Meet some of our colleagues
Vice President of US Sales- Strategic Accounts (US)
I joined Nilfisk in 2007 as a Public Relations Coordinator. At the time, I never would have imagined that my career journey would have evolved as it did, but Nilfisk continuously gave me opportunities to develop myself, take risks, and play an integral role in the development and execution of our strategic plans. After having held many different roles within the company, in 2021 I accepted my current role as Vice President, US Sales – Strategic Accounts. I am fortunate to have had great mentors along the way who made an effort to ensure I was growing in my career – whether it was a book suggestion, supporting my MBA degree completion, or a stretch project. My favorite thing about working at Nilfisk is truly the people. I have developed a family of colleagues who are vested in the success of Nilfisk.
Sourcing Excellence Manager (Denmark)
The value of having the opportunity to develop skills within the same organization over time have been a big asset to me as I have been able to learn things about the organization that I would not have known if I had stayed in the same position or left the company for a position elsewhere. For me personally, the faith in my skill set and development potential shown by the organization has had a massive impact as these are essentially the reasons why it has been important for me to do my best and continue developing my skills and the department that I am responsible for.
Global Head of R&D Process & Tools (China)
My colleagues are a group of people with great talents and expertise from diverse backgrounds with different experiences and cultures. We share our ideas and opinions openly without the fear of being judged. Even when we have different opinions, I always have the full support of my colleagues. Nilfisk provides a very healthy working environment that enables us to create, cooperate and lead. I am constantly inspired by my colleagues and feel a strong trust throughout the company. It’s been such an honor to work with talented colleagues from different product groups and teams with such diverse cultures and backgrounds. Together we are always in search of great ideas, best practices, and challenges, which make work exciting every day. I am very happy to be a part of this journey at Nilfisk!
Technical Lead (Hungary)
Starting my Nilfisk journey as part of a new team and having the possibility to shape the IT organization in Budapest from almost day one was a unique opportunity. Combine that with the Nordic work culture, awesome colleagues, and challenging projects and you have all the ingredients for a great workplace. Since then, I have had the chance to step up and be the Technical Lead for a team of developers, providing valuable tools to the business and helping Nilfisk achieve its full potential. I've been practicing martial arts and self-defense since I was 10 years old, starting with Tae-Kwon-Do and ending up with Krav Maga as I grew older. I always felt the ability to defend yourself, and the discipline required while practicing martial arts gives a certain self-confidence and calmness that I have been able to use in many aspects of life, as well as the workplace.
