CEWE is always ahead of the pack, because we always strive to incorporate innovative ideas in our production.(Silke Beissel)
And that has been the case since 1978 – that's how long I've been here! In recent years I worked my way up through different positions, from apprentice to Deputy Department Manager to become Production Manager, and was able to implement many of my own ideas and those of my colleagues into reality.
Today I am, above all, responsible for issues like quality, deadlines and productivity and production and plan the deployment of personnel, optimise processes and ensure processes. Another important factor: employee motivation!
Back then I knew quite quickly that I wanted to remain at CEWE and then everything took its course. Responsibility came in small steps at first but then continuously became greater. My biggest career jump within six months was from Deputy to Department Manager – that was 22 years ago. During this time I have helped to set up approximately ten different departments.
Most of all I enjoy working with my colleagues and members of staff, achieving the targets we have set ourselves and setting new targets time and time again – we never stand still at CEWE. And that's just so great!
