kscarbel2 Posted April 6, 2016 Share Posted April 6, 2016 In addition to Volvo Group CFO Jan Guander and executive board appointee Hakan Samuelsson, both long-time Scania veterans, Martin Lundstedt will now be working with another old Scania colleague at Volvo. Lars Stenqvist, has agreed to leave Volkswagen Truck & Bus and become head of Volvo R&D. Martin Lunstedt and Lars Stenqvist grew up together from the age of kindergarten in the city of Mariestad. After high school, they served their two years of compulsory military service together and went on to attend college at the renowned Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg where Volvo is headquartered. Both men joined Scania in 1992 after graduating. Last September, Volkswagen Truck & Bus head Andreas Renschler removed Stenqvist from his position as Senior Vice President and head of Vehicle Definition at Scania, and gave him a new assignment as head of R&D at VW’s truck & bus unit. (Volkswagen Group managed to acquire enough shares of Scania in May 2014 so as to take control) Like Lundstedt, Stenqvist was unhappy with the new German control of Scania. Born in 1967, Stenqvist began his Scania career by working at several of the company’s production units. From 2002 to 2004, he served as head of Scania’s chassis assembly operations in the Netherlands. From 2004, Stenqvist worked within Scania's R&D unit. In 2007, he was appointed Senior Vice President and Head of Vehicle Definition. . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
