Experience report - Maria Kennedy | Director Business Office Transmission Systems

I have been with Transmission Systems (formerly Getrag) since the beginning of 2001 where I started off in Sales at GETRAG FORD Transmissions in Cologne. I soon became responsible for “Aftermarket: Service Parts and Warranty”, which included contract drafting and negotiation, price negotiations and customer service for Ford, Volvo and MG Rover. In 2004 I took on the responsibility for Chrysler as a Key Account Manager. In 2008 however, for personal reasons, I made the decision to move to Stuttgart, not knowing how this would influence my career.

I was delighted when Transmission Systems supported my decision and offered me a job in Controlling at Transmission Systems in Untergruppenbach, near Stuttgart. Then, in 2010, I became manager of PMO (Project Management Office), which gave me the opportunity to work much more globally, dealing with many different cultures and constantly developing new areas of knowledge.

After 5 years in Untergruppenbach I have finally come back to my roots in Sales and I am now in charge of the double clutch transmission business for Ford, based in Untergruppenbach. I have enjoyed my time here and am looking forward to an exciting future.
