Daimler Trucks Senior Executive Carlo Beltrame will retire at the end of the year

September 27, 2011

In a surprise move, Daimler Trucks Senior Executive Carlo Beltrame has announced he will retire at the end of 2011.

Beltrame was in charge of the Freightliner brand throughout 2011, overseeing the launch of the Coronado from the USA as well as the release of updated models at the 2011 Brisbane Truck Show, including the revitalised Argosy range.

"I take this opportunity to advise that I will be retiring from Daimler Trucks at the end of this year," Beltrame says.

"With close to 40 years experience in the heavy truck business, I reflect on a fortunate journey that has afforded me the opportunity to be engaged in a great industry with great people."

Before joining Daimler Trucks in 2006, Beltrame held a number of senior roles with Kenworth trucks, Detroit Diesel and Ford Heavy Vehicles, where he started as a graduate.

"In transition from full time work to pursue other interests and activities, I look forward to personally thanking the great people in the industry for their camaraderie and support over the years," he says.

"I leave reassured that the Daimler Truck business is in good shape for the future."

Mercedes-Benz Australia-Pacific Managing Director Dr Kolja Rebstock paid tribute to Beltrame’s work since joining the company.

"I’d like to thank Carlo for his service over the years with Daimler Trucks and wish him the best in his retirement," he says.

"Carlo played a key role in building a strong foundation for our revamped Daimler Truck business as we continue to grow in this market and we’ve been fortunate to utilise his experience during this important period."
