Ernst LiebAccording to Automotive News, Ernst Lieb has been relieved of his duties at Mercedes-Benz USA. Lieb had held the position of CEO at MB USA since 2006, and was previously in charge of the automaker's Australian arm.

The report from AN indicates that Lieb did not leave his position by his own volition, but until Mercedes-Benz issues an official statement on the matter, it's just conjecture. In any case, there's no word on who will be replacing Lieb or if he is still with the company in some other capacity.
