Mercedes-Benz Retail Group UK joins The Automotive 30% Club

Mercedes-Benz Retail Group, led by its CEO Angela Shepherd, has become a member of the Automotive 30% Club.

Founded in 2016, the Automotive 30% Club aims to achieve a better gender balance within the automotive industry by achieving at least 30% diverse female representation in the sector’s key roles by 2030.

Angela was appointed CEO of Mercedes-Benz Retail Group in December 2019, with 30 years’ brand experience and is responsible for 15 retail sites across London.

Angela Shepherd, CEO of Mercedes-Benz Retail Group, comments:

“Since I joined Mercedes-Benz Retail Group in December 2019, one of our biggest goals has been to create a culture of diversity and inclusion. The Automotive 30% Club neatly starts the conversation about gender and from there we can open the door to conversations and actions around diversity as a whole.”

Julia Muir, Founder of the Automotive 30% Club comments: “I’m delighted to welcome Angela Shepherd of Mercedes Benz Retail Group into the Automotive 30% Club. It’s wonderful to have such a highly respected leader from the industry join our network of CEOs and MDs, and it’s so important to have reputable, well-known brands such as Mercedes Benz Retail Group in our network. I look forward to supporting Angela to achieve a greater gender balance for the benefit of the business, her employees, and customers, and start to truly change the game in the sector.”
