Meet new QDS manager Boyd McKenna

NEW QDS Capalaba branch manager Boyd McKenna wanted to be a truck driver when he was young.

"I grew up around trucks, dad owned trucks in Sydney," he said.

But he wasn't allowed to be a truck driver, he told Big Rigs last week.

Instead he fell into the transport industry when he was 30.

"After school I probably had about 30 different jobs," he said.

"I was in hospitality and a forklift driver."

He comes to QDS with eight years industry experience mainly in Mack and American make trucks.

He was the branch manager of Gleeman truck parts in Rocklea.

But he has lived in the Redlands for the past eight years with his partner Michelle, daughter Tayla, 11, and son Corey, 2.

Now he is excited about his new venture at QDS.

"It's great, really good, they've got good a good crew and good management structure," he said.

"I'm looking forward to growing the business and working with the team."

And his favourite truck?

"I'm a Mack man. My experience is the older R model CH Macks," he said.
