Patrik Gottwick, 39, will be the new Manager of Sales and Marketing Classic Centre at Mercedes-Benz Heritage GmbH. He brings extensive experience in various leadership roles in the classic car sector. With his expertise, he will further develop the Classic Centre’s trading operations, focusing particularly on top-segment Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

This re-organisation is expected to facilitate continued dynamic development of the centre of excellence for classic vehicles with the three-pointed star.

Since February 2024, as a result of an acquisition, the workshop capacities of the Classic Centre have been considerably expanded.

This has also involved taking on experienced specialists, along with their formidable know-how, as well as a substantial stock of spare parts and specialised equipment for complex work on exclusive Mercedes-Benz classics.

Thus, additional capabilities for factory restorations, repairs and maintenance have been created, which has more than doubled workshop capacity.

The history of the world’s oldest luxury car manufacturer is of key importance to the brand’s identity.

Last year, Mercedes-Benz Group AG consolidated all Classic activities within Mercedes-Benz Heritage GmbH. This has further strengthened the Classic division, allowing it to develop even more flexibly and dynamically in the future.
