Good dunking

Oct. 13, 2014

With the warmth of a Carolina late summer day standing in for the sojourn in a sauna that might have served as the warm-up had he accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge while visiting his native Sweden, Goran Nyberg, Volvo Trucks president of North American sales & marketing, swiftly completed his charitable deed outside the OEM’s Greensboro headquarters.

Unflinched by the icy experience, he remarked in a video post­ed online that it was “Nice and cool!” before throwing down the bracing gauntlet to one of his colleagues. Nyberg urged Stephen Roy, Mack Trucks president of North American sales & marketing, to next take the challenge in the battle against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
