I’m very self-motivated and it has always been my ambition to work in supplier quality management. Ever since I was at technical college, I’ve pushed myself to learn – both through study and through having a variety of experiences. As a result, I’ve been able to develop my career and achieve my goals.

Sustainability is the future For me, the environment is super important. I’m lucky enough to live on a farm. When I come home from work, I go off-grid, and spend time with my family and our animals. From a professional perspective, sustainability is everything. It represents the future of Aurobay. We’re finding ways to push powertrain solutions towards zero, which I find very motivating.

Circularity is key Everyone here plays their part in our sustainability journey. Circularity – where we reuse engine components and materials rather than sourcing them from scratch – is key to how we do business. It enables us to make best use of scarce resources and keep our footprint low. An example of this is reused aluminium, which is an important material for our cylinder blocks. One of my responsibilities is to work with suppliers and ensure that the specifications are correct, and the quality is as good as using new aluminium.

Teamwork is how we do it It's never a one-man show at Aurobay. I have deep knowledge of cylinder blocks, while others in my team understand Plastic or Oil systems, for example. We collaborate and share knowledge, so that together we can be efficient, and achieve more.
