Career history at Hilti
I joined Hilti’s Outperformer program in 2013 and spent my first year visiting construction sites to advise on and sell a variety of mechanical drilling tools in Belgium. I wasn’t new to sales, but totally new to construction. I soon learned the workings of house builds and sprinkler systems!
I then moved to logistics in Belgium’s head office, redesigning stock allocation to Hilti stores in the region, and three months later arrived in our French head office to develop a service package for customers. From there, I joined our Latin America head office in Chile, where I worked in strategic marketing on resource deployment planning. It was an exciting time as the dynamics of this market are very different from Europe.
That’s three jobs in two countries and what they all had in common was the strong Hilti culture. I felt right at home and part of the team, regardless of any language barrier from time to time. I also felt part of the decisions being made. Even as a trainee at Hilti, you’re seen as an expert and people really listen to what you have to say.
After my two years as a global trainee, I become HUB product manager, where I got to launch one of the most thrilling fixings (S-BT) for our engery&industry customers. It was an important launch, as the launch enabled us to grow a product category which had been struggling and bring it back to double digit growth.
However, next product launches, I was also given the opportunity to work on strategic marketing projects (focus on developing high perfoming teams with developing new product processes, onboarding of new marketing people), giving me significant exposure to senior management and developming my strategic thinking, agile learning and the first exposure to developing people. All important elements for professional development at Hilti.
These projects opened doors to a new challenge for me, and I now lead a team of highly talented product managers in driving our power tools business forward in our Southern-European Hub. Having just started this new opportunity, I feel myself progressing in important elemant of Hilti Leadership such as strategic thinking, developing pragmatic approaches, developing people….
Career history at Hilti
Before joining Hilti, I did an internship with one of their partner customers, where I had the opportunity to work with Hilti’s anchor design program, PROFIS Anchor. I later met Hilti at a job fair and, impressed by what I’d seen of their software, approached them for a chat.
I’m now in my first role with the company as a territory sales representative for steel and metal fabricators. Having no real sales experience, it’s been a great chance to learn about the practical side of business development and apply my theoretical knowledge from university.
It’s also been the best way to learn about Hilti – our products, our markets and the organization as a whole.
From here, there are many ways to develop your career, whether you want to go deeper into sales or explore marketing, finance, logistics or HR. It’s a big company, so there’s plenty of scope to grow. As long as you perform with outstanding results, the opportunities are there for development and progression. There’s also help if you need it in the way of training and support. This is what makes Hilti so special. It’s clearly a people business.
So far I love my role. It can be a challenge to come up with solutions that meet customers’ needs. But, when you do, when customers develop into real partners and they come to you for solution after solution, it’s incredibly rewarding.
