Mercedes-Benz USA and its CFO, Harald Henn Celebrated at the CFO Studio Reception

SOMERSET, NJ – Harald Henn, vice president and CFO of Mercedes-Benz USA, based in Montvale, NJ, was the guest of honor at the Reception on July 17 in Clifton, NJ, introducing the 2nd Quarter 2013 issue of CFO Studio Magazine, featuring a cover story about Henn and the leadership principles he has made his own while working in a half-dozen countries.  Over 130 finance executives, general counsels, and others attended the Reception at the Upper Montclair Country Club.

A highlight of the reception was a brief talk given by Henn, who was vice president and CFO at Mercedes-Benz Japan for three years prior to his February appointment to the USA region.  In Tokyo during the triple crises of March 11, 2011, when Japan endured an earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear meltdown, Henn felt that his leadership skills were tested and shaped.  Yet he had already worked for Mercedes’ parent company, Daimler AG, for 20 years.

Henn’s business career began in Stuttgart, Germany, and shortly thereafter he got his dream job — he’s a lifelong automobile enthusiast — with Daimler.  However, he has spent most of his professional career in the United States.  In the article, CFO Studio Magazine readers learn his view that finance is as much a people business as a numbers business.

The article quotes Henn’s belief that finance executives who would like to become CFOs at companies similar to Daimler AG “need to be passionate about the product, enthusiastic about working with people, hungry to learn and never forget your sense of ethics, beliefs, and humor.”

CFO Studio Magazine, which is published quarterly by Real Estate Strategies Corporation, released its Q2 issue, featuring business profiles and strategic advice for New Jersey and New York area CFOs, during the second week of June.
