New Mack Sales Manager has the right pedigree


Zane Ryan has recently been appointed new National Sales Manager for Mack Trucks, effective from September 1st. A passionate Mack owner himself, Zane calls the new position, his ‘dream job’.

“Mack trucks play an important part in many New Zealand fleets,” said Zane. “Not just because Mack offers the highest horse power conventional truck on the market but because of the intergenerational customer loyalty that the brand inspires.

“Many of our customers have purchased Mack trucks over three or more generations and have made the unique Mack look and feel an important part of their own brand. There’s a certain American-style toughness that business owners and drivers are really drawn to.”

Zane has worked within Sime Darby Motors NZ for the past 21 years, most recently as National Sales Manager for Used Trucks NZ. “I see my appointment to this role as a privilege,” he continued. “The Mack team are caretakers of a brand that has been extremely successful over the last 50 years.”

Zane and his wife Nicky are proud owners of two Mack trucks, the most recent purchase being a 1945 EH (currently being restored) which will eventually take pride of place beside their 1984 R Model Mack.
