The appointment comes following the promotion and relocation of Iveco’s previous head of operations
Iveco has announced the appointment of Glen Dyer as its new head of operations across Australia and New Zealand.
Before joining Iveco in early 2021 as its head of sales and product, he worked in both Australia and the United Kingdom and held executive positions in the commercial sales and financial services division of another prominent commercial vehicle manufacturer.
Iveco says that during Dyer’s time at the company, he helped Iveco successfully navigate the challenges of COVID, realign internal sales, support structures and allow it to better meet customer requirements while capitalising on emerging road transport industry trends.
As a member of Iveco’s senior management team, Dyer also played a role in guiding its Australia and New Zealand operations towards a full importation model.

Iveco says that this has led to a heightened industry uptake of its product line-up, most notably its daily range and its recently launched heavy-duty S-Way.
Dyer assumes the position after previous operations head Michael May was promoted and relocated to Italy to oversee the development of Iveco’s Green and Advance Transport Ecosystem (GATE) program.
Iveco says the program is an all-inclusive, pay-per-use formula for long-term rental of ‘green’ commercial vehicles designed to support customers transitioning to zero-emission mobility.
Dyer says he’s excited by the prospect of steering Iveco’s Australia and New Zealand operations into the future, especially given the rapidly changing face of the road transport industry and the opportunities that could present itself to Iveco.
“Iveco has gone through a profound transformation over the past few years, aiming at becoming the trusted partner of its customers throughout the vehicle’s lifecycle and beyond,” Dyer says.
“The benefits of the company’s new direction are now beginning to be seen by IVECO vehicle owners.
“We’re looking to grow this momentum further by leveraging our expertise in alternative fuels, propulsion systems and autonomous vehicle technologies, while making sure we continue to get the fundamentals such as service, parts and other aftersales functions right for customers.
“I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for IVECO. We will work hard to build on Michael May’s strong foundations and ensure that we deliver for our customers.”
