Dario Wenz, Quality Engineer
Who am I
After my A level graduation in Germany, I joined Grundfos in 2015 as a part of an integrated degree programme in Industrial Engineering and Business Management. Grundfos has sponsored my degree while I have been working for the company between all semesters throughout my bachelor. With this agreement, I got to try out different departments in Grundfos Germany as i.e. controlling, maintenance, and business development. After writing my bachelor thesis with Grundfos, I finished my degree in 2019 where I moved to Denmark to work at the headquarter in Group Quality.
In my role as a project manager, I get to influence not only the present, but also the future.
How I make a difference
Working with quality excellence, I am leading a project called QRQC (Quick Response Quality Control) and similar strategic projects related to our overall quality capabilities. My role is to steer the project in the right direction making sure we reach our goals. I am proud of this role as for example the QRQC project detects quality issues or deviations from standards and immediately aims to solve them. This requires to be good at change management, as I essentially need to create new group standards and together with key stakeholders make the necessary changes. That is very important, as improving the overall quality level also means improving customer satisfaction.
Thriving with responsibility
I am driven by being a part of Grundfos’ long term journey. In my role as a project manager, I get to influence not only the present, but also the future. And to get this opportunity in a large global organisation like Grundfos, is something I am truly proud of. Moreover, my managers support and trust me to make the right decisions. Hence, I really enjoy setting my own direction and taking on the responsibility of steering the process in the direction that in the end will add the most value for Grundfos and our customers.
Living the values
Grundfos is an honest company and very people oriented. The company values are not just a piece of paper in a drawer, but management and employees live them. People here are very open, and all communication is very personal. I enjoy all the good discussions about any topic and new ideas, and even managers are always listening and trying to adopt your ideas. I really like the collaborative working culture here at Grundfos.
Believe it or not, I have never watched Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings.
