My role as a Manager for Finance & Sales Support is very diversified!
How did you join Alo? In a few words could you describe your main tasks in your position? In 2000, the brand “Trima” was acquired by Ålö and having worked for Trima before, I was moving to Ålö as a new employee.
My role is very diversified. As Manager for the Finance & Sales Support department, I am involved in tasks such as HR/personnel issues, insurances, monthly and year end reporting to the Ålö Group as well as make sure that our reporting is locally compliant with the German legislation. I am also the key conversation partner for accountants, tax consultants and the German tax authorities.
What type of background is needed for your job? My background of business administration helps me in meeting the needs of the local authorities as well as representing our local entity towards the Ålö Group.
I also believe that in a local sales company good human knowledge is essential in order to understand the seller and customer side, and therefore be able to support our sales activities in the best way.
Why is Alo an attractive employer? Ålö is a medium-sized company with a global reach. Because of this global nature, there are so many opportunities for employees to make progress on their own development paths. I enjoy working with our international colleagues because when exchanging views, it opens up your mind in a different way to see things in a new perspective!
