Navistar Inc. on Tuesday, June 28, announced that Al Saltiel, former president of NC2 Global, has returned to Navistar Inc. as chief marketing officer. NC2 is the 50/50 global joint venture between Caterpillar and Navistar that develops, manufactures and distributes commercial trucks outside North America and India.
Prior to his two-year post at NC2, Saltiel had served as vice president of marketing for Navistar. Phil Christman, Navistar’s president for global truck operations and a member of the NC2 board of directors, has been named as president of NC2 to leverage opportunities in growth markets.
“Phil’s product and industry knowledge and Al’s ability to advance Navistar’s brand strategy make both men well suited for their new roles,” says Daniel Ustian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Warrenville, Ill.-based Navistar. “During his time at NC2, Al did an outstanding job of introducing Cat and International products and dealers in key markets. He’ll bring bold ideas to our mission of growing Navistar brands globally. Phil’s extensive experience growing our global business makes him the ideal leader to take our JV with Caterpillar to the next level.”
In Saltiel’s new role as chief marketing officer, he will manage Navistar’s marketing resources and will have worldwide responsibility for driving Navistar’s expanding portfolio of brands.
