TRATON SE is reorganizing its Board of Management team.

This was announced by the company on Tuesday following a meeting of the Supervisory Board in Munich.

“Andreas Renschler has made a significant contribution to the successful course taken by TRATON. After the successful IPO in Frankfurt and Stockholm he laid together with the Board of Management the foundation for the company’s future-oriented position and ensured that the company, with a strong network of strategic partners, has access to all the relevant markets,” stated the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of TRATON SE, Hans Dieter Pötsch.
