Paul Dorion Named Volvo Rents Regional VP for Canada

Volvo Rents, a worldwide provider of small-to-medium sized construction equipment, announces 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.

“With Paul’s extensive knowledge of not only the industry but the market, his role in developing the brand across Canada will be key in our overall growth strategy and introducing our concept to new territories and customers,” said Barry Natwick, chief operating officer of Volvo Rents, which operates more than 130 rentals stores throughout North America. 

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

Eager to begin developing in new markets around the country, Dorion is looking forward to “bringing Volvo Rents to wherever the customers are.”
