Volvo Group Southern Africa has announced the appointment of Marcus Hörberg as the company’s new vice president to lead the company’s local operations, with effect 1 July 2018.
Hörberg was the vice president of Volvo Peru and Region North for the past five years. He boasts 20 years of experience in customer finance, business development, strategy and country management for Volvo Group in emerging markets.
He started his career in Volvo Financial Services and worked for ten years in various position, while building Volvo Group´s customer finance business in Eastern Europe. Hörberg also gradually expanded his competencies from financial and hands-on risk analysis, to strategy and cross-cultural management with a focus on CRM and target-driven teamwork during this time.
For more than a decade, Hörberg has been managing director and country manager for Volvo Group companies in the Balkans, Morocco and Peru.
“Frequently traveling to, and living in these markets, gave me a deep insight into how small and large corporations fail and succeed in new market economies,” said Hörberg.
“I am passionately driven to create win-win situations for our customers and the society in which we are operating. I am a strong believer that value-driven organisations, with a culture of social responsibility, can contribute to our customers´ success and at the same time drive prosperity in these markets.”
