You have two different management roles to fulfill: You're a father and a member of the executive board at Zühlke Engineering. Is it a case of double the work or double the pleasure for you?
Raising children is definitely a job in itself, but it doesn’t feel like it (laughs). In all seriousness, though, the youthful spirit of my children is what gives me the energy to meet the day head-on and what helps me unwind in the evening. There’s also the fact that my job is highly varied and inspiring. As Managing Director, I am responsible for ensuring that we help our customers achieve their goals. This means I frequently travel to company sites, visit our teams and have conversations with people there that are largely gratifying. That’s why I’d say my dual role is more ‘double the pleasure’ than anything else. And it certainly plays into maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
