Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) will soon make a leadership change. Marc Llistosella, Head of Daimler Trucks Asia and president and CEO of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation (MFTBC), the parent company of MFTA, has announced that Jecka Glasman will succeed Mr. Todd Bloom as MFTA’s president & CEO, effective July 1.
“The skill and experience Todd Bloom has gained in the last five years at the helm of MFTA will be used on a number of international assignments for MFTBC,” Llistosella said. “At the same time, MFTA will benefit from the strong, process-focused and fresh, objective viewpoint brought to its leadership by Jecka Glasman. Together, we will continue to work to build the North American market and establish the FUSO brand as a major player in the medium-duty truck segment.”
Glasman joined MFTBC in November 2014 and has served as MFTA’s business development director, where, in addition to her normal duties, she has been able to work alongside Todd Bloom to help ensure a smooth transition in leadership and continuity of a strategic approach to the market. Prior to joining FUSO, Glasman served as senior vice-president for Comverse Inc, managing large-scale global operations and holding various management positions in sales, customer service, and business operations.
