Holcim offers people a very professional business background based on worldwide experience and the professional knowledge of a large number of employees. It is a successful well-known company with a good reputation for sustainable development. The high level of professional training has helped me develop my soft skills and also my networks throughout the global business.

During my career with Holcim, I have had the opportunity to work in Switzerland with the responsibility for Controlling. This gave me the possibility to learn about the working culture in the 'heart' of the Holcim Group - and Zürich was an extraordinary place to live.

I began my career with Holcim as Cement Plant Controller and then moved to take on the responsibility for controlling of the aggregate and ready-mix concrete operations. I then took the position of Controlling in Holcim Switzerland before accepting my current role two years ago as Head of Controlling and Accounting in South Germany.

For me, being part of Holcim means being part of a successful professional worldwide enterprise that offers personal development and cares for the social and environmental aspects of our operations.

I would like to meet…

Saladin (Salah al-Din Yusuf, the great Muslim leader), because I would like hear his comments on the crusades and politics.
