Ademola Portrait in a Suit

Ademola lives his passion for people and diversity

With his big, warm smile, Ademola brightens up every conversation he has and stays in your mind after. 

Ademola is championing our new reporting tool in Global Controlling. Over the years, he has developed his career from Transformation Office to Global Controlling – while enjoying collaborating with colleagues around the world along the way.

I really enjoy this working atmosphere with the different cultures!

Ademola, Manager Financial Insights & Analytics

Where it all started 

White snowflakes and an icy wind were the first things that Ademola felt when he relocated from sunny Nigeria to Bremen, Germany, in the winter of 2007. Although the winter was hard, he did not give up and completed his studies at the University of Bremen. Following another job, he joined DB Schenker's Head Office in Essen, Germany, in the fall of 2016. His first role was Program Management Officer, followed by a position in Smart Cost Management. With his Master in Technology Management (MTM) and a Master of Science in Mechatronics (MSc), he is keen on numbers – but always enjoyed interacting with people.

Easy with people  

When working with Ademola, you will soon notice his personal goal: he aims to improve reporting. In his current role as Manager Finance Insights & Analytics in the Finance-BI Team, he creates and tests new standardized financial reporting methods. To do so, he analyzes the status quo, identifies improvement areas and acts as an interface to his team. His greatest enjoyment is working with people from all different cultures at DB Schenker and exploring different opportunities. He always looks on the bright side of life, thinks positively and loves to try new ways of working. It is important to him to continuously gain insights – “what no one has thought of so far” – and to improve processes for greater efficiency at DB Schenker. 

“Working together with the DB Schenker people is ever so easy. I want to make the usage of Finance BI simple for them and add value for the users. Each time I do this they are actually very grateful. I really enjoy this working atmosphere with the different cultures!”

Diversity at DB Schenker is a great experience  

The international working atmosphere at our Head Office, together with the opportunity to work with many different cultures every day, is what Ademola enjoys the most.

Since 2016, Ademola lives in Essen with his wife. Together, they are proud parents of two lovely children. After work, Ademola spends as much time as possible with his two active kids, so his wife can continue her studies. Sometimes, of course, he misses his home country. When time allows, he cooks traditional dishes and listens to Nigerian music together with his wife.
