Isuzu Diesel has established a new Supply Chain Management Department and announced a pair of sales appointments, all of which the company said will help it better serve customers, dealers and distributors.
“To increase efficiency and effectiveness, we have aligned our Supply Chain Management Department with our Sales Department, streamlining communications and processing to deliver the utmost in customer service’” said Naoki Oka, executive vice president PowerTrain. “This is a time when product sourcing is being challenged in many directions.

On the sales side, the company announced the appointment of Bob Links, to executive manager, Sales. Now responsible for leading the sales department, Links has been a sales manager for Isuzu for more than 16 years and prior to that, was general manager of an engine distributor.
Isuzu has also appointed Scott Noyes to manager, Technical Sales, responsible for working with OEMs and distributors to help increase market share and collective sales goals. His experience includes sales and operational management positions at several companies, including Milton Cat.
