Dec 18, 2017 Shout Out!
As we head into 2018, we’re starting a new feature. At one of our community partners, Hollis Innovation Academy in Atlanta, the children love to “shout out” to recognize one another for good work, so we’ve decided to replicate that at MBUSA. Here are our shout outs for the month of December.
The Northeast Region paid a fond farewell to a friend and colleague Mike Willard as he retired after 42 years of service. During his time at MBUSA, Mike worked in Parts Technical, Dealer Systems and was a Help Desk supervisor. He spent the last 22 years in the Region. Mike is looking forward to traveling with his wife and babysitting his grand kids. We all wish Mike the best and will miss him!
Soeren Thanscheidt, Sr. Sales Engineer for MB Vans, was recently recognized as a “40 under 40” award recipient by the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA). Over the past five years, Soeren has demonstrated a strong commitment to the RV industry, working very closely with all RV OEM manufacturers of the Mercedes-Benz products. He has a drive and dedication that is infectious and his “get it done” attitude makes him a true leader. With exemplary efforts of employees like Soeren, Sprinter products continue to be a major chassis supplier to the RV industry.
Bob Metcalf has accepted the position of After-Sales Operations Manager (AOM) in Chicagoland for Market 1a, effective December 4th. We would like to thank Bob for all his hard work and success as the After-Sales Operations Manager in Market 3 (Denver, Omaha) during the last two years!
