    Sales Consultant

    Hi, my name is Peter Polanski, and I am one of the Sales Consultants at Mercedes-Benz.  I was born and raised in Poland, and came to America at 11 years old, so I am fluent in Polish. 

    I attended Libertyville High School, and enjoyed my time on the Varsity Swimming and Water Polo teams.  I graduated from the College of Lake County, and then began my automotive career over 5 years ago, I've been with Knauz since early 2016. 

    Outside of work I enjoy being active; kayaking, soccer and playing semi-professional paintball are a few of my favorites.  I also enjoy photography, go-karting, and driving AMG® vehicles on the track. I like to cook, have a good cigar, and spend time with friends and family. 

    It's great to work for such a warm and reputable company as Knauz.  I appreciate all the different makes that we offer and enjoy educating our customers on all of the products Mercedes-Benz has so offer!

  • Strah Gostović
    Product Concierge

    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.
