Velocity Truck Centre (VTC) has announced the appointment of Les Spaltman to the new role of vice president of retail sales.
Spaltman was most recently head of sales with Isuzu, where under his leadership the brand reached all-time record sales in consecutive years.
He resigned from the position last year to return to the dealer world. VTC says that with his deep knowledge and understanding of truck operations and strong people leadership skills, Spaltman is a natural fit for the team.
Velocity Truck Centre president, Richard Higgins said he is delighted to welcome Spaltman to VTC.
“Les is a man of high integrity and is dedicated to supporting both his customers and his team. His past performance is unquestionable and his approach and understanding of market trends will be a huge boost to our already high performing sales team,” Higgins said.
Spaltman will take on the day-to-day management and development of the VTC sales team and will sit on the executive team.
“Les will work in close collaboration with Simon Ramsay who has recently been appointed senior vice president fleet sales and customer experience and will draw on his vast experience to ensure we provide the best possible support to our Fleet customers,” Higgins concluded.
VTC’s Australian network sells and services commercial vehicles and exclusively represents Daimler Truck brands Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner and Fuso, as well as Mercedes Benz vans.
It also operates 65 commercial vehicle dealership locations in the US across California, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Hawaii and eight locations in Baja California, Mexico.
