ISUZU ANNOUNCES FRESH NEW MANAGEMENT DIRECTION
Australia’s truck market leader is excited to announce the appointment of Andrew Harbison to the position of Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) Director, Sales and Marketing.
Effective October 17, Andrew takes a well-earned step-up within the organisation following 11 years of service. For the last three years Andrew has been the National Sales Manager.
As Isuzu Trucks marches toward 28 consecutive years of market leadership here in Australia, it’s been Andrew’s business experience and knowledge that has contributed heavily to maintaining that mantle in recent times.
As a result of the restructure, former National Fleet Manager, Les Spaltman, has been appointed to the role of National Sales Manager.
IAL Director and Chief Operating Officer, Phil Taylor, said the management change represented an exciting time for the organisation, and was symbolic of a shifting business landscape.
“This change in management approach is strategic, and one we’ve been working towards for some time,” he said.
“Whilst Isuzu enjoys market leader status, and has done for many years, competition is increasing, not only in terms of the numbers of manufacturers vying for Australian business, but also in respect to the level of sales and marketing sophistication.
“Andrew’s appointment represents IAL’s response to some of those challenges, and he comes to the role with the right mix of qualifications, experience and business savvy to continue to grow our operations.”
Andrew Harbison began at IAL in early 2005 in the role of Queensland Zone Manager, and before joining Isuzu, held the position of District Sales Manager for Holden in Queensland.
He has also worked with Auto One Australia and has over a decade’s experience with Beaurepaires and Dunlop in both the retail and wholesale operations.
Mr Harbison said he looked forward to meeting the challenges the new position would hold.
“I’m extremely excited about the opportunities this appointment presents, not only at an organisational level, but on a personal level too.
“This role exposes me to some fascinating aspects of IAL’s operations, so I’m genuinely thrilled to be able to build on and maximise opportunities for the brand.
“A huge focus for me will be continuing to provide our customers with the very best ownership experience possible, and of course, our dealer network will play a vital role in achieving this.”
