Hap Seng Trucks Distribution Sdn Bhd has announced the appointment of Marc Legeay as the new Chief Executive, effective 1st December 2020.
New Chief Executive for Hap Seng Truck Distribution
Marc will take on the role previously held by Roland Schneider, who led the successful acquisition of the commercial vehicle wholesale distribution business from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and the subsequent set up of Hap Seng Trucks Distribution. Roland will be leaving Malaysia and will take on a new role as Chief Executive of Lei Shing Hong Commercial Vehicles in China.
Marc is well equipped to lead Hap Seng Trucks Distribution with his 18 years of international experience within the automotive industry. His most recent role was as General Manager for Mercedes-Benz Trucks Middle East & North Africa (MENA), the largest Regional Center for Daimler Truck AG globally. Marc had tremendous responsibility there for the steering and management of 18 diverse markets across the MENA region. He spearheaded the regional launch of the new Actros and new Arocs back in 2018, and has subsequently led the region through a transition towards a truck solution provider focused on customer centric solutions to maximise the efficiency and profitability for Mercedes-Benz Trucks customers. This led to substantial growth in the business in the MENA region, despite regional challenges.
Reflecting on his appointment to Hap Seng, Marc said: “I am determined to provide holistic solutions focusing on our clients’ needs. We at Hap Seng remain committed and rooted to transforming the business in Malaysia based on our long term trustful partnerships with our customers”.
“We are delighted to have Marc joining, as he brings a wealth of experience in commercial vehicles and is aligned to our growth ambition for Malaysia” said Harald Behrend, Chief Executive of Hap Seng Automotive Division.
