Mercedes-Benz Financial returns to the top spot in the Floor Planning category after ranking fourth in 2008. Mercedes-Benz Financial ranked highest in two of the three Floor Planning factors: Finance Provider Offering and Process/Service.

Mercedes-Benz Financial also finished the highest ranked in Prime Retail Credit, making up three positions after placing fourth in 2008. MBF ranked highest in the two most important factors of this cate-gory: Provider Offering and Credit Personnel. Mercedes-Benz Financial had the second-highest ranking in the Retail Leasing category.

Franz Reiner, Vice President and head of Mercedes-Benz Financial, praised the entire team for a clear focus and the highest levels of support. He cited the 2008 relocations from California and New Jersey to Fort Worth, and the tough economic situation as factors that did not distract MBF from delivering consistent levels of top performance.

“We said in 2008 that Mercedes-Benz Financial would be back on top in 2009 and the entire team contributed to this fantastic success,” Reiner said. “While the scores and the awards are great, knowing that our dealers value our partnership, appreciate the way we do business and understand that MBF is a critical success factor for their success is a great reward that we can all share.”
