Stuttgart (Germany) – The Supervisory Board and the Board of Management of Daimler AG have agreed on the future composition of the boards of Mercedes-Benz AG and Daimler Truck AG. Both Daimler boards plan to appoint Ola Källenius as future Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz AG. In this function, he will be responsible for the worldwide activities of the Cars & Vans divisions.
