It is amazing how fast the last 4 years have flown by. It has been 2 continents, 3 different positions and a lot of new friends and experiences gathered along the way.

4 years, 3 positions, 2 continents & 1 company

I first joined Hilti for my Internship in Fire Protection 4 years ago. I was so impressed by how the teams worked together building on each other strengths that I knew I wanted to stay longer with this company.

The next step was the Hilti Outperformer program, where I got the opportunity to develop local suppliers in Brazil and manage the Global sourcing of one third of the portfolio of Business Unit Installation. As part of the Outperformer program, I had the possibility to take a leadership course at IMD Business School and worked on a Social Project building houses in Bosnia. And even more important than that, we have created a strong trainee network that translates into friends and business buddies around the world who are always ready to help and give advice.

At the beginning of 2016 I moved to Dallas (Texas) to take the role of Global Product Manager for BU Installation. It has been one of the most exciting experiences of my career. During the first few months, we have built-up a brand-new team and created the Roadmap of activities to be executed including strategic and product development projects. We are full speed ahead driving our vision.

Hilti has given me the opportunity to live in different continents, explore and learn new roles and show what I am able to do. If I had to summarize my experience in a few words… “There is no limits for your growth, it just depends on how much you are willing to put in”.

How Hilti North America, as a corporation and as individuals, gives back to the community engaged me since the moment I landed here.

Purpose beyond business

One of the most remarkable experiences I had was volunteering with Junior Achievement to help teach 2nd Grade students about the community, the jobs and importance of quality, the salaries and the taxes, etc. Such a challenging task to keep the attention of a full class of 7-year-old kids but so rewarding when they were raising their hands to answer all the questions.
