Diana works at SEG Automotive in a leadership position, at our Headquarter office in Stuttgart. Her career started at Bosch Latin America in Brazil, back in 2009. She then moved to the Bosch central purchasing office in Germany, in 2016. At that time, SEG Automotive was still the Starter Motors and Generators division of the Bosch group. The carve-out was already in preparation, but many parameters of the new organization still had to be defined.
Diana was presented the possibility of joining SEG Automotive shortly after her arrival in Germany. She admits leaving Bosch was not part of her initial plan, but the overall project and its interesting challenges very quickly convinced her.
According to an analysis by Deloitte and Automotive News, women could and should play a major role to help the automotive industry overcome its current challenges, but are still underrepresented, especially in leadership positions. Diana is a prime example that things can turn out differently. Less than two years after she took the offer from SEG Automotive, and still under 30 years old at the time, Diana became a Senior Manager Direct Purchasing, leading a team of nine people in Germany and Hungary. Her team is quite international, including people from Sweden, Turkey, Germany, India, Hungary, and Brazil.
“Joining a company which is undergoing a transition – from a multinational corporation, to a mid-sized independent enterprise – with the possibility of re-defining our own processes and structure, opens a door to an incredible experience: the openness and willingness to change as well as the adrenaline! And when you respond successfully to challenges, there is truly space for you to grow. Being a foreign young woman, whose mother tongue is not German, I had anticipated it would not be easy for me. But seeing my professional career developing as I work for it, and my company not just recognizing my contribution, but actually empowering me, is at the end… exactly how it should be.”
As an highly competitive person, Mauricio is always willing to overcome his own limits. He joined SEG Automotive as a Quality Engineer in 2018 and is now part of our customer team. What makes him really special is that he completed his first Ironman Race last year: A triathlon, which consist of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a 26.22-mile (42.20 km) marathon run. The Ironman is widely considered to be the most difficult one-day sporting event in the world.
This race requires not only physical preparation, but also mental focus and dedication. Leading up to the big day, Mauricio trained for 9 months with this race in mind – while also fulfilling all his daily duties at work. SEG Automotive enabled him to arrange his office hours to fit his training schedule and work from home when necessary. This flexibility has also helped him to balance his extensive training sessions with his personal life, so his family would not feel so much the impact of his trainings. His manager has also been very supportive, encouraging him to keep pushing for his dream and even following his progress during the race.
"I am constantly looking for new challenges that take me out of my comfort zone, and this is also why I like to work at SEG Automotive. When you train to deliver high-performance results, it is not just something that helps you in sports. It is a state of mind, it is a way of life that drives you towards excellence, no matter if it is in your personal or professional life."
Two years ago, she joined our team in Portugal as an intern in the finance department. As her nine month internship came to an end, there were no open full-time positions in finance. However, a new position was about to be created in Sales. At SEG Automotive, we always first look at our internal talent pool. We keep track of our associates talents, strengths and interests to provide them long term career opportunities. The expertise Inês had acquired in Finance translated very well to the position of “Accounts Receivable” – where she is now in direct contact with a wide scope of customers, but also serves as an interface to our sales teams and finance department.
"When my internship ended, SEG Automotive gave me the opportunity to use the expertise I built up and apply it to a new area in a full-time position. They took into consideration the strengths they knew I had – so I did not have to start all over again – and supported me in making the change from finance to the sales department. I am very happy with this new role of working closely with our many customers as well as our sales and finance teams."
