Daimler Truck chief financial officer Jochen Goetz died “suddenly and unexpectedly in a tragic incident” at the weekend, the automaker said in a statement. 

Goetz (52) had been a Daimler Truck Holding management board member since July 2021, responsible for finance and controlling plus procurement of non-production materials and services, and for IT.

According to livemint.com, supervisory board head Joe Kaeser said: “Just a few days ago, [Goetz] convincingly and confidently presented the successful financial development of ‘his company’ to the supervisory board.”

Goetz spent his entire career at Daimler Group over 36 years, starting with Unimog.

He was credited for the successful spin-off of Daimler Truck Holding from today’s Mercedes-Benz Group in December 2021.
