Employee Spotlight: Edwin
This week we are spotlighting our Sprinter Sales Director, Edwin Sarhad. We would like to introduce ourselves as your local Sprinter retailer for all of your Sprinter needs, but more importantly we would like to introduce you to our team.
Q: What inspired you to enter the automotive industry?
A: I’ve been a gear head since I was a child, if it went vroom it got my attention. I’m pretty sure I bleed motor oil.
Q: Why Mercedes-Benz?
A: 4 words “the best or nothing” that tag line really resonates with me.
Q: What brought you to Temecula?
A: Garth and Antony!
Q: What’s life like outside of work?
A: Sushi, cars, and my dog Milo.
Q: Do you have any hobbies? Car-related or otherwise?
A: I’m a car enthusiast; I go on cannon runs with my friends. Sunday-funday usually consists of car rides to a venue to stuff our faces with sushi!
Q: What’s a random fact about yourself?
A: I’m completely tattooed!
Q: Why Sprinters? how long have you been in the industry?
A: 2 ½ years with Mercedes-Benz and Sprinters. The first dealership I was worked for, the GM approached me and thought I was a good fit for the Sprinter position. He knew that in my previous work history I owned my own business and he wanted me to treat the Sprinter position like a start-up. My failures and successes got me where I am now. After I landed the Red Bull Sprinter account I was named “The Sultan of Sprinters” by the factory.
Q: What makes you passionate about Sprinters?
A: Again, I am a car enthusiast; a lot of my friends are with Platinum Motorsports, Sticker City, and guys that have super- and hyper-cars. So I’ve always been around modified exotics. With Sprinters, Iam able to design and build luxury and exotic projects. I have the founder of Renntech using my ideas to a custom body kit and ground effects that will be exclusive to Fletcher Jones.
