    MBUSA CEO Ernst Lieb relieved of duties

    This story has come out of nowhere and is being reported by Automotive News. Ernts Lieb has been relived from his position that he has held for the last 5 years as head of Mercedes in the USA. Herbert Werner will take over in the interim until an official successor is announced. Mercedes has had strong months this year in the USA so we are not sure what the reason is for Lieb being suddenly removed from his post especially considering he has worked for Daimler for over two decades. This dismissal seemingly coincides with the cancellation of the Mercedes national dealer meeting which was supposed to take place this week. We do not know what Lieb may have done wrong but we do like his taste in women. More on this story to come.

    That's an interesting suggestion but I wonder why it would be the MBUSA head guy taking the brunt of it instead of someone in Germany?

    My theory: Daimler instructed him to make sure $#@! was swept under the rug. It surfaced. CEO fail.

    Makes sense considering the US was the "source" of this I suppose. Very interesting theory...

    Ernst Lieb was removed as MBUSA CEO due to charging personal expenses to the company

    We brought you news last week of MBUSA CEO Ernst Lieb being removed by Mercedes but speculation ran rampant as to why. Reports are coming out that Lieb abused the company expense account. What type of abuse? Apparently he renovated his home on Daimler's dime and charged his wife's country club membership to the company. In addition, he would charge personal flights to the expense account as well such as one such flight to Australia. Lieb was warned but another incident was too much for the brass to stand and he was let go. We are guessing the Mercedes USA CEO is paid pretty well so we have to simply say Lieb was an idiot for abusing the company expense account.

    Tough times when MBUSA paid him so little that he felt compelled to dip into the till for his renovations, CC membership and air travel.

    Pissing away an estimated $50-$60 million on the Superdome likely raised a few eyebrows at HQ, too.

    Sales are at their highest points in the USA and the Superdome I wouldn't call pissing away money. Everyone seems to be happy about that deal.

    I wonder what his salary was.

    All they had to do is hold it off his salary and make him pick it up as income on 1099. There is more to the story . the girl in the second pick is Mena Suvari , Maybe he was romancing her hole in that photo lol . reason for dismissal ???
