3 questions to Fatlum Ahmeti | FMS Hamburg

1. What is your job at FMS?

My job as a Business Development Manager concentrates on gaining new customers, as well as intensifying the customer contact and increasing order-volumes of already existing customer. The implementation of new business, together with the associated customer care, is also part of my daily job.

2. How was your professional development at FMS?

After my apprenticeship at FMS, I started as a department clerk at the Import General Cargo department, where I worked for 5 years. After that, I was nominated as a team leader and worked for 3 years as Manager for Customer Service and Sales, responsible for 4 team members. During this time, besides my operational responsibility, I also took over sales activities. In 2017, I got the opportunity to work as Business Development Manager, which I have accepted. From my own experience I can say, that FMS gives you the opportunity to develop your career.

3. What makes FMS a great employer for you?

One of the main reasons that makes FMS a good employer for me, is the friendly and respectful contact with the colleagues as well as a good working atmosphere within the department. In addition, you can bring in new ideas, no matter if you are a staff, team leader or Business Development Manager. FMS gives the employee the opportunity, to develop his / her career further and to support the employees from their own team.
