Wolfgang Würth is responsible for the social media area. His tasks include managing relationships with representatives of the new media, regular workshops and supporting bloggers at press trial drives and trade fairs. Wolfgang Würth has been with Mercedes-Benz Cars since 2008, most recently as a Project Manager in digital brands communication.
Melanie Graf remains in charge of overall brand communication for Mercedes-Benz Cars, lifestyle communication for the Maybach and AMG brands, and for Mercedes-Benz design – continuing the role she has successfully performed for the last three years.
