    What fascinates you most about your work in IT&D in logistics?
    I personally don't like working in a pure IT company. Working in IT but within logistics (combined with technology and business) makes me feel cool and is a lot more fun.

    What is your professional background and what has your career journey been like? 
    I worked as a network and software engineer for four years before joining DB Schenker. After that, I changed to working in integration development. I have been working in this field for 12 years and have grown from IT Engineer to team lead in that time. Most of my career achievements have been at DB Schenker.

    What was your biggest professional challenge and how did you overcome it?
    Until now, the biggest professional challenge I have been through was the role conversion from a developer to a team lead. I had to adapt my way of thinking from building flawless programs to building good teams. This process required continuous self-study, training, and communication.

    What aspect of your current job has surprised you the most or been the most unexpected? 
    I would have never thought we’d go through so many major organizational changes in the past five or six years.

    Why would you encourage women to take on a career in IT&D in logistics?
    Women want a sense of fulfillment from their careers. Working in IT&D in logistics means you are constantly learning and becoming more skilled and competitive. It offers good work-life balance as well.

    Thank you, Brianna for being such an inspiration to all of us. It was a pleasure meeting you.
