What made you choose Cargill?
Cargill is a huge international company with immeasurable opportunities for professional growth and development. When I was offered the job, I accepted it with great pleasure and a strong motivation to further value and support the company’s mission and vision – and to further grow within the organization.
What’s your favorite part of your workday?
During my six years with the company, I witnessed and learned that what matters at the end of the day, is the people you work with. So, this is my favorite part of my workday: to meet and greet my colleagues, to drive change together, to overcome obstacles, share ideas and achieve results. And at the same time being one big community where people support each other and treat everyone with dignity and empathy.
What are you most proud of in your work?
I’m so proud of the successful teams we managed to build over the years and all the amazing and motivated colleagues we are working with. Together, we have managed to build a top-quartile organization and a center of excellence on an EMEA-wide level with best-in-class talent that is widely recognized across the company. I’m also proud of the center’s growth so far: growing the teams into the fields of management reporting, financial planning and analysis, controlling, statutory accounting and many more new functions like IT, Master Data Management and Administrative support.
