Promoting Mentoring and Giving Back: Private Maybach Foundation Luncheon at The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance


San Francisco, CA. The Maybach Foundation, in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and the Maybach brand, is proud to announce the hosting of a Private Luncheon at this year’s prestigious Concours d’Elegance event at Pebble Beach, California. This intimate, invitation-only gathering, set to take place at the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge on Saturday, August 20th, 2022, is a unique opportunity for Maybach enthusiasts, Foundation members, and industry executives to come together and engage in the concepts of luxury and giving back, as well as learn about the humble roots of the Maybach brand and how they live on today as part of the Maybach Foundation.


The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, is an annual coming together of rare and antique automobiles, international automotive luminaries, and motorcar enthusiasts from around the globe, all competing for one of the most desired awards in the automotive industry — Best of Show. Held on the spectacular 18th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links, this unique competition is not a contest of speed, but rather elegance, with contestants being judged on their historical accuracy, technical merit, and style.


We are honored to welcome graphic artist, Michael Schwab, who joins us as a special guest at the Foundation’s Luncheon. From his studio in Marin County, Mr. Schwab has established a reputation as one of America’s most recognized and best-loved graphic artists. He has created award-winning logos for a remarkable list of prestigious clients, including San Francisco Opera, John F. Kennedy Center, and Pebble Beach. He has created the remarkable, iconic artwork Maybach Powered series for the Maybach Foundation and has won various awards for this iconic series.


As part of the Luncheon, we will also be hosting a “Maybach Foundation Panel Discussion,” during which we’ll exchange thoughts, ideas, and approaches to innovation, philanthropy, and giving back. The panel discussion will be moderated by Guardian Insight Group’s Managing Partner, and Host of “Silicon Valley Insider Radio Show,” Keith Koo. Panellists will include:


  • Daniel Lescow, Head of Mercedes-Maybach;
  • Dimitris Psillakis, Head of Marketing & Sales – Mercedes-Benz Cars North America, and CEO at Mercedes-Benz USA;
  • Ulrich Schmid-Maybach, President and Founder – Maybach Foundation
  • Martin Cordsmeier, Founder – Millionways;
  • Rose W. Vitale, Managing Partner and Founder – FundHER World Capital.
