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 & Logistics, effective August 15, 2024. He succeeds Anshum Jain, who left the organisation in April 2024.

Muthumaruthachalam began his journey with DICV in 2009 as a specialist in heavy-duty truck project management, playing a pivotal role in the market launch of BharatBenz products in 2012.

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

Satyakam Arya, Managing Director & CEO of DICV, said, 'Muthu is a DICV veteran and has been with our organisation since we set up our greenfield facility in Oragadam. His proven experience and leadership within Daimler Truck 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 toward skillfully managing our supply chain and procurement in the most challenging times are his greatest asset.”

In his new role, Muthumaruthachalam will be a member of DICV’s core leadership team, reporting to Satyakam Arya. He will oversee the Operations & Logistics, Manufacturing Engineering, and Truck Operating System departments.

Muthumaruthachalam said, 'My journey with Daimler Truck and DICV has been long, rich with learnings, and incredibly fulfilling. I look forward to working closely with our talented teams, guiding them, and providing a conducive environment for them to thrive and succeed in our organisation.”
