Thorneycroft-Smith joins Modec

UK-based electric truck maker Modec just made Chris Thorneycroft-Smith its business development director.

He is best known for his successful time as UK marketing boss at Daf and later Leyland Daf and then in a similar, though wider, UK role at Iveco where he was market director and head of LCVs.

Modec has scored a recent success with a US licence deal with Navistar that should see Modec-based electric trucks on sale in North America this year.
