Sales team reshuffle at DAF

It’s all change at the top of the DAF Trucks sales operation as long-serving retail sales director Nigel Hunt (pictured) hands over the reins to Gareth Halliwell.

James Stewart takes over from Ian Grant as fleet sales director. Grant, meanwhile becomes fleet aftersales director.

The outgoing 61-year-old Hunt is retiring from DAF after 36 years but will continue in the industry as a consultant. His career began when he joined the Leyland DAF sales engineering department in 1983, where the skills acquired in finding innovative solutions to operators’ requirements set him on the path to directorship, and many of his solutions form the foundation of DAF’s current sales strategy.
