Profile summary

I joined Hilti three years ago as a business developer in global manufacturing. Back then, it was a brand new role, created to both implement and develop Hilti’s global manufacturing strategy. Shaping a new purpose and position, together with my colleagues across the world, was just the challenge I was looking for. I build up a small team to roll out a global manufacturing innovation initiative to the plants and start our digital transformation journey. 
 
After the strategic role in global manufacturing I had the chance to take over an operation unit producing diamond inserts. Being on the shop floor every day, producing our products at highest quality standards and engineering new manufacturing technologies is just a fulfilling and fun job.   
 
It’s so inspiring to see how much passion our people have to drive innovation. Innovation is without doubt an integral part of our DNA.

Profile summary

I’m amazed how fast the time is flying: seventeen years at Hilti and not one boring day!
 
When our plant in China was installed 13 years ago, people were concerned about the quality of our power tools. As quality manager, I  was inspired by the full trust of my management team to do what I needed to do to within this role. They empowered me to build the Hilti ‘Quality First’ module to ensure the high Hilti standard of all our products.
 
I’m happy to say that today we have a very good reputation for the quality of our power tools. Having taken on this challenge gives me confidence and strength to take on the next!
 
What I’ve found really special about working at Hilti are all my great colleagues. I’ve had nine bosses to date, all excellent leaders who have genuinely supported and nurtured my career development. I’ve also learned so much from all the trustful and respectful TEAMs - Together Everyone Achieves More!

Developing our people is part of our normal business, It’s not a case of once or twice a year we think we’d better top up everyone’s training. It’s non-stop, it’s organic. It could be on-the-job coaching, personal mentoring or doing a language course. Everyone has a personalized development plan, and these are genuinely acted upon.

Profile summary

I joined Hilti in 2007, having always worked in logistics. My first role was based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, leading the distribution network on the eastern part of the United States and Canada. This meant fulfilling customer deliveries while learning the commercial and strategic side of the business. After three years, I was given the opportunity to leverage these skills in a completely new part of the organization. I relocated to Germany to lead our central Europe’s warehousing team. A similar role but much more challenging in size and scope, plus the additional learning experience of different cultures and languages.
 
In 2014, I relocated again to my current role, heading up all our logistics for northern Europe. In this position, I’m able to partner with our sales, marketing and finance teams to understand our customers’ needs and then create solutions using our lean tools to fulfil them. At the same time, I’m fortunate to work with some wonderful people and help them develop their careers to the next level.
 
Hilti is a fantastic place for logistics because we own the whole supply chain, which is rare for a company of our size. It means you have full flexibility to address our customers’ needs with all the different disciplines up and down the chain. This also allows for very broad development opportunities. Before I joined Hilti, every job I had was the same, just for different customers. Hilti is more dynamic than that.
