Daimler Commercial Vehicles Thailand Ltd (DCVT), under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia, on Wednesday announced changes in its senior management line-up.

Under the new management structure, Sascha Ricanek, currently chief executive officer of DCVT, will take a new position at the Daimler Trucks Asia headquarters in Kawasaki, Japan, from September 1.

As the CEO of DCVT, he has overseen the growth of its local dealership network, the improved availability of customer service solutions, and the expansion of DCVT’s product portfolio. His expertise in both engineering and business management will support Daimler Trucks Asia’s product line-up strategy in crucial international markets, including Thailand, the company said.

On September 1, Ricanek will be succeeded by Stefano Giordani, currently managing director of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services España (Spain). 

Since joining Daimler in 2005, Giordani has developed a solid background in business development, and sales and marketing for financial services as well as trucks and buses in various countries from Europe to Asia. He will bring his keen customer focus to DCVT to further strengthen its presence in Thailand’s fast-growing commercial vehicles sector, the company said.

DCVT was established in August 2016 as the official distributor of Fuso and, since 2018, Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles. The company is headquartered in the Sathorn area of Bangkok and has a parts distribution centre in the outer Bangkok area.

As an integral part of Daimler Trucks Asia headquartered in Japan and its South East Asia regional centre in Singapore. DCVT offers a product portfolio which includes trucks and buses for the Thailand market.
