Scania Australia has appointed Robert Obliubek to the newly-created position of National Fleet Account Manager.
Robert will be based in Melbourne and reports directly to Scania Managing Director Roger McCarthy.
Robert joins Scania after several decades working in the on-highway transport, mining and construction industries, and is enthusiastic about his new role.
“I am very excited to be joining Scania at this time,” Robert said. “Scania has a technologically advanced, premium-quality and diverse portfolio of products that are well suited to Australian operations and conditions. Additionally, because Scania trucks incorporate Scania designed, engineered and manufactured components, we have the ability to provide customers with one-stop-shop support via Scania’s superior national support network.
“Scania’s focus is to build new – and consolidate successful existing – relationships with our fleet customers.
“Scania’s wave of new products and services, including the new R-series ‘International Truck of the Year 2010’, the all-new premium mid-range G-series and ever-popular P-series trucks give Scania a range of products that are ideal for fleet applications,” Robert said.
Commenting on Robert’s appointment, Roger McCarthy added, “Robert’s key objectives will be to assist our customers to maximise returns on their transport and business investments.
“His focus will be to create optimised transport solution packages aimed at providing lowest cost of ownership and highest levels of asset utilisation via consultation and discussion with the transport specifiers among the bigger fleet customers.”
Scania now has a wide offering of after sales solutions available that may be tailored to individual fleet customer needs, from repair and maintenance contracts to fixed price servicing, preventative maintenance programs and even total fleet management. All aim to maximise uptime giving greatest asset utilisation and profitability for operators.
“Scania’s approach is to look after the customer and their vehicle all through the ownership experience, something I am sure all fleet managers appreciate,” Robert said.
