MBV Conversion Update

Wow! We had 28 Teammates convert over to Mercedes during the month of May! Congratulations to them and we wish them nothing but the best in their continued career growth here at MBV and greatly appreciate their hard work and dedication! Mercedes continues to have classes every 2 weeks so more Teammates will be transitioned every month. We encourage Teammates with questions about the conversion process to reach out to their Team Relations Representative.
