A new position created as part of a global restructure announced in January, Stannett will head up the Case IH and New Holland brands, taking over from Michele Lombardi.

CNH Industrial revealed changes to its organisational structure across the five segments of its operations, in a bid to "become closer to its customers, streamline decision-making processes and encourage faster and more market-focused innovations".

Prior to his appointment, Stannett was leading CNH Industrial’s captive finance business.

Stannett says the experience he gained from the role gives him a good knowledge of the local market.

"It’s certainly an advantage already knowing the Case IH and New Holland Agriculture teams and having those existing relationships, and I look forward to the opportunities this new structure offers both brands, our dealers and our customers.

"Taking a fresh look at our engagement with both dealers and customers will be a priority," he adds.

"The local Ag sector has had more than its share of challenges in recent times, so the time is right to refocus and re-invigorate our approach to products, services and support, together with business and network efficiencies.

"This restructure has come about because our industry is experiencing a period of accelerated change – automation and digital technology being key examples – so we need to make the changes that will secure our reputation for innovation and excellence into 2020 and beyond.

"I’m privileged to be leading this process across Australia and New Zealand for CNH Industrial and know that we have the teams in place with the knowledge, passion and foresight to make some real differences where it matters: innovative products and market-leading agricultural solutions."
