In another positive piece of news for Yutong and its Australian distributor VDI, VDI Australia has announced that it has appointed Sara Clark to its national sales and marketing manager position.
The well-known industry name will bolster VDI’s ranks as it continues to grow its presence in Australia.
VDI managing director Peter Woodward says Clark’s appointment is a significant addition to the VDI senior leadership team.
“The leadership of VDI’s national sales operations is at a critical phase as we continue executing our strategic imperatives,” Woodward told ABC.
“We anticipate continued growth of the brand in Australia as VDI leads the charge with the bus industry’s transition towards electrification.”
Clark’s appointment underscores VDI’s strategic focus and commitment to its zero-emissions model range.
This includes the addition of the D7E and C12E models and the commencement of VDI’s Brisbane production facility where Yutong’s E12 electric low-floor city bus is currently being assembled under VDI’s local content program.
“Sara comes to us with extensive experience in the Australian automotive industry,” Woodward says.
“She brings expertise in manufacturing, logistics, wholesale and retail areas of the Australian automotive market, encompassing passenger, commercial, heavy duty and bus.
“Her proven track record, knowledge and industry reputation align strongly with VDI’s corporate values. Sara will contribute strongly to this exciting phase of VDI’s journey.”
Clark says the growth of the Yutong bus model range in Australia has been strategically oriented and has solidified VDI’s position as the fastest growing bus brand in Australia.
She says through its customer centric planning and investments in company owned and operated outlets nationally, VDI has proven to be a trusted and reliable business partner here for the long term.
“Yutong is already recognised locally as a leader in new energy buses who continue to produce innovative and fit-for-purpose mobility solutions for Australian conditions,” Clark told ABC.
“It’s really an exciting time to be joining such a forward-thinking organisation.”
