You work in the IT service department. What exactly does this involve?
I look after all systems, mainly SAP for the areas of production, logistics, material requirements planning and QM. I am the interface between the departments and the technical world. In my team, we are always searching for improvements. You could say that pretty much every project I work on has something to do with simplifying complexity or making the lives of Gira employees easier.
What do you do to escape from technology now and again?
I have played volleyball for many years with my friends in Cologne and am happy that I’ve managed to keep this up alongside my work. "Volleyball probably appeals to me so much because there are actually similarities between volleyball and my job as a computer scientist." You must pay attention to a thousand things at once, including many things that aren’t so obvious at first. And then make the right decision at the right moment. You only succeed by working as a team.
