What makes my work within Land Transport special?
In Land Business Development, our job is to be the “bridge to sales”. Although we are already the market leader in Europe, we are currently working with sales to unleash the full potential of our ‘Bigger Better Faster More Plus’ (BBFM+) strategy and remain the first choice for customers with market leading speed, quality, sustainability, customer experience, and growth. Helping to bring this vision to life is really rewarding and a lot of fun!

What are your areas of interest/ hobbies?
I am very interested in international trade and development and the impact that it has on people’s lives. In my spare time, I love hiking in summer and skiing in winter. I enjoy reading (mostly history and science), meeting with friends, and photography.
