Monacchio joined Volvo Penta as U.S. marketing manager in 1996. Most recently he was vice president of aftermarket and customer support for North America.

“Ed’s experience and skill set fits perfectly with our ongoing efforts to further develop and strengthen the distribution network,” Volvo Penta of the Americas president Ron Huibers said in a statement. “His strong background in marketing, business and dealer development and customer support make him the ideal person to ensure we achieve these strategic objectives.”

Barsalini will join Volvo Penta Region Americas on May 19 as general manager for South America, reporting to Huibers. The company said he will provide direction and support for the day-to-day activities for Volvo Penta marine, industrial and aftermarket businesses and will lead the South American team.

His experience and leadership will help sustain the growth that the South American team is delivering across marine and industrial segments.”
