Cathay Cargo sees another management shake-up
Cathay Pacific has announced one of its management shake-ups, that will see two cargo roles ...
Deutsche Post-DHL subsidiary Street Scooter, an electric vehicle manufacturer, has appointed Joerg Sommer as its new chief executive.
Mr Sommer joins from US electric vehicle manufacturer Chanje where he served as chief operating officer. He will start his new role on 1 April.
He brings more than a decade’s experience in the electric vehicle market to the company and previously worked for traditional automobile manufacturers, including Audi, Renault, Daimler and Volkswagen.
Mr Sommer said: “I am honoured to be joining this daring team in Germany as we get ready to expand access to zero-emission transportation.”
His is not the only new appointment to the team, with former chief executive Achim Kampker taking over the reigns as chief innovation officer. Mr Kampker said over recent years the company had “achieved a great deal”, going from a start-up to Germany’s leading electric vehicle manufacturer.
“Above all, our recipe for success has always been our unconventional approach to our customers’ needs, innovative mobility concepts and a close exchange of ideas with the scientific community,” he added.
