Affalterbach. Home of Driving Performance.
AMG – these three letters stand worldwide for supreme automotive performance, exclusivity, efficiency and highly dynamic driving pleasure.
Mercedes‑AMG GmbH has recorded numerous successes in motor sport and through the development of unique road-going vehicles, thereby repeatedly underlining its position as a highly successful performance and sports car brand – and today this is truer than ever. Today, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz AG, the Affalterbach-based company represents the sporting spearhead of the Group.
Affalterbach is home to the management, administration, sales, development and design teams as well as AMG hand-crafted engine building. This is where AMG V8 engines are produced. Other engines are produced in plants within the Daimler Group: Kölleda (four-cylinder in-line engines) and Mannheim (V12 engines). Each engine is hand-assembled by a single engine builder at these sites according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy and provided with a badge hand-signed by the relevant technician.
Mercedes-AMG is today responsible for the development not only of the new eight-cylinder family of the Mercedes-Benz brand, but also of the AMG V8 engines.
Today the management of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH comprises the members Tobias Moers (Chairman) and Günter Ohler.
Our pole positions
The Management Team
Tobias Moers has been the CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH since October 2013.
The father of two was born in 1966 in Freiburg and studied mechanical engineering at the University of Applied Sciences of Offenburg (Dipl.-Wirtschaftsingenieur FH). Before joining Mercedes-AMG, he worked on developing a concept for an electric vehicle.

Tobias Moers has been with Mercedes-AMG since 1994 and up until 1999 was tasked with project management and the supervision of various development tasks. In 1999 he assumed overall responsibility for the main production series of the AMG brand. From 2002 he became the head of full-vehicle development and was responsible for the development of all Mercedes-AMG model series. In 2011 Tobias Moers was appointed a member of the executive board under the chairmanship of Ola Källenius. In 2013 Tobias Moers himself took over the chairmanship of the board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
His technical expertise and enthusiasm for high-performance automobiles have seen Tobias Moers contribute significantly to the success of the AMG high-performance brand and to the shaping of the products over the past 24 years: For example, in 2009 he set a milestone for the Affalterbach-based company with the SLS AMG supercar, the first complete vehicle to have been developed independently by Mercedes-AMG. The second independently produced model, the Mercedes-AMG GT, followed in September 2014. This was soon to be expanded into an AMG GT family consisting of nine models. In 2018 the GT family was set to receive another new member – the GT 4-Door Coupé.
In addition to the successive portfolio expansion of the AMG models, Tobias Moers is also contributing significantly towards promoting the brand. In addition, the globally successful commitment of Mercedes-AMG in GT3 and GT4 Motorsport continues to grow steadily under his leadership and is one of the most important customer sports programs. For Tobias Moers, standstill seems to be as foreign a concept as the notion of resting on the status quo that has been reached. The latest example and a highlight in the history of the company and the career of its CEO is the first hypercar – the Mercedes-AMG ONE.
Chief Financial Officer / CFO.
Günter Ohler has been the CFO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH since July 2015 and on the executive board since April 2018.
After studying banking, Günter Ohler took a master’s degree (Dipl. Wi.-Ing.) in industrial engineering at the University of Karlsruhe. In 1998 he joined the Daimler Group as a trainee in the International Junior Research Group.

As commercial manager from 2003 to 2009 he handled the finances of the Unimog/Special Vehicles departments in Wörth. He would later take on responsibility for the worldwide vehicle project controlling of commercial vehicles for the Daimler Group. His accomplishments include taking the new Mercedes-Benz Actros into series production. Subsequently Günter Ohler took over controlling and engineering management for the global locations of Daimler Trucks Development.
As a former manager of a private racing team on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, he is well aware that numbers tell the truth, and not just in timekeeping. In addition to his extensive experience in controlling, he also has the passion and the genes for the pursuit of “Driving Performance” that Affalterbach is famed for.
Currently Günter Ohler heads the Finance & Controlling and IT departments at Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The history of Mercedes‑AMG is full of records – whether they be for motor racing, performance or sales figures. And every day we resolve to give our best. But a success story can only be written if you have a firm eye on the future. As a high-performance brand and part of a globally active group of companies, it is our duty to develop sustainable technologies. In short, to assume duty. After all, even if we are only responsible for a tiny proportion of global CO2 emissions, each saved gram is crucial. We are all aware of this responsibility and are more than happy to assume it.
After all, we all have motor racing in our blood and, therefore, simply relish a challenge.
