Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has appointed Glen White to the role of vice president of Canadian on-highway sales, and Allison Athey to the role of vice president of Canadian vocational sales.

White is a longtime employee of Daimler companies, who started his career in 1997 as an industrial engineer at Freightliner's former St. Thomas, Canada assembly plant. He moved on to roles of increasing responsibility in manufacturing engineering, project controlling, engineering platform management, national account sales, and manufacturing controlling. He recently served as director of project strategy for DTNA.

Athey joins DTNA from Volvo Trucks, where she has worked for the past 13 years. She started her professional career as a chemist specializing in powertrain technology development, earning two patents for her work. She later joined product marketing, supporting multiple new product launches, and spending time working overseas to support international projects. Most recently, Athey served as a sales executive and liaison to dealerships located in the Northeastern U.S.

"We're thrilled to welcome Allison Athey to the Daimler Truck North America team, and to benefit from Glen White's vast company and industry knowledge," says David Carson, senior vice president of sales and marketing at DTNA. "With their combined experience and leadership, we're confident that our valued Canadian customers in both vocational and on-highway segments, and our strong Freightliner and Western Star dealers, will continue to receive the same dedicated support they expect and deserve."

White earned a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the Technical University of Nova Scotia. Athey earned bachelor's degrees in both chemical engineering and chemistry from Virginia Tech and an MBA from Hood College.
