Mats Sköldberg is appointed Head of Technology at Volvo CE. Sköldberg was most recently Head of Technology for Volvo CE in China and has held a number of other senior technology roles in recent years.

In another change to the EMT, Scott Young is appointed Head of Sales Region North America. He was previously Head of the Volvo CE Uptime Center of Expertise and is said to have held a number of other roles in strategy, technology and other functions within the OEM.

Lastly, Jay Parker is appointed to the newly created EMT role of Head of Digital & IT. The creation of this new role at EMT level is said to reflect the importance of digital in the company’s overall transformation journey.

Volvo CE says that all three appointments will support the company’s “leading cultural, sustainable and technological transformation, while demonstrating the expertise and dynamism that is already embedded across all regions of Volvo CE”.

Melker Jernberg, Head of Volvo CE, says, “Our leadership team will be greatly strengthened with the addition of Scott, Mats and Jay, as they join during a significant time of change for our industry. With their diverse experience, cross-functional understanding and genuine passion, I have no doubt we will continue to lead our company´s sustainable transformation going forward.”
