Business Development Sr. Manager

WHAT INSPIRES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?

 

Every day Life at NOVARES is different. Working at NOVARES is like real life. You need courage to evolve, drive and target your own plan. The plan you build can change depending of the circumstances and should be adapted accordingly.
I am long distance runner and to succeed in a Marathon, I need a plan to be well trained to finish the race. It’s is the same at work you need to give yourself a plan, courage to follow-up, and work as part of a team. Collaboration to succeed as one team is really what’s best.
When I arrive at the office or am at a customer meeting, I think to myself; many people are working hard every day in the plant, and in all departments doing their best so I need to translate this in the best way possible in front of our customers.

Plant Director

YOU HAVE BEEN WITH THE COMPANY FOR OVER 10 YEARS. WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING FOR NOVARES?

 

Although I have been with the company for over 10 years, I still have passion to get involve into the daily job. The growth of the group is booming and we are creative in our investments and are expanding our core technology. I am really for the ‘one team, one goal’ approach – it makes sense.
I do welcome challenges to define potential opportunities and sustainable improvements. Growing up with this company is the best reward to me.

Kera Chen – Shanghai China

Skill Center Director

WHAT INSPIRES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?

 

The main inspiration comes from my team. They are curious and willing to help, to provide ideas for innovation, to improve their technical skills and then to open new doors. They are result oriented. When we have a technical or resource issue or any other concern, they always provide solutions and implement them either in our Skill Centers, in our plants or for the benefit of our customers. One common target is to quickly find good solutions .
They are open minded and they work in a natural way with our Technical Centers everywhere in the world and this helps us achieve our global strategy.
They have team spirit and always willing to help. It’s a daily pleasure to work with my team and they inspire and motivate me.

Corporate Finance Director

HOW HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE AT NOVARES CHANGED YOUR PROFESSIONAL CAREER?

 

Since I arrived in 1992, I have always had to face new challenges and have been strongly involved in the Group’s progression. I don’t like changing companies regularly and working at NOVARES for the past decade, has for me been a way to keep being dynamic and improving my skills.
I have been given the chance to grow in my skills and responsibilities, from managing 4 plants at finance level in the North of France to today, I oversee the Group’s Corporate Finance department.

Manufacturing Engineering Leader

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE CONSIDERING JOINING THE COMPANY? WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED?

 

If a person had the opportunity to join NOVARES, he or she would be lucky to find an entrepreneurial spirit in terms of management and atmosphere. There is also a nice and interesting cultural mix within the team. The advantage would be that the person will have training on new technologies either in special techniques or in sustainable development. I would also mention there will be a potential personal and professional evolution within the company.
