Hino Australia has announced the resignation of its vice president of brand and franchise development, Bill Gillespie, due to personal reasons.

Gillespie joined Hino Australia in February 2014 following a 30-year career in strategy, network development, marketing and sales in the automotive industry.
 
Over the past seven years, the Hino business has grown with new model introductions and the sponsorship of the Supercars Championship, while sales have increased by over 28 per cent, the company notes.

"During my time with Hino, I have been based in Sydney and travelling regularly to Brisbane to spend time with my extended family," Gillespie says.

"Covid lockdowns and border closures have made me reassess the ongoing viability of this travel and ultimately played a large part in my decision to relocate back to Brisbane on a full-time basis."
 
"I am confident that Hino is well placed to take full advantage of the growing market and is in good hands."

Hino Australia president and CEO Sam Suda lauds Gillespie's contribution over the years.
 
"On behalf of Hino Australia, we would like to thank Bill for his dedication and leadership over the past seven years and wish him well in his future ventures," he says. 
 
Gillespie will leave Hino on Friday.
