Ron Huibers may be new to the presidency of Volvo Penta of the Americas, but he is a seasoned veteran of the Volvo Group. Huibers had been president of sales and marketing, North America, at Volvo Trucks Americas, where he oversaw more than 25,000 annual unit sales through private distribution networks and national accounts.

Huibers, who has worked within the group for 20 years, took the helm last September after Clint Moore’s retirement.

Soundings Trade Only caught up with Huibers in January to see where the engine giant is heading.
