Friedrich Baumann New Head of Sales and Customer Solutions at MAN


Friedrich Baumann is due to become a member of the Executive Board of MAN Truck & Bus SE in the same function.

New Executive Member for Sales and Customer Solutions

Both Friedrich Baumann and Göran Nyberg are proven commercial vehicle experts with extensive experience and a clear understanding of customer needs in the transport industry. The change in personnel means that MAN international group of strong commercial vehicle brands is growing ever closer together. MAN, Navistar and thus the Traton Group as a whole will benefit from this change and exchange of experience.

Alexander Vlaskamp, new CEO of MAN Truck & SE since the end of November, would like to thank Göran for his successful work over the past years. Under his leadership, the launch of MAN new truck generation was a real customer success. Göran has also successfully managed the realignment of the Sales division and is looking forward to work with Friedrich Baumann. With his international experience, strategic understanding, and in-depth industry knowledge, he will provide valuable impetus to the new Executive Board team.

Baumann joined the Navistar executive team in April 2018. Initially responsible for corporate strategy and planning, he soon was named head of the after sales organisation, overseeing parts and service, uptime and warranty. In his most recent role, Baumann restructured Navistar’s commercial business into one integrated organisation. Baumann began his career with Daimler Trucks North America in 1993. He has held various executive management positions with Daimler Trucks North America and other units of Daimler AG in procurement, used trucks and remanufacturing. Before joining Navistar, Baumann was the head of aftermarket at Daimler Trucks North America and member of the operating committee.
