Career history at Hilti
After I graduated from university in 1993, I joined a state-owned company as technician, on average it took only two hours to finish the daily job, the rest of the time was awful boring. In 1994, I made the decision to join Hilti because I believed that this company would enrich my international working experienc and I would get the chance to learn advanced manufacturing technologies. All this has become true and I have spent very exciting 23 years with Hilti.
I have enjoyed working with colleagues from all over the world from Germany to America and even Mexico. In the early 1990s, when most of my classmates were dealing with traditional machines and technologies, I got my first lesson about industrial automation; in 1995, I got the chance to operate a 5-axis CNC milling machine which was forbidden to be sold to China; from 1996, and I got to be involved in many technologies I never had even dreamt of before.
I had continousl trainings on culture, leadership and functional expertise over the years and this was a big help for me to develop my competencies and enable me to take bigger responsibilities and challenges step by step.
Since 2011, I took the responsibility over the technical service department where I had the chance to lead the innovation topics and develop the technologies strategy and road-map for the future years. With the implementation of various technologies, we have managed to turn the plant from a pure fulfilment plant to an innovation partner. This makes me surely proud. My biggest challenge is to develop my team members and get them ready for “teach back” to our European colleagues.
Career history at Hilti
In my years at Hilti, I’ve had nine different jobs, from marketing through to all the various areas of logistics in the USA, Liechtenstein, and UAE. A global career crossing multiple functions is certainly possible with a company like Hilti.
My latest position takes me to Dubai, UAE, to be head of materials management for our Middle East -Turkey - Africa region. A global career is certainly possible with a company like Hilti.
In all my jobs at Hilti, I’ve had the opportunity to improve the way we do things. It’s one of those rare places where, if you have an idea or something to say, your manager is definitely going to listen to you. You really have a voice here.
Career history at Hilti
I first made contact with Hilti in Liechtenstein while doing a consultancy project at university. I was inspired by their strong team spirit and drive to innovate, and applied to do an internship with them in production technology research.
I stayed on to do another internship, this time in China, working on lean processes in one of our Shanghai production plants. While this was a very different culture to the one I’d experienced in Schaan, I found the same Hilti spirit in China as in Europe!
I joined Hilti ‘officially’ after graduating from university, and moved into a global role in lean manufacturing. During this time, Hilti supported me in completing my PhD alongside work. It was a big personal challenge for me, which wouldn’t have been possible without the great support of my team and team lead.
My next role involved a move to Germany, where I worked in our Kaufering plant near Munich. I was leading the logistics department while also working on a global project to shape our future supply chain. It was a great learning experience, which has been an essential part of my personal development plan, as agreed between me and my team lead. Thanks to the ongoing support of my team, I now have the privilege of leading Hilti’s chemical anchor and firestop production unit, which means carving the way to digitilization. I’m the youngest member of the plant’s management team, so it’s an especially big honour for me.
After more than eight years at Hilti – that’s six jobs in nine sites on three continents – I’m still inspired by our highly-motivated team. Everyone is given the chance to learn and grow every day. And in many cases – like mine – we’re given huge responsibility very early in our career.
