Volvo Rents, has announced the appointment of Paul Dorion as regional vice president for Canada.

In his new role, Dorion will be responsible for continuing Volvo Rents expansion throughout Canada. Taking the company’s Northern growth into Alberta and Ontario, Dorion will be filling the gaps and expanding East and West across Canada.

A Canada native, born and raised in Montreal, Dorion is more than familiar with the territory and what it takes to grow a brand nationally.  In his previous position with another major equipment rental company, Dorion served as Vice President and General Manager for Canada, carrying out similar responsibilities to those in his new role with Volvo Rents—expanding the region to serve the customer base.

Expanding on the 12 locations currently operating out of two Canadian provinces, Dorion will play a pivotal role at Volvo Rents’ new Canadian headquarters in Edmonton.

“Already, this has been such a natural transition,” said Dorion.  “Allowing me to employ my existing industry knowledge and experience in developing national brands in Canada, this position provides a niche for my expertise and strengths.
