Long-term Holden employee Marc Ebolo has been appointed managing director of Holden New Zealand.
He replaces Kristian Aquilina, who was appointed as Holden’s director -marketing, in April this year, overseeing both Australia and New Zealand’s marketing strategy.
Holden New Zealand said Marc Ebolo joined Holden in 2001, and has worked across sales, marketing and distribution, both locally in Australia and regionally for General Motors.
"Holden’s New Zealand operations has experienced great success in the past few years and Marc’s appointment will continue to build momentum for the Holden brand and sales in New Zealand,” said Mark Bernhard, Holden Chairman and Managing Director.
Marc Ebolo had returned to Australia in 2017 as general manager - revenue strategies, from a posting where he managed General Motor's regional operations across Malaysia, Brunei and Fiji.
Mark Bernhard said Marc Ebolo's experience in executing sales strategies, and his regional experience made him an exceptional choice to lead Holden's New Zealand team, and to work with the Holden and Isuzu Trucks dealer network to achieve further success.
“I’m excited to showcase our range – the best we’ve ever had – and continue to grow sales, particularly in the key SUV, LCV and passenger segments,” Marc said.
