Collin Shaw has been named president and chief operating officer of the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), the commercial vehicle supplier division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA).
Shaw, who takes the helm at HDMA effective immediately, brings 15 years of experience in the mobility industry from the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors. He has worked for global companies and brands, with roles in marketing, communications, strategy, digital solutions and business development. At FCA (now Stellantis), Shaw served as global brand manager for Jeep and served in Chrysler’s Leadership Development Program. While at WABCO, he partnered with heavy-duty OEMs to develop advanced technology roadmaps. Most recently, Shaw was responsible for North American business strategy at ZF Group.
“Over the next 10 years, new technologies that address electrification, autonomy and the internet of things will transform the heavy-duty mobility industry,” says MEMA President and CEO Bill Long. “Finding a person with a diverse background across multiple sectors in mobility was a key goal in our candidate search. With his unique perspective and skillset, coupled with an already high-performing team at HDMA, Collin will support our supplier members, move the industry forward and keep HDMA at the forefront of policy decisions.”
“The suppliers and manufacturers within the heavy-duty vehicle industry are the backbone of innovation and technology, transforming how goods, people and services are transported,” says Shaw. “Now, more than ever, vehicle suppliers need a powerful voice in Washington and a platform for industry dialogue and change. In the wake of worker shortages, inflation and the transformation in technologies to achieve zero emissions, I am committed to working with the HDMA Board of Directors and staff to build on the strong tradition of our association.”
