Chris Newitt ~ Silver Member of the Automotive 30% Club
“At Scania, everything starts and ends with our people. Creating an equitable and inclusive culture for our business is essential. It’s well documented that the heavy vehicle sector is male-dominated, which is why I’m so proud, and it’s so important for me to be a member of the Automotive 30% Club.

Whether you work for us, with us or just interact with us, I’m committed to help inspire, nurture and engage the best female talent to take our business and the wider automotive industry to the next level. Our purpose is to “drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system”, and that change will only happen with the dedication and expertise of our amazing people. We are in a privileged position as the premium brand in the heavy vehicle sector, which means people look to us as a leader who will make a positive difference to the industries we operate in. If we can help our business to attract and develop the best talent to take the automotive industry, as a whole, to the next level then it can only be for the benefit of everyone. This is why becoming a member of the Automotive 30% Club is an important step for us. It signifies the importance we are placing on equity and Inclusion, and gives us the opportunity to learn and improve with help from the other members..”
