After my mechanical engineering studies, I was looking to start my career in an international and diverse environment. One that was at the same time somehow limited in size, so I would be exposed to a wider range of responsibilities and issues at multiple plants. The fact that I worked for both sister companies Arpa and Trespa, gave me a broad perspective and enabled me to work on synergies.
What I like is to make an impact by challenging whether the way things have always been working is, actually, the way that prepares us for future growth. The most important contribution resulting from my analyses and work has been to improve the awareness of where the root cause of any problem actually lies. As a department leader, directly after being a trainee, I really felt the responsibility of organising other people’s work. Currently, I am involved in a unique, strategic project related to production, which I am really excited about. I enjoy having the responsibility and look forward to growing along with the organisation.
What I have learned most of all is to interact with both senior management and factory workers in a productive way. Being the link is not always easy but progress is tangible and the exercise is interesting and rewarding. To continue improving, I just have to keep on being curious.
