MAN has appointed Daniel Holbein as its new UK head of vans.

In his new role, which begins on 1 April, the firm says Holbein will have overall responsibility for the MAN TGE product range, vehicle sales, volume planning and all van operations within the UK, reporting directly to company managing director Thomas Hemmerich.

Holbein started his career with MAN in 2011, and until 2015 he held key management positions in sales and pricing strategy in Germany with global responsibilities.

In 2016 he became head of price and margin for the truck segment within MAN’s truck sales division based in Munich, a position he holds today.

Hemmerich said: “I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel will take on responsibility for the MAN TGE Van range here in the UK and in doing so join the board of directors.

“Daniel has been with MAN since 2011 in a number of senior sales roles and his knowledge of the brand, experience in sales, passion and drive will be invaluable. We all look forward to welcoming him.”
