I still remember my second day, May 2th 2006, in Vanderlande. I started in Vanderlande as Internal auditor / Jr. Business Controller. And that period was the most busy time for the audit department. That made my manager decide to take me immediately on the plane in supporting the audits…..in Barcelona. So my 2nd lunch in Vanderlande was in the harbor of Barcelona. There i learned to eat the real fish. Since that moment Barcelona felt as home. Like Freddy Mercury sang

Barcelona, how can I forget?
The moment that you stepped Into the room you took my breath away

I can’t say anymore that Barcelona is my second home, while I got last year in Vanderlande a great new opportunity: Finance Manager / Business Controller in Siegen (D). There I am in the next amazing chapter in the world of Vanderlande.

Cheers all, on us and a healthy stay in Vanderlande
