After nearly two decades overseeing quality and customer satisfaction for global automotive companies, Assaf Shevach has an intricate understanding of how process and technology can drive relationships between conscientious companies and their customers – and how loyal and engaged customers are key to crafting future-ready vehicles.

Assaf began his career in 1996 at Ford Australia, where he met Dennis Savic while serving as the region’s Quality Director. During 14 years in that role, he also worked in Thailand and Vietnam – establishing quality operations across Southeast Asia, India, Taiwan, China, and South Africa.

As well as quality and customer relationships, Assaf has a detailed knowledge of automotive manufacturing, warranty, engineering, sales and service management from his wide-ranging career at Ford. In 2020, he joined the leading semi-trailer and freight solutions business, MaxiTRANS, as the national quality manager.

Assaf has been a close supporter of Savic Motorcycles from the outset, and is looking forward to supporting our in-house quality engineers, Wayne and Jelena, in their development of watertight quality systems. “This is a young, energetic, passionate, and extremely talented crew having a go at something that will put Australia on the EV map,” says Assaf. “It’s a very exciting business, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
