What others say about Stefanie Schweitzer

“Steffi is the perfect mix of highly ambitious and pleasantly relaxed. This makes working with her simplicity itself.” – Natalie Seibert

“Steffi is always in a good mood and says she really looks forward to the plentiful problems we cause her in her role in Finance. ‘Problems need solutions,’ she says. Such resilience! Her inner hardened steel structure only wobbles when she can’t find her yoga mat in the morning because her children have made it disappear without trace.” – Dr. Reinhard Schmitt

“The first thing I learned: if you want her attention, never say Stefanie, say Steffi. And then there’s her remarkable ability to manage a huge backlog. I still haven’t worked out the secret of how she manages to do it.” – Sven Fissenewert
