As general manager of Peterbilt and vice president of PACCAR, Jason Skoog is a fresh face who possesses deep industry knowledge. He says what he likes about the business is, at the end of the day, it is still a people business, and the foundation of the relationships is trust. “If a customer buys a Peterbilt,” he states, “it’s got to perform like a Peterbilt.” While Peterbilt currently has mostly diesel powertrain vehicles, its future lies in electric trucks. Remote diagnostics is also the future (and the present), and that’s where PACCAR Solutions Service Management fits in. It’s a data-driven portal that aims to enhance the service process. All the trucks Peterbilt sells won’t mean a thing, Skoog insists, if customers can’t keep them on the road.
