Truck maker Paccar Inc. shuffled the deck on the leadership of its subsidiaries, sending Preston Feight to the Netherlands to serve as president of DAF Trucks and bringing Mike Dozier home from Australia to succeed Feight as general manager of Kenworth Truck Co.

The Feight and Dozier changes, both effective April 1, came about after other top executive changes going back to the start of the year.

Feight, 48, had been GM of Kenworth since January 2015. He succeeds Harrie Schippers, 53, who had run DAF, based in Eindhoven, since 2010, according to the DAF website.

Schippers is now senior vice president of Paccar at its Bellevue, Washington, headquarters. He succeeds Gary Moore, according to Paccar’s annual report filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Moore, 60, also a former Kenworth GM, is now Paccar’s executive vice president, succeeding Dan Sobic, 62, who retired the first week in January. Sobic is a former GM of Peterbilt Motors Co., another Paccar subsidiary.

Dozier started with Paccar in 1988 and most recently was managing director in Australia. Prior to that, he was assistant general manager of operations for Peterbilt, and Kenworth’s chief engineer before that.

Dozier also now serves as a Paccar vice president.
