“We are thrilled to welcome Eva to this important leadership role. Eva’s extensive experience in multiple markets and across a variety of business areas will be critical to delivering on the six strategic pillars that will help further grow Mercedes-Benz’s position in the Canadian market,” said Psillakis.
