Paccar has named Kevin Baney as the new general manager of Kenworth Truck Company and Paccar vice president.
Baney comes to the top slot at KW after serving for nearly three years as Kenworth's assistant general manager for sales and marketing. Prior to that role, he was Kenworth chief engineer for nearly five years.
“These are exciting times in the commercial vehicle industry with the level of new technologies being developed,” said Baney. “We have the best customers, employees and dealers and I look forward to the new role as Kenworth’s general manager.”
Baney has been with Paccar for 25 years. He began his Paccar career as a design engineer, and has held positions of increasing responsibility in engineering at sister firm Peterbilt Motors Company in Denton, Texas, before joining Kenworth in 2012 as chief engineer.
Baney is based at Kenworth Truck Company headquarters in Kirkland, Washington.
Baney holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from LeTourneau University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of North Texas. He attended the Stanford Executive Program in 2015, and is a licensed professional engineer.
