In his new role Henn leads finance and operations for MBUSA, reporting directly to president and CEO, Steve Cannon.  Specific responsibilities include overseeing finance & controlling, risk management, treasury, payroll, procurement, information technology, taxes and facility management. 

A 20-year employee of the Daimler AG family, Henn has extensive international business experience in various leadership positions with a financial focus across the globe.  His most recent post was vice president & CFO for Mercedes-Benz Japan where Henn helped contribute to strong sales and profitability increases despite the challenges following the tsunami disaster.  

Henn began his career with Daimler at the world headquarters in 1991 and five years later, he joined MBUSA for the first time as manager of sales and profit planning.  In 1999, Henn was appointed deputy project director & controller for the SLR development program with McLaren in the United Kingdom before he became vice president & CFO for Mercedes-Benz Canada in 2004.  Three years later, Harald moved to Michigan where he helped to build the new Daimler Financial Services Company in the United States as vice president of finance for Latin America.  In 2009, he transferred back to Daimler's world headquarters in Stuttgart and served as the director of program management for finance excellence. 

Originally from Heilbronn, Germany, Henn studied at the University of Stuttgart where he received a bachelor's degree in economics and mechanical engineering, a master's degree in business management and automotive engineering, and in 1998, earned a doctorate in economics.  He currently resides in Westwood, NJ with his wife, Leslie, and their two children.
