“Intensive discussions are what I enjoy most”

Daniel
Controller, Shanghai

In his short year at Röhm, Daniel has shown his resilience: "I can work well under pressure," he says. It's a trait he has demonstrated right from his first few months on the job in times of price increases and pandemic. "In the management team, we developed solutions to cushion the impact." His extensive professional experience also serves him well: for seven years, he was previously employed as a controller in a petrochemical company, also in Shanghai. He has supported the management there with business forecasts, management reports and profitability analyses since the plant was founded - knowledge that now benefits him. "These different roles help me perform my current job." Röhm is not the first German company Daniel has worked for: his career began at a heavy machinery manufacturer in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He hopes to continue growing in his responsible roles. He greatly appreciates the fact that Röhm supports him in his personal goals. When Daniel wants to clear his head, he does sports outside in the great outdoors: he goes hiking and trail running. "I like being off the beaten track in the open countryside - it's the best way for me to relax."
