“No day is like the other”.
Which department do you head? Design Brands & Operations.
What are its main functions? My team and I design both Mercedes-Benz Vans, Trucks and Special Trucks (Unimog/ Econic) as well as the smart. We are also responsible for the design workshops as well as for many operational issues.
What is a typical working day like for you? My job is so varied that no day is like the other. My task is to put together the projects and their key parameters for my teams. That means intensive coordination with the relevant colleagues from marketing, development and planning. I also have to fix the budgets for projects or investments, for example for a new milling cutter. Yet I still find enough time to discuss the designs and models with the designers and, of course, with Gorden Wagener.
