Marc Llistosella, former president and CEO of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation and head of Daimler Trucks Asia, will join Einride’s board of directors.
Llistosella, also an investor in Einride, will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from leading roles in the automotive sector, including at Daimler Trucks Asia and Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation, where he successfully transformed and repositioned the Fuso brand as a leader in the electrification of commercial vehicles.
“Marc is passionate about transforming road freight transport and developing a safe, cost efficient and sustainable transportation system. His track record of building commercially successful businesses around electric vehicles will be a great contribution to Einride, as we continue to scale-up the company. Llistosella’s prime focus will be to secure the scaling of supply of hardware,” said Robert Falck, founder and CEO of Einride.
“Einride is the next step of automotive evolution and a dream come true for me. It combines cutting-edge technologies in electrification and autonomous systems and raises the bar for the entire transportation industry,” commented Llistosella.
Llistosella joined Daimler in 1995. In 2006 he was appointed to lead the company into the Indian market. He later became CEO and managing director of Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV), and built Daimler’s operations in the country. In April 2015, he was appointed president and CEO of Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) and head of Daimler Trucks Asia.
