Comments to the appointment of Friedrich Baumann (MAN)
«Both Friedrich Baumann and Göran Nyberg are proven commercial vehicle experts with extensive experience and a clear understanding of customer needs in the transport industry. The change in personnel means that our international group of strong commercial vehicle brands is growing ever closer together. MAN, Navistar and thus the TRATON Group as a whole will benefit from this change and exchange of experience”, commented Christian Levin, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of MAN Truck & Bus SE and CEO of TRATON SE.
Alexander Vlaskamp, new CEO of MAN Truck & SE since the end of November, added: «I would like to thank Göran for his successful work over the past years. Under his leadership, the launch of our new truck generation was a real customer success. Göran has also successfully managed the realignment of the Sales division. I am looking forward to working with Friedrich Baumann. With his international experience, strategic understanding, and indepth industry knowledge, he will provide valuable impetus to our new Executive Board team».
