Martin Weissburg took over as president of Volvo Construction Equipment at the start of this year from Volvo Financial Services (VFS).

He joined the group in 2005 to head-up the North American arm of VFS – Volvo’s captive finance division – and moved up to become president of the business in 2010, as well as a member of the group’s executive team. In November last year he was named president of Volvo Construction Equipment, to take over from Pat Olney on his departure from the company at the end of 2013.

In this exclusive video interview, which is also published in the October issue of iC, he talks about the state of global markets, the company’s acquisition of Terex trucks, its development of multiple brands and its approach to equipment rental among other topics.
