A Scania spokesman said it was now recruiting for a successor to the post and an announcement would follow in due course.
Hay has worked for Scania for more than 30 years, with roles in the dealer network, at importer level and at Scania’s headquarters operation in Sweden.
His dealer career included appointments as MD for the former Scantruck operation and as regional executive director for Scania South East.
In 2009, he moved to Scania GB’s Milton Keynes headquarters to take up the role of sales director.
From there, Hay transferred to Scania AB to become vice president of truck sales and he was appointed MD for Scania GB in September 2018.
Hay said: “I have been extremely fortunate to have worked for Scania for the majority of my career and will certainly miss my colleagues and the many friends I have made along the way.
“However, the time feels right for me to move on, as I have decided to make a lifestyle change which I believe will be in the best interests of myself and my family.”
