Mercedes-Benz Group AG Board of Management has decided on several new appointments within Mercedes-Benz top management. The company is bidding farewell to its esteemed colleagues who have served in long-time and successful careers. With the new appointments, Mercedes-Benz is strengthening the consistent implementation of its sustainable business strategy.
„The success of Mercedes-Benz is above all one thing: a team effort. Some of our colleagues who have been instrumental to our success over many years are now starting new chapters in their lives – they are going into well-deserved retirement or continuing to evolve their careers beyond our company. I would like to wholeheartedly express my sincerest gratitude for their tireless efforts, and want to wish them all the very best for the future. At the same time, I’m very much looking forward to working with the new top management colleagues joining the Mercedes-Benz family, as well as those who are taking on new responsibilities in key positions with us.”
