“In George we gain a team member with strong experience and one that has already begun developing a great rapport with our customers," said Irizar Asia Pacific managing director Steve Heanes.

As an experienced commercial vehicle executive, Stavrinou assumes the role of sales manager for Irizar in VIC/TAS/SA/WA, it confirms.

Stavrinou joins the Irizar team having previously spent seven years with leading bus and truck manufacturer Iveco and he also has extensive experience in the vehicle instrumentation industry courtesy of a 13-year tenure with VDO Australia.

Additionally, Stavrinou holds tertiary qualifications in electronics and marketing - no doubt a boon for Irizar in Australia.

Stavrinou says he is excited at the prospect of working for a prominent and well-regarded brand within the bus and coach industry.

"I’ve had significant exposure to the sector in my previous roles and believe I have a good understanding of what’s most important to bus and coach clients," Stavrinou said.

"I know that Irizar has an excellent reputation in the industry and, although I’ve only been with the company a short time, I’m already seeing first-hand the brand’s strong customer support ethos and I hope to add to this in my role.

"The Australian bus and coach sector is a close-knit family and I’ll be working hard to grow my relationships with clients, giving them a reliable and hard-working touch point that will help them meet their vehicle needs," he added.

Commenting on the appointment, Irizar Asia Pacific managing director Steve Heanes says Stavrinou was a great fit for the company.

"I’ve been fortunate to work alongside George in a previous role and know that he is a fantastic fit for Irizar," Heanes explained.

"In George we gain a team member with strong experience and one that has already begun developing a great rapport with our customers; I’m confident he’ll perform extremely well in the role and deliver our partners in the southern and western states with a high level of service and attention that will exceed their expectations."

This year promises to be a big year for Irizar with a, "…milestone bus delivery" to occur in the coming weeks, the company confirms - and a number of initiatives to be rolled out as 2022 progresses.
