Expressing his enthusiasm for the new role, McLean stated, “I am thrilled to lead such a capable and dedicated on-highway team and continue our rich history in driving innovation and excellence for our OEM partners and On-Highway customers across Asia Pacific. Together, we will navigate the road to a decarbonised future, fuelled by over a hundred years of experience. Our journey continues, and I am excited to be a part of it.”
