What is your job title and what activities are behind it?
I work as Head of Sales Tamaris DACH at Wortmann KG . In this role, I am primarily responsible for the Tamaris brand and our key account, retail and wholesale customers in the markets of Germany (D), Austria (A) and Switzerland (CH). For this, I am in close contact with our key account managers, office and field sales teams and am the contact person for our customers in the B2B business.
What brought you to Wortmann?
I had long known that I wanted to go to university, ideally to do a dual degree programme. The opportunity to put what I had learned in the theory phases into practice straight away in the practical phases appealed to me much more than a purely theoretical programme. Wortmann offered its dual degree programme in collaboration with LDT Nagold in southern Germany for the first time in 2010. Born in Detmold, I was familiar with Bielefeld and Paderborn, but not Nagold. I decided to apply for a place on the dual degree programme.
What makes your work special?
There is a lot that makes my job stand out. But what is certainly special is that no day is like the other! There are always new requests and challenges. These often require familiarisation with new and varied subject areas in order to find optimal solutions.
What is Wortmann like as an employer?
A fast pace and dynamism are no longer just features of the fashion industry, but of modern life in general. Despite this, at Wortmann I always have the feeling that I work not for a large corporation, but for a down-to-earth family company. Short decision-making processes and personal contact with colleagues, superiors and the management create a very positive working environment at the company.
If you had to describe Wortmann in three words, what would they be?
Down-to-earth, dynamic, familial
Tell us about a unique Wortmann experience you have had.
I still remember the first time I attended a trade fair to this day. It was a very special atmosphere. What made it so special was not only the warm welcome I received from the trade fair team, but especially meeting so many customers face-to-face whom I otherwise only knew from phone calls and emails.
