Shaun Skinner, President, Isuzu Commercial Truck America and Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada, has been named executive officer of Isuzu Motors Limited of Japan (IML).
The appointment is the first instance when a local executive of an international Isuzu distributor has been appointed to an executive officer designation in the parent company, according to a company release.
In June 1987, Skinner entered American Isuzu Motors, and in 2002, he went to ICTA. He was then appointed the first American president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America in April 2016.
This historic appointment signifies how highly Shaun is thought of and how essential their company in North America is to Isuzu Motors Limited, said Takashi Sadaoka, Isuzu North America Corp. president and chief executive officer.
Skinner stated in response to the news that while he is honoured by this position, he honestly believes this reflects how crucial the North American market is to the development of IML and that he is happy that this will allow for more direct feedback based on the distinct market demands of the United States and Canada, especially given how rapidly technology is evolving today.
Shaun will still be the president and CEO of Isuzu Commercial Truck America and the president of Isuzu Commercial Truck Canada.
