Volvo Trucks UK and Ireland has created a new Director of New Vehicle Sales position and has appointed Hannah Burgess to fill the role. Burgess will oversee new truck sales and all related product and customer support activities, and will execute a merger of Volvo’s existing Commercial Truck and Product, Digital & Delivery departments.

On The Verge Of History

Over 22 years, Burgess has worked in Volvo’s Financial Services department and UK dealer network and served as Fleet and Retail support manager and Commercial Operations manager. Before assuming a Director of Product, Digital & Delivery role in 2019, she spent about five years as Volvo Group’s director of Group Product and Sales Delivery. Now, Burgess says Volvo is on the “verge of the single-biggest introduction of new products” in its history.

“When we revealed our new heavy truck range back in February, we did so with the promise that our latest generation FH16, FH, FM and FMX models would make our customers even more competitive and help them attract the best drivers in an increasingly tough market,” she says. “It’s fair to say that promise has never been more important than it is now, given the amazing efforts by road transport fleets to keep the UK and Ireland moving in 2020 – despite the most challenging period we have all faced, both professionally and personally.

Find Volvo Trucks

You’ll find hundreds of new and used Volvo trucks for sale every day on this site, including numerous FH16s, FHs, FMs, and FMXs.
