38 flagship range to prove it.

“On the North American side, I’m in awe of Western Star. It’s a powerful lineup, an Australian icon that is a perfect fit for so many customers with heavy duty requirements.”

Wayne is based at Penske Power Systems in Wacol, Queensland.
