Markus Doerr is to be the newly created COO of StreetScooter, the soon-to-be divested electric vehicle manufacturing subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL. He was previously an auto industry consultant at global engineering, technical and environmental consultancy.
“I’m delighted that StreetScooter has been able to secure Markus Doerr for its management team,” said Jörg Sommer, CEO of StreetScoote. “He’s a proven automobile expert with a profound insight into international production processes and product development, procurement and supply chain management as well as quality management and internationalization strategy. Markus Doerr will be a real asset to our team and, as COO, support StreetScooter as it enters its next phase of expansion and growth.”
Doerr added: “The new challenge is very appealing. StreetScooter is a fascinating and innovative company, and it makes me proud to be part of the team at Germany’s leading electric commercial vehicle manufacturer. Climate protection in delivery operations and new concepts for last mile logistics are issues that are very important for the future and are certain to gain in significance. There is much for StreetScooter still to do here.”
