Effective June 1, Farmington Hills’ Daimler Financial Services is establishing a new Digital and Mobility Solutions division on its Board of Management, under the leadership of Jörg Lamparter, currently head of Daimler Mobility Services.
In his present position, Lamparter is responsible for Daimler’s mobility services, which has approximately 31 million customers worldwide. He will continue in this role.
“In Jörg Lamparter, we are gaining a recognized expert in the field of digital mobility services as a new member of the Board of Management,” says Klaus Entenmann, chairman of Daimler Financial Services. “Within Daimler Financial Services, he will play a fundamental role in merging the growing fields of digitization and mobility.”
Lamparter played a major role in spearheading the joint ventures with BMW Group in January 2019, bringing Daimler’s mobility products and services – car2go, moovel, and mytaxi – under the newly created company YOUR NOW. In his new role, he will be responsible for the company’s strategic journey of digitalizing products and processes within the company.
Supporting the newly created Digital and Mobility Solutions division, Rodolfo Dominguez, currently vice president of business transformation and chief digital officer for Mercedes-Benz Financial Services in the U.S., will transition to an expanded role as global head of Digital Solution Centers and chief digital officer for Daimler Financial Services, also effective June 1. He will be based out of the company’s global headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany, reporting to Lamparter.
With these personnel and organizational changes, the company is preparing for its renaming as Daimler Mobility in July. Franz Reiner, currently member of the Board of Management for the Europe Region and current chairman of Mercedes-Benz Bank in Germany, will become the company’s new chairman on June 1, succeeding Klaus Entenmann, who will retire at the end of the year.
