MaxiTRANS Australia has announced the appointment of Mario Colosimo to the role of General Manager of its Freighter brand. The appointment comes off the back of a strong year for Freighter trailers.
“Effective immediately, Mario joins MaxiTRANS following a long and successful career within the trailer industry,” said MaxiTRANS Managing Director, Michael Brockhoff. “He has a lifetime’s experience in the design, manufacture and sales of trailers and trailer components, most recently holding a senior management position with a leading component supplier.”
“Mario is highly regarded for his wealth of experience and will work closely with our customers, dealers and engineers to ensure that Freighter continues to deliver innovation, high payload and high resale value.”
Mario’s principal responsibilities will include product development, sales management and distribution of Freighter products.
Speaking on his appointment, Mario said his first priority will be to meet with and listen to Freighter’s customers. “While Freighter already has a well-deserved and strong reputation within the transport community, its customers are its core,” he said. “I look forward to using my knowledge to enhance the Freighter product range and the ownership experience of its customers.”
Mario said he will continue to maintain an ongoing involvement in regulatory development with industry associations and road authorities, as he believes this will be of great assistance in his new role. “Given the complexity of both State and Federal regulations, the growth in demand for PBS solutions and the emergence of aerodynamics as a new efficiency driver, I see maintaining a close involvement with both industry associations and the regulators as enhancing Freighter’s ability to supply its customers with the optimum operational equipment.”
