Daimler Group has appointed Karl Deppen as the new member of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG. He takes charge on 1 December 2021 succeeding Hartmut Schick.

Martin Daum, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG, said, "On behalf of the entire Board of Management and Supervisory Board, I would like to thank Hartmut Schick most sincerely for his outstanding commitment: over more than three decades, he has contributed to the successful development of our company in various positions. As head of our bus division and subsequently, as head of Daimler Trucks Asia, Hartmut Schick has shaped our commercial vehicle business with his integrative and motivating leadership skills for more than a decade. In addition, Hartmut was an early proponent of zero-emission vehicles."

Schick retires at the end of 2021 after serving Daimler for 35 years. He began his journey in the group by joining the research and development department of the former Daimler Benz AG in 1986 after graduating in mechanical engineering.

Karl Deppen joined the group in 1990 and held various management positions in purchasing and logistics until 2007, mostly with a focus on commercial vehicles. (MT)
