CNH Industrial has announced the appointment of Alan Berger, formerly the senior vice president for technology at Volvo Construction Equipment, as its chief technical officer for product development within its construction and agricultural equipment divisions.

As part of this role, from September 2017, Berger will join the CNH Industrial’s executive council, the decision-making at the head of the group that is responsible for reviewing the operating performance of the businesses and making decisions on certain operational matters.

Berger is a Bachelor and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh, USA, and holds 21 US patents. He also has an MBA from J.L Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, Illinois, USA.

Berger had an earlier brush with CNH Industrial at outset of this career, when in 1996 became chief engineer for the Case Construction, before it merged with New Holland to form CNH Global in 1999.

Berger later worked with Ingersoll Rand and then joined Volvo CE as part of its acquisition of the former company in 2007. He subsequently became Volvo CE’s vice president of engineering for road machinery, and then its vice president of advanced engineering.

He finally took over as senior vice president for technology, looking after Volvo CE’s entire product development platform, in 2011. In all, he has over 20 years of international product development experience in the off-highway vehicle industry.
