Susanne Schymanietz has been working in sales for over 34 years, mostly in the automotive sector and always internationally.

"Always on the ball" is the motto of the native of Bremen and mother of two adult daughters, who has been living in Preussisch Oldendorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, for over 30 years.

Most recently, she worked for Hans Hess Autoteile at the Minden site, formerly Schwenker Autoteile, where she has been responsible for market entry in France since the beginning of 2018 and took over export management a year later. Before that, she was Area Sales Manager for a well-known OEM, OES and aftermarket supplier
Responsible for the development and support of various European markets in the vehicle electronics division.

While still a law student, she set up a retail and wholesale business that imported VW parts from the US and sold them throughout Europe.
Vehicles were repaired and restored in the workshop, which also belongs to the company. The mainstay was the construction and repair of air-cooled boxer engines for series production, for the performance-enhanced area and for racing. As she says herself, petrol is literally in her blood.

She would now like to successfully contribute her background and her international experience and knowledge in the independent aftermarket to her new position in our company.

Appreciation and respect are very important to the trained coach, who has also worked as a job coach for several years.
