GREENSBORO, N.C. — Martin Weissburg, currently president of Volvo Construction Equipment, will become president of Mack Trucks effective June 1, 2018, in which capacity he will continue to be a member of the executive board for the Volvo Group.

Mack Trucks is one of two OEMs under the Volvo Group, the other being Volvo.

Weissburg was born in 1962, and has served as president of Volvo Construction Equipment since 2014.

He joined the Volvo Group in 2005 as president of Volvo Financial Services Americas, and in 2010 became global president of Volvo Financial Services.

“Thanks to Denny Slagle’s leadership, the Volvo Group’s North American truck business has substantially improved its profitability and competitiveness, and is strongly positioned for the future,” Lundstedt said. “In Marty Weissburg, Mack Trucks will have another proven leader who is passionate about realizing the full potential of this great truck brand.”
