Volvo Group Australia has announced the appointment of Mark Fryer as its new Director of Product & Industry at Volvo Bus Asia Pacific, effective June 19, 2023.

Based in Brisbane, Australia, Fryer will work within the Volvo Bus Asia Pacific Management Team across Australia and Asia.

“Mark has brought a unique skillset to our team, which has put us in a good position to be leading the way in the electric bus market in Australia.” Volvo Bus Australia General Manager Mitch Peden told ABC.  

“We’d like to thank Mark for his contribution to the Volvo Bus Australia team to date – and we look forward to continuing working with him in his new role within the Asia Pacific team.”
