Volvo Trucks appoint new director for used trucks

Mike Corcoran has been appointed director for used trucks at Volvo Group UK, replacing Peter Groome, who takes up the role of regional MD for Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London.

Corcoran (pictured) takes over the responsibility for both Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks used business in the UK and Ireland, and reports directly to Gino Costa, MD of Renault Trucks UK. Costa is in charge of Volvo Group’s UK used truck operations.

“With a complete range of contract offers, finance packages and dedicated programmes for each brand; Volvo Selected and Renault Premium Selection, we have a unique offer for used truck purchasers,” explained Corcoran.

“A key part of the challenge for the used truck operation in 2014 is for us to work together to spread the message to the market place about just how comprehensive that offer is.

“Both dealer networks are supportive of what we are doing and are working very hard to offer a totally customer-focused service for the used truck buyer.”
