Babz Hamilton brings more than 24 years of knowledge and experience with the brand to her role as service advisor at Mercedes-Benz of Knoxville.
Hamilton has been at Mercedes-Benz of Knoxville for nearly five months. Her previous experience includes working at Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.
“I love Mercedes Benz,” she said. “I’ve been at the factory in Sindelfingen, Germany, several times and I still cry every time I watch the film at the beginning of the tour. Even though I’ve been with Mercedes 24 years I learn something new every single day.”
Trips to Germany are just part of Hamilton’s travel portfolio. “I love traveling! I’ve been to almost every continent,” Hamilton said. “I’m currently in love with Thailand and Australia.”
Hamilton moved to Knoxville to be closer to her daughter, Tristan, who recently relocated to Chicago to work in theater, but she has roots in the region. Her late mother was born and raised in Harlan, Ky. — her late father was from Corsicana, Texas — and she has family in LaFollette, Williamsburg, Ky., Pineville, Ky., and Harlan.
She lives in Knoxville with her son, Carl, a Goffin Cockatoo named Sinclair and a cat named Charles.
