    Mercedes-Benz Sales Consultant
    847-283-6607

    Hi, my name is Paul Kim and I have been a sales consultant for Knauz Mercedes since 2014. a little bit about myself, I was born and raised in Northbrook and currently reside in Skokie. I received my bachelor's degree at Western Illinois University and entered the automotive industry shortly after. I enjoy playing tennis, golf and basketball.

    It is refreshing to work for a company that has family values and really goes out of their way for their employees. I try to have this mindset when I deal with every client I interact with. I am very easy going and try to have an approachable attitude.

    If you have any questions or need any assistance on any of the brands we sell here at the Autopark, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. My direct line is (847) 283-6607 and my email address is pkim@knauz.com

    Thank you and I look forward to working with you.

    My name is William Dierks. I am originally from Havertown, Pennsylvania and currently live in Waukegan, IL. I attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri and am a U.S. Army/Vietnam Veteran. I am married, have two children and three Grandchildren. My wife is Vet Tech at a local Animal Hospital, so yes, we have two dogs and several cats.


    I serve on the Vestry at Christ Episcopal Church in Waukegan. I volunteer as a server at the Community Meal several times a month and act as a Greeter and Usher at Sunday services. I was in the Golf Business for many years, having worked for Marriott, Indian Lakes, Midlane Country Club and Westmoreland Country Club before coming to work at Knauz.


    My current job title is Sales Consultant at our Hyundai & Genesis Store. I assist our customers in meeting their needs whether it be a new or pre-owned vehicle. One of my strong suits is getting to know my customers so that I can match their needs with a vehicle.
