"You would be responsible for the complete maintenance at a site or in a region."
I joined the team at Akiem in 2009, not long after it was first set up.
My very first task was to create the Legal Affairs Department! I’ve worked on creating and overseeing legal formalities, drafting and reviewing lease agreements and supplier contracts, managing insurance for our locomotive fleet, multi-million-euro procurement contracts, formation of new legal entities, increasing the share capital and so on. The Akiem group has grown considerably since the early days. Today, my team and I work both with people from Akiem and from Akiem technik, and I also act as company secretary to all Group companies.
These missions are international and very varied, and we solve numerous challenges on a daily basis, that’s what the group Akiem stands for.
