Juergen Schrempp is best known in the United States as the architect of the merger that created DaimlerChrysler and as the company's first CEO. But in retirement, he is pursuing a new career as a restaurateur. Schrempp is the proud owner of an inn in the trendy resort town of Kitzbuehel, Austria.
Schrempp has bought the venerable Herzl, a rustic beer garden and tavern, and is having it remodeled. The inn is near Gabriele, an elite Italian restaurant that Schrempp's wife, Lydia, has opened.
