Mack Trucks announced Friday, Jan. 18, that Matthew Walsh has been named vice president-export for its international operations business, effective immediately. In his new position, Walsh will be responsible for Mack’s international export business, sales and distribution development. His duties will include overseeing export marketing, truck and parts sales, logistics, customer support and distributor development.
“The export component of Mack’s international operations business has grown rapidly in the past several years,” says Frank Meehan, Mack’s senior vice president of international operations. “Matt has played a major role in the recent success of our export activities, and he will help us continue this impressive growth.”
Walsh joined Mack in 1996 and has held positions of increasing responsibility within international operations, most recently as director of international parts sales, logistics and CKD (completely knocked down or disassembled trucks for export) operations. He will continue to be based in Allentown, Pa.
Exports of trucks and components has been an important area for Mack for decades. Mack Trucks are sold and serviced through an extensive distribution network in more than 45 countries, and the brand is particularly strong in Latin America and Australia. In South America, Mack de Venezuela C.A. assembles several models in the Mack line and distributes trucks and parts in that country. The company’s largest overseas operation, Mack Trucks Australia Pty. Ltd., is an industrial and commercial subsidiary organized under Volvo Commercial Vehicles Australia and located in Brisbane, Queensland.
