After seven years working with rival brands Mark ten Broeke has returned to Scania where he has taken up a position with the National Fleet sales team.
He joins managers Steven Alberse and Phillip Mayfield in Brisbane where he will report to Sales Director Dean Dal Santo.
His purview will reportedly cover the east coast of Australia.
Ten Broeke joins the commercial vehicle manufacturer after stints with Isuzu and Penske Power Systems.
He previously worked with Scania between 1998 and 2012.
In a recently released statement ten Broeke said Scania through its company-owned nationwide network was able to deliver a unique set of benefits to fleet operators across the country.
“Scania’s offer is sophisticated, innovative and focused on delivering significant financial and operational advantages to our customers, be they national or regional fleets," he said.
“And with the success of the New Truck Generation in Australia, Scania has proven itself capable of adapting its state-of-the-art product line-up to meet the needs of a diverse range of applications, from extreme heavy-haul and interstate line-haul, to medium-duty urban distribution, and a host of vocational tasks as well," said Ten Broeke.
“I am looking forward to catching up with a few familiar faces, but also taking the Scania story out to fleet operators who have not yet had the chance to sample the complete Scania package, or appreciate exactly what we can offer in terms of improved uptime and total operating economy."
According to ten Broeke, Scania remains the leading provider of sustainable and low emission alternative and renewable fuel engine options.
Dean Dal Santo welcomed ten Broeke in his role as National Fleet Sales Manager.
“With Steven Alberse and Phillip Mayfield already on board, we have a strong team of experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable managers who understand the demands of the fleet business. With our suite of services and the extremely successful NTG range, Scania is perfectly positioned to provide operating benefits to fleet owners across Australia,” he said.
“Mark adds depth to our team as well as intimate knowledge of a broader range of the market, given his seven years spent working for non-European brands. I wish him every success in this new role,” said Dal Santo.
Ten Broeke said Scania held a long time ambition to sell more than 1,000 trucks a year in Australia and had achieved it despite the disruption of the Global Financial Crisis.
