Scania UK Bus, Coach and Power Solutions Sales Director Mark Oliver

Scania UK has promoted Mark Oliver to the role of Bus, Coach and Power Solutions Sales Director. He succeeds Martin West, who left the business in March, and brings 27 years’ experience with Scania to the position.

Mr Oliver’s career with Scania UK began in 1995 as an apprentice instructor. He later held titles including Senior Technical Instructor and Technical and Training Manager at the business’s training facility in Loughborough and has been Bus and Coach Fleet Sales General Manager since 2012.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Oliver says: “After being with Scania UK for 27 years, it is an honour to be appointed Sales Director and to be given the opportunity to lead these two teams through the biggest transformation our industry has ever experienced.

“To be successful in this role requires three main things. Building customer relationships, trust, and nurturing long-lasting partnerships. For me, a customer’s relationship is all about building trust and giving peace of mind and reassurance that they have made the right decision – one that is right for today and also tomorrow.”

Adds Scania UK Executive Sales Director Vincente Connolly: “I am delighted that Mark Oliver will be Scania UK’s new Bus, Coach and Power Solutions Sales Director. He is a hugely experienced leader and brings the best out of the teams that work with him.

“His broad sales and technical experience will stand him in good stead, as will his relationships with customers and our colleagues in Sweden. Altogether, it makes him the perfect fit for the role and I wish him every success.”
