Skipper team welcomes Vin Brown

AMCAP would like to welcome Vin Brown to the Skipper Transport Parts division, based in our Victorian branch.

Vin is no stranger to the truck and trailer business having previously worked as National Fleet Parts Manager reporting to Mike Marmo, Skipper Division Manager, at Iveco. During his time at IVECO, Vin successfully developed a National Fleet Parts Program into a major contributing factor to the overall parts business. Vin joins us at a time when the Skipper business is expanding and AMCAP is looking to explore new prospects in the transport parts industry.

As Business Development Manager, Vin is responsible for identifying new market opportunities for existing transport parts products and sourcing new products to add value to the Skipper brand across the growing national business.  With more than 40 years’ experience in the parts industry, focusing on truck, trailer and consumables at International/Iveco, K&S Freighter and Maxi Parts, Vin’s significant expertise backed by a strong marketing and sales background will provide a strong addition to the existing team.

Born and bred in Victoria, Vin is married with four children and one grandchild.  “Now that the kids are all grown up, I enjoy socialising with my wife, surfing and playing football with the Mornington Peninsular Raiders – it’s my adrenalin rush!”, Vin said.

Fun fact about Vin.  He played Super Rules Football with the Victorian state team at the end of year State of Origin carnivals and has been awarded All Australian on six occasions, and twice won best and fairest in the carnival, once in the over 60’s.  Did we just give Vin’s age away?!
