What is special about my time at WACKER is...
…the possibility to learn about different markets, to work with people from several countries and to interact with so many different cultures.

What is special about WACKER is...
…that WACKER is a very reliable, trustworthy company with good products and a lot of professional people working worldwide.

Where I want to be in ten years’ time:
I love my job. I hope to remain in Sales for the rest of my professional life.

What was better than today 100 years ago?
I can only talk about 25 years ago: Sales managers’ tasks were different - we were generalists responsible for one or two markets; there were no business teams; the focus was not on a specific market and reaction time was slower.

What will be better than today in 100 years’ time?
Probably it will not be better but different: more e business, different product range/new markets and even faster communication with customers.

And the best thing about today is:
To work with a very global, innovative company that has a good market reputation.

What I would like to bring about at WACKER:
I would like to contribute my experience and enthusiasm to support the growth and development of the business.

What I would still like to try out in life:
Maybe to have a look at the Purchasing department, to get to know what it’s like from the other side of the table; but I prefer to stay in Sales.

My favorite meal at the employee cafeteria:
At WACKER Head Quarters I love the salad buffet; in my local area I love the Spanish ham and tapas.

My favorite celebration:
My birthday with all my family and friends.
