Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler Truck AG, has announced the appointment of Muthumaruthachalam C, as President and Chief of Operations and Logistics, effective August 15, 2024. Muthumaruthachalam will succeed Anshum Jain, who left the orgaisation in April 2024.

Muthumaruthachalam has been with DICV since 2009, starting his career during the early project phase as a specialist in heavy-duty truck project management.

He returned to DICV in March 2020 as Head of Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Since March 2023, he has led the newly-formed ‘Procurement and Supply Chain Management’ organisation as President and Chief Supply Chain Officer. His extensive global experience and deep understanding of process management have been key to his success within the Daimler Truck organisation, the company shared.

Satyakam Arya, Managing Director and CEO of Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, stated, "Muthu is a DICV veteran and has been with our organization since we set up our greenfield in Oragadam. I am pleased to see him assume his new role within our organisation. His proven experience and leadership within the Daimler Truck organisation in India and overseas, in areas of procurement, supply chain management and quality make him the right choice to drive our operations and logistics business functions, which comprise the largest portion of our workforce. His contributions towards skillfully managing our supply chain and procurement in the most challenging times is his greatest asset.”

In his new role, Muthumaruthachalam will be a member of DICV’s core leadership team, reporting to Satyakam Arya.

He will be responsible for ensuring seamless operational workflows, enhancing manufacturing processes, and driving the efficiency and effectiveness of truck operating systems.

Commenting on his appointment, Muthumaruthachalam said, "I feel honored as I assume my new role in DICV at a time when we are building the foundation for a new era of commercial mobility. My journey with Daimler Truck and DICV has been long, rich with learnings and incredibly fulfilling.
