Daimler Truck CEO will take on finance role temporarily

Daimler Truck CEO Martin Daum will temporarily add the CFO role as the global truck maker’s Supervisory Board seeks a permanent replacement for the recently deceased Jochen Goetz.

The sudden death of the 52-year-old Goetz “leaves the company and its employees dismayed,” Daimler said in a news release Monday. No cause of death was announced following his passing on Aug. 5.

“The large number of expressions of grief and condolence underlines how closely the former CFO of Daimler Truck was associated with the company, its employees, and partners,” the release said.

Daum is the chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck Holding AG. It became a stand-alone company after splitting off from Daimler AG in December 2021.

“This interim solution will be supported by a strong financial organization of the company,” Daimler’s statement said.

The Supervisory Board decided to immediately begin the search for Goetz’s permanent successor.
