  • Strah Gostović
    Product Concierge
    847-283-6609

    Hello, my name is Strah Gostović.

    I have been a part of Knauz family since summer of 2017. Being Product Concierge allows me to help our customers understand all of the high-tech features in their Mercedes-Benz vehicles. My mother is a teacher so naturally I enjoy working with people and teaching them about their vehicles. 

    I was born and raised in Serbia where I played semi-pro basketball for 11 years. I currently live in Chicago with my beautiful wife Kia, who is a mortgage specialist. On my days off I always like to try something I've never done before. Some of the recent ones were go-kart racing and kayaking. I enjoy playing basketball and tennis. 

    Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about the technology features on your Mercedes - Benz or Sprinter Van.
