1. What is your role at Heidelberg?

As a Heidelberg business analyst, I use data analytics to assess processes, determine requirements and deliver data-driven recommendations and reports to executives and stakeholders.

My role has me working across multiple areas of the business, whether that is conducting internal audits to ensure we meet our ISO 9001 obligations or working on management derived projects such as subscription. On a day-to-day basis, I support the service departments conducting analysis on utilisation, technical service and financial performance to help to identify areas that we need to focus on in order to drive improvements and efficiency.

I assist the field sales team by providing data from Sales 4.0 to help demonstrate the high levels of performance that are possible with a Heidelberg press.

2. What do you like most about Heidelberg?

The people that I work with! Everyone is willing to go out of their way to help you, which is especially important for my role. I usually need to speak to people from different areas of the business to be able to successfully complete my responsibilities.

3. What advice do you have for prospective Heidelberg candidates?

You need to be someone who is flexible and willing to take on new challenges, as we as a company are in a period of transformation as we seek to adapt to the changes within our industry.

4. What are 3 words/phrases you would use to describe Heidelberg?

• Quality Products
• Reliable
• Innovative

5. Tell us three things most people don’t know about you

In my spare time I like to go rock climbing. My favourite place to go within the UK is Portland. I am a big fan of heavy rock and metal bands, such as Metallica, Slipknot and Pantera. I have eaten a lot of weird food when I went travelling in Asia including scorpions, crickets and spiders!

6. What are your hopes for our industry?

That we can adapt to the changes that have come about due to new technologies, to improve upon the range of services that we are able to offer.

7. What is your favourite thing to do in the wonderful city of London?

Going to see live music shows! The atmosphere is always so much better than going to a normal club night, and we’re lucky that most bands touring the UK end up coming to London. The only issue is trying to get the tickets before they sell out!
