Navistar appoints new president of US truck and parts business

Navistar has appointed Bill Kozek as President of the company's North America Truck and Parts business. He succeeds Jack Allen, who was promoted to Chief Operating Officer last month.

Kozek, 50, joins Navistar following a 26-year career at Paccar, where he most recently served as Vice President and General Manager of its Peterbilt brand.

“Bill is a recognised and respected leader in the North America truck industry, having successfully run both the Peterbilt and Kenworth truck divisions during his career,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar President and CEO. “We look forward to the new perspectives and expanded strategic thinking he will bring to our core North America truck and parts business.”

“I am eager to be joining this iconic American company at this exciting point in its history,” Kozek said. “Troy, Jack and the entire Navistar team are executing an impressive turnaround, and with its new product launches, the company is well positioned to begin winning back market share. I look forward to working with them and our dealers in helping to lead the company back to its rightful leadership position.”

Kozek will report to Jack Allen and serve on the company's senior leadership team.

Navistar and Caterpillar are partners in the NC² joint venture which is responsible for the Cat branded trucks in Australia.
