In this Episode we talked with Christine Cheminay, Director Global Purchasing in Germany about the influence of parents on your career inspirations and decisions, how to combine work and family, why diversity is so important for any organization and why she thinks that e-Mobility is here to stay (unlike in the 1900s where Electric Cars had their first Boom – a Fun Fact if you did not know) and the sustainability challenges that need to be tackled in the light of a need to decrease the carbon footprint.

Christine Cheminay covered several purchasing functions at Webasto since 2001. Today she is responsible for Purchasing of the business unit Battery Systems, located in Stockdorf near Munich.
