Scania Australia has announced the promotion of Julian Gurney to Sales Director, Buses and Engines.

The role sees Julian, previously National Sales Manager, Buses and Coaches for Scania, responsible for sales of the full range of Scania Buses and Coaches, as well as the Industrial and Marine range of engines.

The appointment comes after a recent buzz of activity for the Scania bus division, including the arrival of the all-new Touring coach (details here).

After twelve years with Scania, Julian says he’s excited about the opportunity.

“The launch of the fully-integrated Scania Touring recently has been the culmination of a lot of hard work from our entire Bus and Coach Team, and the Industrial and Marine Engine Division is going from strength-to-strength, driven by industry recognition of Scania’s proven fuel consumption savings and fantastic uptime,”

“With a projected near record level of deliveries scheduled for 2018, and a very strong carry-over orderbook for 2019, we can see a high level of ongoing customer confidence in Scania’s vehicle and engine product,” he said.

“I look forward to working closely with our Managing Director, Mikael Jansson, to continue to grow Scania Bus, Coach and Engine sales in Australia.”
