There’s been a change at the top for Penske Power Systems with Wayne Wallace moving into the General Manager of Retail Truck Sales position.
The new role comes after Penske Commercial Vehicles confirmed Penske Power Systems as a retail dealer of Western Star Trucks, MAN Truck & Bus, and Dennis Eagle across select locations nationally.
Wayne has previously held management roles in sales and service at Volvo Group Australia and leaves the top job at Queensland Truck Centre to take up the new position.
He will lead truck sales for Penske Power Systems’ selling dealerships located in Brisbane, Darwin, Mackay, Perth, Sydney, and Townsville, as well as Penske’s used trucks operations.
And Wayne says he’s thrilled to be a part of the Penske team.
“As I look across our truck brands, the opportunities are tremendous. So exciting.
“It’s time for the Australian truck market to discover what makes MAN one of the leading truck brands in the world, with the new 640 horsepower, XXL cab added to the D38 flagship range to prove it.
“On the North American side, I’m in awe of Western Star. It’s a powerful line-up, an Australian icon that is a perfect fit for so many customers with heavy duty requirements.
“And while I’ve only recently gotten to know the Dennis Eagle product, from what I’ve seen, there is no better refuse truck solution in the market.
“It has all the safety features that councils and private waste companies demand.”
Hamish Christie-Johnston, Managing Director of Penske Power Systems, welcomed the appointment.
“As a ‘voice of the customer’, Wayne will work to ensure we exceed our customers’ service expectations.”
