Trends in focus.
Florian Fuest is involved with all the trending topics in mobility: digitalisation, networking, autonomous driving and above all e-mobility. What fascinates him, among other things, is the paradigm shift that has taken place in mobility development in the past few years and which will drive on innovation in the future. His motto, suitably, runs as follows: “Change – constant change – is an important step to take to avoid the possibility of stasis or regression.” The head of department for distribution, after-sales and procurement is an essential factor in the reorientation of mobility taking place at Bertrandt.
Because of his stewardship of his department, he feels more like an entrepreneur within the enterprise, bearing his responsibilities with great scope for decision making and a high level of own initiative. These start with strategic planning, continue through customer acquisition and customer retention management and run all the way to personnel management and development. “These varied tasks, in a team consisting practically entirely of makers,” he says, “where everyone has the greatest drive towards quality, makes each day a whole new enjoyable experience.” In addition, at Bertrandt, all the tasks undertaken are forward-looking and serve the greater good of society.
Even if the daily roster of tasks is very demanding, motivation is extremely high. “This is partly because, in my department, we get along and work extremely well together. But it is also because of the good cooperation we have across hierarchies and company locations.” Exactly this was one of the reasons why Florian Fuest started his career at Bertrandt in January 2014. “Many different projects from attractive clients, all sorts of possibilities for personal development and, of course, Bertrandt itself, a modern and innovative employer – all this appealed to me right from the start.”
Florian Fuest doesn’t neglect sport as a counterweight to his work. In his free time, he likes to stay on the ball, whether at football or tennis, and is intensely dedicated to mobility – including his own, whether using a mountain or racing bike. And this makes him totally on trend.
