Mr. Roland Sebastian Folger, aged 59, has been a part of Daimler AG since 1979.

From the end of 1993 to 1995, Mr. Folger was a part of the pioneering team introducing the first M-Class in the United States as he served the position of Vice President for Sales, Marketing, and After Sales.

After a remarkable accomplishment in the United States, Mr. Folger took a seat at Daimler AG's global head office again in 1997 where he managed VIP Sales, Central, Special Protective Vehicles, AMG, Technical Accessories, and Merchandise. He also took part in Product Management for numerous vehicles including M-Class, R-Class, A-Class, and B-Class.

Mr. Folger later joined Mercedes-Benz Vans Division as Head of Product Management and Marketing Communication in 2006. In September 2008, he took over the responsibility for worldwide sales of vans.
