  • Overview

    Navistar - Driven By Uptime. Our focus is delivering Trucks and Buses that carry on the promise of being on the road, and staying there.


    Why Navistar?

    • Over the past two years Navistar has redesigned most of the International Truck vehicle line-up, including the LT Series and RH Series tractors, HX Series vocational truck, and soon to be introduced HV Series and MV Series trucks.  The company is witnessing market share growth in several of its core segments, a testament to the customer acceptance of its new products
    • Product quality and uptime has been a strong and ongoing focus across the entire company.  Navistar has introduced a number of new powertrains to its truck line-up, including the International® A26 12.4L diesel.  
    • Our alliance with Volkswagen Truck and Bus increases our global scale, strengthens our competitiveness, and provides our customers with expanded access to cutting-edge products, technology and services.
    • Superior parts and services offering throughout the country via our distribution channel
    • Best in class non-asset based products that enable our customers to not only create value for themselves but for their customers as well 

    This multifaceted Associate Product Manager role is equivalent to being the chief-of-staff for a Senior Product Manager who’s responsible for a significant portion of Navistar’s global aftermarket parts portfolio totaling $2.5B annually.  This position is accountable for a variety of product management type responsibilities including product promotions, project management, negotiating, market and customer analysis, supplier meetings and dealer/customer support.  This role requires daily interaction and support of Navistar’s regional and national account based sales teams.  This opportunity provides cross-functional exposure and the ability to operate as an integral part of a highly motivated and successful team.  As an Associate Product Manager, you will truly have the pulse of a critical piece of Navistar’s Parts business and become a trusted adviser to strategic decision makers.
