HARTMUT SCHICK TO LEAD DAIMLER TRUCKS ASIA
Hartmut Schick (56) will be the new Head of Daimler Trucks Asia (DTA). He will succeed Marc Llistosella (50), who will leave the company by March 31, 2018 in order to pursue new career challenges. DTA is the Asian subsidiary of Daimler Trucks and Buses, the world’s leading manufacturer of trucks and buses, and includes the Japanese Mitsubishi Fuso Trucks and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) and the Indian Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV).
Schick has been Head of the Daimler Buses division and CEO of EvoBus GmbH since January 1, 2009. Under his leadership, the division has developed into the world’s most profitable bus manufacturer and at the same time, as the only bus manufacturer that continues to produce in Germany. In addition, Daimler Buses further extended its technological leadership in the last years, not least due to the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus, the world’s first city bus to operate in autonomous mode.
Hartmut Schick joined the Central Research Department of the then Daimler-Benz AG in 1986 after graduating in mechanical engineering. After a period working in car production at the Sindelfingen plant, Schick joined the Marketing department of DASA in Munich in 1990. He was appointed Head of the Corporate Secretariat and Head of the Office of the Chairman of the Board of Management in 1993. In 1995, he returned to Stuttgart and took charge of the Chairman’s Planning Staff. Two years later, he was given the task of establishing the Mercedes-Benz plant in Juiz de Fora (Brazil) as Head of Production and Logistics. From 2002 onwards, he headed the global communications of the Daimler Group.
