Malte – division manager, started as an intern
"As equipment division manager, my team and I are responsible for all the transport equipment for our various industries, especially freight wagons, but also cargo containers such as containers or swap bodies. It is important that the equipment is available at the right time, in the right quantity and quality, and that it is suitable for the cargo. As customer requirements are constantly evolving, strategic fleet development and the preparation of major investment decisions are also part of the job.
I started working for the company as an intern in 2009 and also wrote my thesis on the topic of "transport equipment". I found it so interesting that I stayed on as an employee. I was soon able to take on more responsibility, lead a small team and then, after about five years, when my boss retired, I took over as divisional manager.
I like the fact that our business is constantly changing and that we always have new challenges to tackle. I also like the good mix of strategic and operational issues, from shaping the future to quickly transfer a wagon into maintenance."
