Which position are you taking on at AT?
I start at Alexander Thamm as a Controlling Manager.
How did you hear about AT come to your attention?
I saw the advertisement on LinkedIn and found the field of activity very interesting.
Why did you Why did you choose AT?
The different conversations with HR as well as with Thomas and Carina were very sympathetic and professional. I think sympathy is an important factor.
What are you looking forward to the most?
I look forward to learning new things, developing personally and supporting the company through my contribution.
What did you done before?
I have gained a lot of experience, both in hotels and in software companies. Most recently, I was employed by an IT company that was primarily active in the field of mechanical engineering and was the girl there for everything organisational, such as complete reporting, accounting, but also marketing and purchasing.
Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in a small town in North Rhine-Westphalia.
What do you do in your spare time?
Travelling, cooking, skiing, rather I play volleyball in a recreational team, but also like to go climbing.
What was your dream job as a child?
Until I finished school, I didn't really know what I wanted to be. I had so many interests that I couldn't decide. My wishes changed almost every year.
How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
I would describe myself as contrary. I am open-minded and enjoy working with people. It is important for me to have fun at work and it shows. Colleagues said I was always in a good mood. At the same time, I am incredibly conscientious. I like to sit on my tax return for 2 weeks to really get the best out of it, or I also like to plan my holidays via Excel?
What are your 3 most important work utensils?
My three most important work utensils are my laptop, my mobile phone (I always have to photograph everything) and a pen and paper. Especially when I'm on the phone, I write all kinds of things on a scrap of paper. In the end, it always looks a bit chaotic to an outsider. But I always find my notes and the connections immediately. I like to call it creative chaos.
What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was: As if heaven had forgotten me.
What could you definitely not do without in your travel suitcase?
There's no way I could do without my books. For me, holiday time equals reading time. I like to devour 4-5 books per holiday.
What used to be your favourite subject at school?
My two favourite school subjects were mathematics and sport.
What do you always carry in your pocket?
I always have my mobile phone with me, even if it is usually switched to silent.
