DTFS says Johanning brings more than 20 years of experience to the role.

“He’s traveled the globe professionally, leaving his mark in multiple continents while furthering the mission of every team of which he’s been a part,” the company said in a release.

“Goetz’s career journey with Daimler began in 2001 as a strategic planning intern and in recent years his focus has been in credit operations, where his expertise in developing initiatives and plotting global strategy, as well as being a strong advocate in the areas of diversity and inclusion, have helped keep Daimler as a worldwide leader in Great Place to Work recognition.”
