White Motor Corporation, distributor of Higer buses and JAC trucks for Australia and New Zealand, has appointed two key customer executives.
The company has announced the appointment of Taran Mutch as National Service Manager and Scott Morrison as National Parts Manager, adding to its ability to deliver the highest levels of customer support.
Taran Mutch has over 30 years of experience in the heavy vehicle industry, having started as a diesel mechanic and comes to Higer and JAC from the Volvo Group where he held a key role as National Service Manager for UD Trucks.
He will oversee the expansion of the company’s service and customer support operations at a time when the sales volume of Higer buses is rapidly increasing and as it prepares for the introduction of JAC trucks to the Australian market.
Scott Morrison joins White Motor Company from Daimler Benz where he was National Parts Manager for Fuso. He has worked in the heavy vehicle industry in a parts role for more than 20 years and brings a wealth of experience managing parts inventories and ensuring customers vehicles stay on the road as a result of strong parts back up.
According to CEO of White Motor Corporation, Jason Pecotic, the appointments strengthen the company’s customer service capabilities and are a vital part of its strategy to deliver the highest levels of product back up and support.
JAC or Jianghuai Automobile Co. Ltd, manufactures a full range of vehicles from light, medium and heavy-duty trucks to MPVs, SUVs, passenger cars and buses. The company also manufactures engineering machinery, engines, gearboxes and other key components. The JAC brand will appear on the Australian market early next year.
White Motor Company is based in Sydney and has been the Australian distributor for Higer buses and coaches since 2006. Since securing the distribution rights for JAC in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, White Motor Company has moved quickly to establish a new head office and distribution centre at Milperra in Sydney’s South West to serve both its JAC and Higer operations.
