Position: Team leader: assembly, board

"With endurance, persistence, and creativity"

How did you come to work for the DRÄXLMAIER Group?
As soon as I learned that DRÄXLMAIER was opening a site in Kavadarci, I knew that I wanted to work there sooner or later. So I applied – and was successful. After two and a half years, I can say that I made the right choice.

How would you describe your city to your foreign colleagues?
Kavadarci is a quiet, small town in Macedonia, which lies in the middle of a large wine-growing area. Everyone has the chance here to find work and lead a good life.

What is your greatest professional challenge at the moment?
To always meet my obligations in a timely manner. As a team leader, I have a great deal of responsibility that I must handle. I am also the coach for the DRÄXLMAIER football team in Kavadarci – a task that I am very proud of. I was also on the team during the last tournament in Vilsbiburg, Germany.

You never go to work in the morning without …
… perfectly styled hair and Macedonian coffee – you should definitely try that once.

When you come home tense, how do you relax?
I don’t let things get so bad that I am tense. If it does happen, then I leave it at work and enjoy my son Blagoj. Playing with him is the best relaxation you can imagine.

We all have our habits. What are yours?
If I have something set in my mind, I follow it with a great deal of endurance and persistence. However, as I work toward a goal, I am mostly very creative.
