Account Manager, Germany


Paper based packaging is definitely more than a brown box. From my point of view, Smurfit Kappa can give you an excellent combination of challenge and support.

What has been the most rewarding experience at Smurfit Kappa?

  • I won my first customer at the age of 19.
  • 2008 – Innovation Award Toshiba Europe
  • 2010 – Sustainability Award Fish and more Packaging development
  • 2011 – Innovation Award Fish and more Business development
  • Taking part in the Advanced Management Development Programme 2011. A completely new experience, an opportunity to get to know over 25 colleagues from all over Europe and Latin America. Also a chance to meet the senior management of the company.

What does one working week look like?

I have never the same week. On average I travel a lot, usually 3-4 days in the week and spend 1-2 days in my office or home-office. During my travel time I visit customers, this is in order to conduct price negotiations but also to present new packaging solutions, implement a new product or to investigate their supply chain. I also spend time working with my internal sales team and discuss new developments and projects with my development team.
