Career history at Hilti
I joined Hilti as a Martin Hilti Foundation student 15 years ago. I was at university in Madrid when I applied for the scholarship in Tulsa, USA. Little did I know it was the beginning of a great personal and professional adventure!
My first job at Hilti saw me with a scanner and forklift, scanning bar codes for our product portfolio in HNA. There I collaborated with Hilti’s SAP implementation team, and I later took my experience to help implement SAP in Spain. After that, I became logistics process expert, and then enjoyed a short but intense and invaluable experience in sales.
Spain and Portugal soon merged operations and I became warehouse manager for this newly-created sub-region. Next, I joined the IMPACT+ program, which brought me a range of new perspectives, as well as new colleagues and friends for life.
From there, another role and another part of Europe – plus a wife along the way! After three years of living in Switzerland, we moved as a couple to Mexico, where we still are today, now with a growing family in tow.
As an emerging marketing, Mexico is a great professional experience for me - yet another way of seeing the business. It’s also very exciting as a cultural family experience.
The common theme in all my years at Hilti – including tough times like the economic crisis in Spain or our warehouse fire in Magny – has been the enduring Hilti spirit. Working together with great people and a great company culture.
Career history at Hilti
I joined Hilti’s global logistics team as a senior project manager, and quickly took over leadership of our global distribution network.
What I’ve noticed is the way Hilti steer the end-to-end value chain, from manufacturing to last mile delivery, and continuously develop it with state-of-the-art lean, digital and ecommerce services. It’s a unique and exciting area in our industry!
Logistics at Hilti is a truly global community. We’re always sharing experiences and ideas across regions and organizations. It’s how we ensure we’re the high-performing, multinational company that we are.
After six years at Hilti, I’m still amazed by the company’s culture and very proud to be part of this success story.
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. After three years I took over leading Hilti’s chemical anchor and firestop production unit. A specially exciting topic was here was carving the way to digitilization. 2 years later my next careers step came: as plant Manager I am now responsible for theI whole plant in Kaufering. I’m the youngest member of the plant’s management team and this makes me particularly proud.
After almost than ten 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.
