"For those who muck in, the sky is the limit with us."

Alexander S., Senior Management Director and Mentor


If you are prepared to sort things out in the WALTER GROUP, the sky is the limit. Alexander is a shining example of this. On his journey from HAK graduate (commercial academy) to Head of Operations, he relied on his talent and ambition, as well as on the support of a mentor who both challenged and encouraged him.

As Head of Operations at LKW WALTER, Alexander's position comes between Group Division Manager and Board of Management in LKW WALTER's organisational structure. Such a rise doesn't just happen out of nowhere. "In 2002, I started very conventionally as Transport Manager. The dynamic development of LKW WALTER constantly created new opportunities, which I just had to take advantage of." He did just that with lots of commitment, as well as continuous professional education.

Alexander found his mentor's tips at least as important. Today, the passionate football fan takes on the mentor's role himself. "We get a lot of emerging talent through the door, who quickly prove themselves as top players. I use my experience to give them tips to help them find a position that most closely matches their individual abilities as quickly as possible."

"The motto is to challenge and encourage."

Alexander's personal tip:

If you want to step into international business at LKW WALTER, a background education in economics/commerce is the best prerequisite. For those who match the company profile, muck in and are ready for further education, the sky is the limit.
