Following an all-time record truck sales performance last year, Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has promoted Craig White to Head of Sales.
White’s appointment follows a realignment of IAL’s structure to build efficiencies into an expanding business model.
The broader organisational restructure included the combining of key divisions into a new Sales and Aftersales department, the appointment of Ella Letiagina to Head of Network Development and more recently the promotion of Matt Sakhaie to Head of Product.
Joining Isuzu in 2017, White had a range of experience across the automotive sector before becoming IAL’s National Dealer Sales Manager in 2017.
In his new role, White will be responsible for developing and managing all aspects of the sales functions and the brand’s off-highway engines under the Isuzu Power Solutions (IPS) banner.
With oversight of national and major fleet, including government, and sales through the extensive Isuzu dealer network, White’s focus will be on further developing sales opportunities through customer demand across a wide range of industries.
“I’m really excited for the road ahead and look forward to implementing the strategies of the executive team,” he said.
“One of my immediate priorities will be getting out in the field to meet with our customers and dealers face-to-face across the country.”
IAL Director and COO, Andrew Harbison, said he was thrilled for both IAL and White.
“The past 12 months has seen incredible sales growth at Isuzu and Craig’s work in the National Dealer Sales Manager position has been a major role in our overall success,” he said.
“Craig’s background in both passenger and commercial automotive sales brings a wealth of broader industry knowledge and his understanding of the brand, our customers and our professional dealer network really cemented this crucial appointment.”
