“If you're flexible and committed, you can achieve everything at LKW WALTER.”

Christoph H., Deputy Group Division Manager and prime example of a career

Christoph H.

A good tip from a friend is worth its weight in gold. Especially when it's based on personal experience. So Christoph did well when he trusted a friend at LKW WALTER and decided to follow him into international business.

Before graduating from the Commercial Academy in Wörgl, Christoph had discovered not just a passion for football, but also a talent for languages. So, what to do? Forge a career by joining the ranks of a foreign company? Or offer his language expertise to an international logistics company based in Tyrol? "Luckily, a friend of mine at the football club was already working for LKW WALTER. What he told me about his professional career quickly convinced me that this was the way to go."

In fact, things moved very quickly for Christoph. The trainee programme started straight after graduating. Beginning as a transport manager and just a few years later, he rose to the position of Division Manager. "Anyone who is flexible and committed, who enjoys further professional training and is ready to take on responsibility, can achieve everything at LKW WALTER".

Note: Meanwhile Christoph has also made a further career move. He has been Deputy Group Division Manager since October 2020.

"You should be amenable to advice but still listen to your inner voice."

Christoph's personal tip:

It is important to be amenable to advice, opinions and tips of other people. But I also recommend everyone to listen to your own inner voice, especially once you are sure about something.

Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business. Because we educate new employees as part of our "Train the Winner" trainee programme and we cover both theory and practice. However, there are some areas in which we greatly appreciate relevant experience and previous knowledge.
