Isuzu promotes new network development boss

Newly appointed Nathan Ton at Isuzu Australia Limited.

Nathan Ton has been promoted to the position of Head of Network Development according to Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL).

Ton brings with him a solid track record of over 20 years in the automotive sector, having had prior management experience at GM Holden and over nine years as IAL’s National Network Development Manager.

Ton’s appointment comes at the cusp of significant growth and change for the brand which is set to debut a new product line-up next year.

IAL Chief of Sales and Aftersales, Ben Lasry, said Ton’s relationship with the Isuzu Dealer Network — comprising over 70 sites nationally — and his deep knowledge of dealer requirements were critical to this important position at IAL.

“Nathan’s extensive experience at Isuzu and his existing ties with our Dealers make him an optimal choice for leading the Network Development Team into the future,” said Lasry.

“With the heavy vehicle industry in a time of flux with zero-emission technology incoming and customer requirements rapidly evolving, Nathan will play a critical role in ensuring our Dealerships are resourced to meet these challenges.

“Nathan is currently working with Dealers to ensure that we have the right footprint across the country to meet customer requirements.”

Ton expressed his desire to further bolster the supply chain and support for Isuzu Trucks and Isuzu Power Solutions Dealers.

“IAL takes great pride in the national network of Dealers and duly recognises the value of those resilient business relationships within each Zone that have been built over years and decades,” he said.

“It is my goal to continue this close method of collaboration and where required look at expanding to the right places for our customers.”

Ton said an immediate priority will be to build on the successes of the business and work closely with Isuzu Trucks Dealers for the benefits of all stakeholders. ​

“I see further opportunities to work together to enhance what is already a very strong business—we have an unrivalled product range and over the coming years, that will only improve with the new model line-up and technology offering coming from Isuzu Japan.”
