Director, Marketing and Communications, EMEA DAS, Germany

“I like a complex challenge, and this is exactly what ASSA ABLOY has offered me over the years."

"I’ve been given constant opportunities to drive change, to implement my ideas in making the business even more customer focused – and to create effective communications around the changing customer journey.” 

“Communications, storytelling and agenda setting are my biggest passions. Designing marketing and PR initiatives to create customer demand for a very complex security system is hard. You need to convince more decision-makers. But that’s the challenge I like.

ASSA ABLOY is a great place to work because I have the freedom to drive change and transformation. The Group has offered me this opportunity, and I have been able to take it in all my roles. And not only by changing within my day-to-day job: I also participated in an international exchange program, working for our units in Australia and New Zealand for a while.

The company invests a lot in my knowledge and leadership skills. I constantly improve my skill-set and stay up-to-date. It’s a key element of every successful business.

I really like the people in my team. I have an internationally diverse group of colleagues. I believe we work in an environment that makes us feel comfortable, and so enables us to be effective.”
