Divisional Training and NPI Manager - Lucca, Italy

Since school I have loved maths and science, but particularly the practical and hands-on aspects and this is what drove me to choose engineering as my career. I went on to be awarded a Degree and a PhD in Chemical Engineering, completed in 2000 and 2004 respectively.
I joined Rotork in 2004 as an Inside Sales Engineer, and after a few years moved to the Technical Training Department to manage Product Training from Sales to Service for all the company subsidiaries. This change allowed me to fully utilise my technical background and travel all over the world, enjoying every single day of my job.
Alongside training I currently also manage New Product Introduction for the Fluid Systems Division, working closely with the Divisional R&D Department.
I remember that when I was at the University, the engineering slogan was ‘Join Engineering, you will be a Technician and travel the World.’ Well, years later I can tell this fully applied to me, with immense and deep satisfaction!
