VDL Bus & Coach's management team has been reinforced by Richard van den Dungen (50), who assumed the role of Commercial Director on 1 December 2022. Van den Dungen succeeds Marcel Jacobs in the position following his departure last June. As Commercial Director, Richard will focus on managing the commercial organisation, among other things with the aim of securing and improving long-term customer satisfaction. In doing so, he will be in close contact with VDL Bus & Coach's national sales organisations, which are now located in 13 countries.
In his last position as Sales Director for a Swiss listed organisation, he was responsible for all commercial activities there for about 10 years. As a result, he brings a lot of experience as a commercial executive to his new role at VDL Bus & Coach. Richard van den Dungen: "I am really looking forward to making a difference in the world of mobility together with customers, new colleagues and partners. VDL Bus & Coach is a great company with great products and has a strong
market position. It is my honour to further expand and strengthen this position through our commercial organisation.” VDL Bus & Coach consists of operating companies that are jointly active on the world market. Production takes place in Western Europe. VDL Bus & Coach is part of the VDL Groep, the international family-owned industrial company headquartered in Brainport region Eindhoven and is founded in 1953. VDL Groep operates in 19 countries.
