Travel fever packed into job
Where did your interest in EHG come from?

Where did your interest in the Erwin Hymer Group come from?


The world of mobile travel has fascinated me since I was a child. The trigger was the numerous vacations in Italy with our family camper. It quickly became clear that I had caught the travel bug. During my studies in tourism management, I completed an internship abroad at one of the largest European campsites. After completing my studies, I joined the Erwin Hymer Group as a trainee with a focus on sales and marketing.

How did you feel about starting your career? What were the biggest challenges?


As a trainee in the Erwin Hymer Group, I had insights into different departments and different locations right from the start. This enabled me to make contacts quickly, get to know specialist areas and take on my first projects. The various seminar and networking events were ideal support for the start of my career. And if I had any questions or faced any particular technical challenges, I could always turn to my experienced mentor.

From Trainee to Head of Sales

What have been the most fascinating experiences of your work so far?


One of my highlights in recent years was accompanying the launch of a new Group brand - from the first strategy paper to the trade show presentation of the finished vehicles. I was also fascinated by our trade shows around the world and the contacts that were made with end customers there. In the first two years in particular, I was able to bring a lot from my tourism and event management studies to bear - from planning the trade show booth to organizing major customer and dealer events.

What excites you about your job today?


The diverse mix makes the daily appeal of my work. I have always been fascinated by the design of vacation and leisure experiences. Business management issues or entrepreneurial processes always serve the purpose of offering our customers unforgettable vacation moments.
