Moritz Bausch Personnel Manager, Development He has to determine whether applicants are merely just interested or if their hearts beat so passionately for Driving Performance that they are candidates for a job at Mercedes-AMG. Born in Ludwigsburg in direct proximity to the AMG headquarters, Moritz Bausch, now 28, grew up in the Munich area, but the ambitious handball athlete returned to Swabia for job training and his college education. Following his early experience in personnel management at a major German automotive supplier, he has been working in personnel support for the vehicle development department at Mercedes-AMG for three years. Mr. Bausch, as someone who works in personnel, don’t you view your co- workers who get to design the most amazing cars on a daily basis with a little envy? Not in the least. At Mercedes-AMG we’re a team, a racing team that needs many other people for the mechanics and engineers to be able to achieve the desired peak performance. In this respect, I’ve found the very task through which I can actively contribute to this company with maximum performance. And that’s the only thing that counts. I enjoy my job — never a dull moment. I can accomplish an unbelievable amount and have my share in the fact that these cars can be designed at all. In the vehicle development department, I manage about 450 employees. How would you describe to an outsider the special thrill you get working for an employer like Mercedes-AMG? We build vehicles that trigger strong emotions. It’s not just our customers who are fans of this brand — we employees also feel an incredible sense of excitement. Every day, every moment, surrounded by these spectacular, exceptional vehicles, that’s a lot of fun. If someone starts a V8 outside my office window, I get goosebumps. That’s the unique AMG feeling. The AMG feeling? That sounds like dynamism and speed. Let me explain with an example. When I’m sitting in a job interview, I always look to see if the candidate has the “racing gene”. We’re looking for employees who possess this spirit: Autonomy. Energy. Forward momentum. Strong experience and the capacity to want to tackle new things. 134
