Shaping tomorrow’s urban mobility.
Daniel Deparis has been responsible for "Urban Mobility Solutions" at Mercedes-Benz AG for over a year. This is where he brings together specialist departments at the Mercedes-Benz Group that concern themselves with urban mobility, so as to jointly exchange information and views with cities and municipalities. In a personal conversation, French-born Daniel Deparis tells us about his career to date and what colors have to do with his work.
Daniel Deparis, 45 years old, married and father of two daughters aged 10 and 8, studied business administration in Lille in France. In 1998, after a dual course of study, he attended a guest semester studying international commerce at the vocational college in Reutlingen (Germany) and applied for positions in the automotive sector. Two days before he was due to start a trainee program in Hesse (Germany), he received confirmation for a six-month internship at GSP Mercedes. Daniel decided against a fast career and opted for the Mercedes star. "I haven't regretted a single day," he says.
