Navistar’s global head of product development to come to Melbourne

The organizing committee of the inaugural Global Truck & Trailer Leaders Summit (GTTLS) in Melbourne has announced a new keynote speaker who has a very special connection to the Australian continent – Navistar's Group Vice President, Global Product Development, Dennis Mooney.

Dennis “Denny” Mooney is not only responsible for Navistar’s global product development organisation, which designs, develops and validates products with a focus on quality, reliability, and fuel economy, but has also served as Chariman and Managing Director of General Motors’ (GM) Holden brand in Australia.

Given Holden’s decision to cease manufacturing in Australia by 2017, Denny’s presentation is highly anticipated, as he will be able to provide some unique background information on the manufacturing scene in both Australia and the US and share his personal views on modern automotive management in general.

Mr Mooney can draw on more than 30 years of experience in the automotive and trucking industries with broad product development expertise and a strong record of delivering successful programs. Prior to joining Navistar in 2010, he had a distinguished 31-year career with General Motors, where he most recently served as Vice President of Global Vehicle Engineering.

Denny Mooney has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Master’s degree in National Resource Strategy from National Defense University. He is a long-time member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and a past board member of the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME).

At the first-ever global Global Truck & Trailer Leaders Summit in Melbourne, Mr Mooney will share his personal views on the state of the US and global truck market and elaborate on Navistar’s future product strategy.

Tickets for the even are strictly limited and now available online.
