Wolfratshausen – Dirk Winter’s career at WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH in Wolfratshausen began exactly 25 years ago. Nowadays, the Head of Distribution looks back on a quarter of a century with the company and extraordinary success.
After completing his engineering studies in Munich and Sao Paolo (Brazil), Winter started work as a distribution engineer Export in the family company at the gateway to Munich in 1992. Beside his excellent specialist qualifications, his internationalism and cosmopolitan attitude led to his rapid rise through the ranks in the company. As early as 1995, Winter was made Head of Distribution and was in charge of the entire export business of the specialist world market leader in automated screwdriving processes. Since 2011, the native-born resident of Munich has distribution in Germany and abroad.
Winter’s proven specialist knowledge as a machine engineer and his competency in six languages paved the way for the expansion of WEBER’s business activities to every continent. “In my eyes, successful international business requires you to engage with your partner’s culture, communicate openly and genuinely with them and make agreements within the spirit of mutual respect. This global way of thinking has not only helped me to achieve my professional objectives over the last 25 years – I still enjoy it immensely”, says Winter.
The passionate ski and motorbike rider has become a veritable institution in the company since his time at WEBER – acknowledged and highly appreciated by his colleagues, who never cease to be amazed by his multi-tasking abilities. Dirk Winter has no difficulty writing an e-mail in Portuguese and telephoning a customer in Paris in French at the same time.
Despite his internationalism: Bayern – Wolfratshausen – and Munich in particular are the places with which he always feels a special connection. “I feel at home here”. The owner family and management of WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH congratulate Dirk Winter warmly on his anniversary and wish him many more successful and satisfying years in the company.
