Communication at Navistar International

The Department of Communications functions as a business partner with the company's three major business units. Each plant has a communications manager who reports to both the plant manager and the corporate director of the Department of Communications. The role of the communications manager is to drive the message to the target audience. The manager uses different approaches depending on the audience and the direction of the message, whether it's heading up or down the corporate ladder or across business units.
