DaimlerChrysler AG chairman-in-waiting Dieter Zetsche, famous for cutting costs and turning around Chrysler, took his first steps Wednesday at getting Mercedes in shape.

Zetsche left Auburn Hills-based Chrysler Group this month to take over the ailing German-based Mercedes Car Group of DaimlerChrysler. He is to become chairman of the entire company in January.

DaimlerChrysler announced Wednesday that it would be cutting 8,500 employees, or about 8% of the workforce, at Mercedes at a cost in buyout packages of about $1.1 billion. The company’s stock rose $2, or about 4%, to $54.83 Wednesday.
