Cheng Lu returns to Tusimple
Tusimple has announced the appointment of a permanent CEO and changes to its board of directors. Cheng Lu is returning to the company as CEO and president.
Lu previously served as CEO from September 2020 to March 2022, a period of important milestones for Tusimple including the launch of the autonomous freight network (AFN), key partnership deals and a successful IPO.
Lu replaces Ersin Yumer, Tusimple's executive vice president of operations, who has been serving as the interim CEO and president of the company until a permanent placement could be made. The board also has plans to appoint new independent board members as soon as possible. "I'm returning as Tusimple's CEO with a sense of urgency to put our company back on track," said Lu. " (cj)
