Flaherty is being replaced by Stephen Roy, a Volvo man that has only been around truck parts since 2008, as Volvo Trucks senior vice president, parts sales and marketing (he's the guy that's been bringing you the those unbelievably high parts prices).

From 2002 thru 2007, Stephen Roy was a loan guy with Volvo Commercial Finance. That's it. And Volvo feels these modest credentials are adequate for heading their Mack brand unit???

Now, Volvo has junior Volvo men running the Mack brand.

Joe D- I'm afraid you are right. Kevin Flaherty is/was the last of the old "big dog" names I would recognize. Good luck to him in his retirement. It has to be tough for a guy like that to finish his career with an upper management with roots far different from his.

I've said it before-only a matter of time before some Swede says..."think of all the money we can save if we eliminate this duplicate sales administrative organization we call "Mack"? After all, we design everything, engineer everything blah blah."
