Volvo Trucks has promoted Roger Alm to the position of president as the long tenure of Claes Nilsson nears an end.

Alm has also become a member of Sweden-based Volvo Group's executive board of directors and replaces Nilsoon in both positions, as the former president of Volvo Trucks retires before 2019.

Having worked his way up the ranks at Volvo, Alm started his career with the carmaker in 1989 as a design engineer. During close to 30 years with the automative giant, Alm worked as head of operations in Latin America and senior vice president of Volvo Trucks' northern European arm.
