On 1 September 2018, Martin Hay will become Managing Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited. In his new post Martin will succeed Claes Jacobsson, who is returning to Sweden to take up a role within Scania AB in Södertälje.
Martin Hay has been with the Scania organisation for more than 28 years in total. During this time he has worked within the dealer network, at importer level and at Scania’s headquarters operation in Sweden.
His dealer career included spells as Managing Director for the former Scantruck operation and as Regional Executive Director for Scania South East. In 2009 he moved to Scania (Great Britain) Limited’s Milton Keynes headquarters to take up the role of Sales Director.
In 2016 he transferred to Scania AB to become Vice President – Truck Sales to work on the global development of the Scania brand and as a member of the core team overseeing the introduction of Scania’s new generation trucks.
“I have been extremely fortunate to work for Scania in Sweden during this exciting period for the business, and it is now an absolute pleasure to be returning to Scania (Great Britain) Limited,” comments Martin Hay. “The UK is one of Scania’s most successful and important markets worldwide, and I am looking forward to rejoining the team and working with them and our customers as we continue to develop the market and drive the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions.”
Claes Jacobsson added: “Having worked with Martin during his time at both Scania (Great Britain) Limited and Scania AB, I know he will do an excellent job for Scania in the UK going forward. For my part, I have enjoyed five fantastic years in Great Britain and it is with a heavy heart that I say farewell to the many friends – colleagues, customers and suppliers – I have made during my time here. To all, I say thank you, and offer my very best wishes for the future.”
