Profile summary

I joined Hilti in 2002 with a backpack full of skills and experiences, including training as a carpenter and a degree in wood technology engineering. It was the perfect match for my role as product manager in Hilti’s power tools business.

These were exciting times and I got to work on some visionary projects, like bringing to market the first battery-driven circular saw with the same power and performance as a corded tool.

Four years later, I was honoured to be offered the role of y-combi hammer product management, which is somehow part of the Hilti DNA. I had a fantastic time working on strategic long-term projects, as well as renewing the entire tool fleet to get y-combis back to growth.

From a family perspective, we always wanted to experience living abroad, and it’s something I would recommend to anyone. So I was thrilled with the opportunity to move to Manchester in 2011, where I was part of the team setting up the marketing hub for northern Europe. As building construction trade manager, this meant working on the sales force competency ramp-up and segmentation. I also got the chance to lead the UK product management team for a year and a half. It was a wonderful time, which my family and I enjoyed in every way.

I’m now based in Schaan, using my expertise in product management to globally manage the gas saw portfolio, which is really quite unique.

One of my fondest memories is of our dinner to celebrate ranking in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For. It was a real celebration of what we’re about as an organization and I was lucky enough to be part of it.

I’m thankful to Hilti for the flexibility they showed me when integrating back into work after the birth of each of my daughters. Also for the chance they gave me to be a team leader while working part time. I just love my job!

Profile summary

When I joined Hilti many years ago, I was one of very few women in the business, which meant some interesting situations, like customers expecting me to bring the coffee or banning me from their job sites!
 
I’m happy to say that this attitude has dramatically changed. Today, I work with a lot of women and everyone accepts us and respects us as peers. There are also many more women among our customers today, so that’s a positive change too.
 
I started my career as a sales trainee, which quickly led me to marketing, where I’ve worked ever since, albeit in different functions.
 
My personal growth has been huge along the way, as I’ve learned new things, deepened my expertise and developed my team. Hilti gave me my first leadership position when I was just 28. The trust they showed me meant an even higher engagement and performance from my side.
 
Over the years, I’ve seen how dynamic Hilti is and how flexible it is in managing change, while all the time having a very clear direction driven by our company strategy.

Hilti might throw you into new situations but, when they do, it’s with a huge amount of support – from your line manager, the HR team, other people in your department, everyone really.

Profile summary

I joined Hilti as a sales person in the UK. Thirteen years later, I have progressed into a sales leadership role in the UK having spent three years at our global head office looking after our ultimate class drill driver cordless tools.
 
My first product launch is still one of my proudest moments. The project was for our first lithium ion drill driver. It sticks in my mind because we did what Hilti often does - we came to the market with a superior product that our customers could see the value of straight away.
 
The training at Hilti is fantastic. My first week at our training center in Manchester felt pretty intense, as we were taught the breadth and depth of our huge product range. But what also struck me was the level of support we were given as new starters.
