Martin Weissburg, currently president of Volvo Construction Equipment, will become president of Mack Trucks effective June 1, 2018.


He succeeds Dennis Slagle, who has led the company since 2008. Slagle will remain with the Volvo Group — the parent company of Greensboro, N.C.-based Mack — as a special projects leader reporting to Volvo Group CEO Martin Lundstedt beginning June 1.

“Thanks to Denny Slagle’s leadership, the Volvo Group’s North American truck business has substantially improved its profitability and competitiveness, and is strongly positioned for the future,” Lundstedt said in a statement.

“In Marty Weissburg, Mack Trucks will have another proven leader who is passionate about realizing the full potential of this great truck brand,” he said.

Weissburg also will continue to be a member of the executive board for the Volvo Group.
