A 20-year member of the Volvo Trucks North America family, Long brings a depth of experience that includes engineering, product planning, and marketing.

In his new role, Long will work with Volvo Trucks sales managers and dealer groups to deliver a broad range of diverse specification requirements in the western U.S region.

Long graduated from Bradley University with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology and holds an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He will be based in California.
