Daimler Trucks appoints new Chief Developer

The Daimler Board of Management has announced that Sven Ennerst will take on global responsibility for the development department at Daimler Trucks effective from August 1, 2013. Ennerst will succeed Georg Weiberg, who will retire after working for Daimler for more than 40 years.

“Thanks to his great technological expertise, extensive range of personal contacts throughout the world and outstanding knowledge of different cultures, it was possible to closely integrate the global development department under his leadership. Georg Weiberg’s decisions and strategic projects have helped to bring Daimler Trucks to the top,” said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, the Daimler Board of Management member responsible for Daimler Trucks and Daimler Buses.

“I wish my colleague Sven Ennerst every success in his new position at Daimler Trucks,” Dr Bernhard said. “As Head of the Strategic Future Truck Program, he successfully rolled out the heavy-duty truck platform, which encompasses the new Actros and Antos trucks and the Arocs construction site vehicle. He was thus responsible for the market launch of an all-new generation of vehicles that has become the benchmark for customers. I’m convinced that he will enable the Daimler Trucks’ development unit to make further progress.”
