When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What has motivated you to take on a position of high responsibility within Henkel?
I am the kind of person who likes responsibility. In my job, I have never turned down higher responsibility when it offered.
What were the milestones in your career and are there people or circumstances that have favored your career?
I graduated in chemistry and I started my career in a research center, then attended Bocconi University where I moved on to marketing. When my boss decided to leave, I was given responsibility sales, which was pretty unusual for a woman. I can only say that I was in the right place at the right time!
What is your advice to women seeking to build careers?
Never give up. Lot of headhunters told me I would never have a career in sales, as this is a job for men, and that I should focus on R&D or marketing!
