Mr Knaben was managing director of Volvo Group UK until two months ago when, following a radical senior management restructure, he was promoted to vice president at the head of the Volvo Trucks Middle East and North Africa division, based at Volvo Group's global head office in Gothenburg, Sweden.
For the past four years he has been running the group's central east Europe truck business, based in Prague, Czech Republic. Mr Grozdanovski, 51, has worked for Volvo sinceoriginally in its bus division. He joined this after graduating in engineering from Gothenburg's Chalmers University.
A string of promotions since then has taken him to posts including commercial trucks director for central east Europe, based in Warsaw, Poland, and general manager of the company's Slovakian trucks business, based in Bratislava.
He has been used trucks director for both Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks in the UK for nearly four years but this month has been appointed commercial and services director at Renault Trucks UK, reporting to its newly appointed managing director Carlos Rodrigues.
Mr Charnock's move follows the surprise resignation of Nigel Butler.
Mr Butler says that he is now looking for a completely fresh challenge, perhaps in the truck market but possibly in other sectors such as bus and coach or telematics. Mr Butler's extensive commercial vehicle business experience includes jobs as a Foden Trucks regional sales manager in the s, nearly five years as a key account manager at ERF, and nearly six years Thesis committee member cv in sales at the Paccar group's finance division.
He joined Volvo Group as managing director of its Roadcrew Solutions division in After nearly twelve years as engineering manager at Leyland Trucks, Michael Bolger has moved to Cheshire-based trailer-maker and bodybuilder Cartwright Group as engineering director.
The main aim of his appointment is to give technical director Lionel Curtis more time to spend on future development projects, according to Cartwright Group managing director Mark Cartwright. From there he moved to the Warwickshire office of Altair Engineering, a US-based computer software firm specialising in product design and development, as software business manager.
Mr Wood has been research and engineering executive director at the group's "emissions solutions" division, based alongside the long-established Cummins diesel engine manufacturing plant in Darlington, County Durham, since April For nearly seven years before that he was research and engineering executive director at Huddersfield, West Yorkshire-based Cummins Turbo Technologies.
Both these operations are part of a global components division, headed by Tracy Embree, and encompassing electronics and fuel systems, turbochargers, filters and exhaust emissions control equipment used on many other engines as well as Cummins' own. Mr Wood joined Cummins in as advanced engineering programme leader.
Posts he subsequently held include heavy-duty turbocharger chief engineer and director of engineering in the group's Asia operation.
He has a master's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Sheffield. More information at www. David Gregory has joined Tiger Trailers, a fast-growing Cheshire-based trailer-maker and bodybuilder set up four years ago by brothers Steven and John Cartwright, to take charge of health, safety and environmental hse matters.
Mr Gregory is a health and safety specialist who has worked for the past ten years at the giant GE group's oilfield services and products divisions, latterly as "hse leader" at Skelmersdale, Lancashire-based Baker Hughes.
For three years before that he was health and safety adviser at Indesit, an Italian manufacturer of domestic appliances.
Sceptics doubted that there was room in the highly competitive UK truck and trailer bodywork market for a new entrant starting from scratch but the Tiger Trailers success story so far has proved them wrong. The workforce has grown fast to around at present, and a new, purpose-built manufacturing plant in Winsford, Cheshire is due to be opened officially within two months.
Having grown up in Winsford myself, it's great to be part of a local success story. Mr Knaben will have no direct successor in the UK.
Hannah Burgess in turn is promoted from product and sales delivery director to acting commercial director.
He then moved to posts in Spain and Sweden before coming to the UK more than two years ago. These successes and the dynamism of our Renault Trucks team give me great confidence for the future. For four years before that he was in a similar Volvo Group job in Australia.
Full details of a new UK road transport event focused on low- and zero-emission technology and scheduled to start in May are expected to be revealed early next month. The organisation behind the event is a newly-formed Warwickshire-based company, Binswood Media, set up and headed by Mark Griffin.
He continued to work for DivCom after its acquisition of Expo Management but has been focused on consultancy work since July Now he is putting together the Binswood Media team that will organise the May event and, presumably, support it with new publications.Guiding the candidate in the selection of Dissertation committee members Guiding the candidate to set a realistic timeline for completion of the Dissertation Responsibly assigning the candidate a grade of SP (successful progress) or NP (no progress) each semester.
