What made you choose Dornier Group as your employer?
After my previous employer had to file for bankruptcy, the CFO of the Group asked me if I’d be interested in working for Dornier Group. Following the first interview and having got to know other colleagues I was already really keen, so it was a relatively easy decision. Thanks to the excellent onboarding process, I felt very much at home right from the start.
What path have you taken through the company so far?
It’s been an exciting one. The 2019 merger meant there was a lot to do for our new Corporate Controlling department. We had to migrate all structures and processes of the finance departments of each of the subsidiaries to the new Dornier Group. I’ve also got to know an incredible number of fantastic people over the past months, and together we’ve achieved a great deal.
Can you tell us a bit about what you do and about your team?
We are the point of contact for monthly and annual financial statements, forecasts and annual planning. We also prepare reports, for instance monthly and bank reports, accounts receivable reports and utilization analyses, as well as monitoring the liquidity planning of the entire Group.
There are three of us in Corporate Controlling. We’re a young and highly motivated team. We have a very good working atmosphere based on trust and respect for each other, and that’s hugely beneficial when things get challenging.
