Mack Trucks has appointed Zane Ryan as its new national sales manager for Mack Trucks, effective 1 September.

A passionate Mack owner himself, Ryan calls the new position his ‘dream job’.

“Mack trucks play an important part in many New Zealand fleets,” said Ryan. “Not just because Mack offers the highest horsepower conventional truck on the market but because of the intergenerational customer loyalty that the brand inspires.

“Many of our customers have purchased Mack trucks over three or more generations and have made the unique Mack look and feel an important part of their own brand. There’s a certain American-style toughness that business owners and drivers are really drawn to.”

Ryan has worked within Sime Darby Motors NZ for the past 21 years, most recently as national sales manager for Used Trucks NZ.

“I see my appointment to this role as a privilege,” he said. “The Mack team are caretakers of a brand that has been extremely successful over the last 50 years.”

Ryan and his wife Nicky are proud owners of two Mack trucks, the most recent purchase being a 1945 EH (currently being restored), which will eventually take pride of place beside their 1984 R Model Mack.
