Paul Glavac
Paul Glavac has seen Western Star and MAN trucks grow market share substantially and he is confident that the commitment shown by the team behind the brands will ensure increased sales continue.
As Managing Director of Western Star Trucks Australia/MAN Automotive Imports, Paul has had extensive experience in the automotive industry - from his qualifications and performance with a leading vehicle importer, then to a role as Chief Financial Officer with a chemical company which introduced him to the truck business after he was headhunted by Brambles Industrial Services to take up a high profile commercial role.
The company gave Paul an opportunity to move into the fleet business, gaining extensive exposure to heavy vehicles and operations across a broad spectrum of applications. In his role Paul is highly regarded for his no-nonsense approach to business and for exhibiting a personal approach to every aspect of his activities.
Paul was appointed to the role of Managing Director of the Transpacific Industries Group Commercial Vehicles division in July 2004, responsible for Western Star Trucks Australia and MAN Automotive Imports, and continues to be a people person with a reputation for being hands-on - a fact that is somewhat unusual among the ranks of many in the trucking industry's high profile roles. At truck shows, open days, product demonstration events and charity fundraisers you will more often find him at the front line, instantly approachable and genial with a sense of humour and a genuine interest in what is happening around him.
It is this approach that makes him stand apart from others, but he is acutely aware that business is exactly that, business, and for a company to be successful there is a real need to concentrate on growing success in what is a highly competitive world and not to waver from striving to achieve all-important goals.
"This is a people business and to be successful you have to have highly professional persons who are passionate about what they do. Western Star and MAN people are exactly that, passionate about the products, technical and professional and we are very fortunate to have such a team in place," Paul says with conviction.
...
We aim to continue this in all aspects of our business and what we do tomorrow will be nothing like we did yesterday, ensuring the value we place on our customers is always at the forefront of what we do," Paul says.
...
We are very growth focussed and the company is full of doers who aim to offer the best in every aspect of the business," Paul says proudly.
As one can imagine Paul Glavac travels extensively overseeing the operations of the Western Star and MAN brands in both the Australian and New Zealand markets and while there is little time for leisure activities, he has found a way to relax that is also growing in popularity in the truck world.
"I have a Harley Davidson and really enjoy riding when I have the opportunity to do so, I find it offers absolute stress relief and gives you a new lease on life. Actually I am passionate about cycle riding and hope to bike through the US and Canada again. I also like to take time out at a holiday retreat on the beach with my wife but there is not a lot of spell time," Paul smiles. In the meantime you will find Paul working closely with his team and customers on a very personal level, with time for all while always keeping his eye on the business ball.
