Catherine’s story

Q What attracted you to GEA?

R

To be honest, I was headhunted. What made me choose GEA was the job offer itself: working in the field of feeding, project-based work, Europe as a working location and having diverse contacts to many different people. Also, the product line is very interesting and I just fell for it! 

Q What is your job at GEA?

R

My job is to promote automatic feeding in the GEA world and to support my colleagues and our dealers on the product line. This means I conduct trainings, take customers to farm visits, attend shows and fairs and assist with troubleshooting. I work together with our subsidiaries in France, UK, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, Turkey, Italy, Poland, the Baltic countries and Latin America.

Q What do you enjoy most about your job?

R

It’s the versatility: no project is like the other, each farmer is special and every country has its very own characteristics and specificities. I also enjoy the travelling, even though it is sometimes a challenge with small kids at home and the responsibilities family life brings with it.

I really appreciate the opportunity I have to broaden my knowledge around feeding by participating in events like feeding days or research projects. Through this, I not only develop myself, but also the support I can give to our dealers and customers.

Q What is your personal magic moment at GEA?

R

A magic moment for me is every time I stand in front of a farmer, having an open discussion on his feeding and I can see that he understands the possibilities our products offer - like a whole new world opens up for him! That makes my day.

Q What are your ambitions for the future?

R

Become more and more of an expert in feeding. I believe that within GEA there is a huge experience and knowledge regarding milking and of course, to some degree, feeding but I hope that I can “bring my stone” to the house and help us become as known for feeding as we are for milking.
