Iveco has appointed Sascha Kaehne as its new business director for the UK and Ireland, replacing Stuart Webster.
Kaehne had been the brand’s business director for Heavy Trucks in the EMEA region since 2017, before which he was managing director for Iveco Trucks Germany for four years.
Commenting on his new role, Kaehne, who holds an MBA from Heriot-Watt University, said, “I’m in the enviable position of taking on this new role at a key moment for Iveco, just weeks after the international launch of our New Daily light commercial vehicle, and as we prepare to unveil our new heavy truck range this summer.
“The next few months promise to be very exciting; and I’m looking forward to capitalising on my heavy truck background to maximise all opportunities in this major market.”
Kaehne will be based at the UK headquarters in Basildon and replaces Webster, who has chosen to leave the brand to pursue other interests.
Webster said, “I’ve enjoyed a wonderful 19-year career within the group and having the opportunity to lead Iveco in the UK and Ireland these last four years has been a privilege. I wish everyone within the brand the very best for the future.”
