Volvo’s Nilsson retires

Claes Nilsson, executive vice president of the Volvo Group and president of Volvo Trucks, has announced his retirement. Nilsson has visited South Africa many times over the years. I interviewed him for our regular Face to Face column in Issue 8/2018 (you will find the story on our website should you have missed it). He has worked at Volvo since 1982, so Nilsson is synonymous with the Volvo brand.

Nilsson will be replaced by Roger Alm, who was president for the European Division at Volvo Trucks. His career at Volvo Trucks began in 1989 and he has held many senior positions at the company, including head of operations in Latin America and Europe.
