Ian Jones, who recently retired as managing director of Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles, has become a non-executive director of Howard Tenens.
Jones joined Mercedes Benz in 2002 driving through a significant increase in market share to become number two in the UK truck market. Before joining Mercedes he worked for Volvo, Scania and DAF Trucks.
He said: “I am delighted to be working with Howard Tenens; they have demonstrated that they are at the leading edge of many aspects of the changing world of transport – from early adoption of new technologies driving both cost and environmental benefits, as well as proving to be extremely innovative in creating and tailoring transport solutions for a variety of customers with varying individual needs.”
Howard Tenens chairman and CEO Peter Morris, said: “Ian’s breadth of experience in the global commercial vehicle industry will add significant value to Howard Tenens. He joins us at an exciting time when we have just led a successful bid for the ‘Low Carbon Truck Demonstration Trial’ funded by the DfT and Technology Strategy Board, which will expedite our low carbon transport strategy.”
