Katrin Adt to take over as head of smart

  • Adt has held various management positions at Daimler since 1999, and has been a vice president in the Human Resources department since 2014.

  • Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for #mercedesbenz Cars Sales: “Katrin Adt has years of international experience. With her experience in various management positions in sales and marketing and the companywide management culture initiative Leadership 2020, she will steer smart into a successful future.”

Katrin Adt (46) is to be the new head of the smart product area at Daimler AG. Adt has been with the company since 1999 and held various management positions in sales functions for Daimler until 2013. Among other things, she was responsible for the worldwide sales management of smart and, as Chief Executive Officer of the Luxembourg sales organization, was responsible for the wholesale, retail and service functions for #mercedesbenz Cars, #mercedesbenz Trucks and #mercedesbenz Buses. She will take over as head of smart in September.

Her passion for personnel development took Adt to one of the largest international human-resources consultancies in 2013. In the following year, she returned to the Human Resources department at Daimler as vice president. In that position, she has been responsible among other things for personnel development, qualification, support for top management, the Germany-wide HR shared service organization and the new Leadership 2020 management culture, with which Daimler is strengthening an agile and innovative organization and aligning itself for the future.

Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for #mercedesbenz Cars Sales: “Katrin Adt has years of international experience. With her experience in various management positions in sales and marketing and the companywide management culture initiative Leadership 2020, she will steer smart into a successful future.”

Adt succeeds to Dr. Annette Winkler (58), who, as previously reported, will step down from her position as head of the smart product area after eight years and thus end her operational activity as of September 30, 2018. She will join the Supervisory Board of #mercedesbenz South Africa as of January 1, 2019.
