Introduction Lena Helmtsvon Lena Helmts
Hi, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself briefly.
My name is Lena Helmts and I joined Schoeck Canada in April 2012. I am very excited about the opportunity to work for this great company and expand Schoeck’s market for ComBAR® in Canada as a Sales Representative.
I am originally from Bremen, Germany and I moved to Canada about a year and a half ago. It has been a great experience so far. I live with my boyfriend, who is Canadian, and our crazy dog Hurley. I finished my Masters degree (Diplom Kffr) in Business Administration with majors in Accounting and International & Strategic Management in November 2010 at the University of Mannheim. Having said that, I am familiar with the “Badische Dialekt” a little from my experience in Mannheim and surrounding areas and hopefully won’t be totally lost during my training in Baden-Baden in mid May.
I have worked in a variety of industry settings, including positions in heavy equipment manufacturing here in Canada, with Research In Motion (BlackBerry) and in Investment Banking in Germany. I enjoy playing volleyball, indoors during the long Canadian winters and very soon the beach volleyball season will start. Despite being from the flat North of Germany I love downhill skiing, I train horses and I also started to play golf.
The first month was great and I am looking forward to an exciting future with Schoeck in Canada and hope to contribute to its growing success.
