On Tuesday 18th October, Nasser Bin Khaled (NBK) celebrated five illustrious decades of partnership and success with Mercedes-Benz, a memorable milestone in Mercedes-Benz’s 125 years of innovation and excellence.
HE Sheikh Nawaf Nasser Bin Khaled At Thani paid tribute to Qatar’s growing economy that NBK contributes to. The occasion culminated with the 50th Jubilee cake, perched on top of the first every Mercedes-Benz wooden three-wheeler, which was a very unusual and glamorous way for a cake to make an entrance! Sheikh Nawaf Nasser Bin Khaled Al Thani received the 50th anniversary shield from Mike Belk, President and CEO of Daimler MENA, who said that “This is a wonderful occasion and we are very proud to reach this milestone.”
As Khaled Shaa’ban, General Manager, pointed out, with the courage to go in search of new ideas, there would be no motor car, and so without innovation, there would be no progress. NBK have made innovation and progress part of their core philosophy to contribute to a thriving Qatar.
