Jul 19, 2019 Company Miles: Fernando Vacas
We’re thrilled to recognize Fernando Vacas, Service Contract Specialist, as he celebrates 15 years with Daimler and MBUSA.
Three countries, three languages and two international moves led Fernando to MBUSA. After beginning his career at Mercedes-Benz Spain in 2004, where he was honored with several promotions, piloted new aspects of Mercedes-Benz’ service contract business and transitioned to key account manager, Fernando moved to Stuttgart, Germany in 2016 when the European Service Contract business for Mercedes-Benz centralized.
With a vision of an international career and hopes of one day making a home in the U.S., he jumped at the opportunity to participate in the Van Experience Program, which allows employees to work for up to three months in another market. Packing his bags for a second time, looking to expand not only his career but his bass fishing hobby across the pond, Fernando moved to Atlanta.
During the Van Experience Program, a position became available for a Service Contract Specialist, bringing his dreams of living in the U.S. to life. Fernando thanks MB for taking care of his wife and him throughout each of their transitions and anticipates celebrating another 15-year anniversary with MBUSA down the road.
Danke dir, gracias and thank you, Fernando, for your years of dedication to MB and for always being up for a new adventure, even a trans-continental one!
