A man for all seasons.
Marc Heizmann does not develop new technologies for cars or aeroplanes. However, he offers crucial support for the successful work of his colleagues in practically all areas of the company. That is because he is responsible for ensuring that everyone at Bertrandt has a roof over their head, that everything runs smoothly and that the employees can work in safety.
As the specialist in charge of facility management, he and his colleagues look after the buildings in Leonberg, Mönsheim, Weissach, Rutesheim and Hemmingen, taking care of “anything that comes up”. This includes, for example, coordinating workers from both external companies and internal departments. And you can be sure from his almost 20 years of work for the firm that nobody knows their way around it better.
When Marc Heizmann first arrived at Betrandt in 2000, he started in Ludwigsburg-Tamm in model construction, moving to Ehningen shortly after. “There, alongside big tasks in every sense of the word, like making a mock-up of the Airbus A380 for a fair, I had every opportunity to work independently and develop myself constantly.” This was how he ended up in Facility Management in 2006. Alongside his “super-colleagues”, the thing he singles out for praise at Bertrandt are the typical flat hierarchies. “I practically know everyone here – even up to the executive board. And a little small talk is part of the ordinary daily programme.”
Sociability and friendliness – alongside family, of course – are among this Bertrandt bedrock’s professional and private priorities. For several years he has been the Bertrandt biker, making a big trip every year with other motorbike fans. After last year’s tours of the Dolomites and Moselle, 2019’s destination is the Black Forest. Perhaps he will also take his guitar with him, an instrument that has accompanied him for 15 years. “My musical performances always have a certain amount of room to improve,” he happily admits, “but it’s great fun, nevertheless.”
As a family, with his grandchildren, on his bike, playing the guitar and in the workplace: Marc Heizmann is fully committed, wherever he is.
