Interview with Max

Max Schümann joined the Solana Group in 2017 as a trainee after completing his apprenticeship in horticulture. After the one-year traineeship – having gained insight into the various divisions of the company – Max accepted the offer of a job as Junior Project Manager.

“Looking back, it was the right decision to stay with Solana – initially still combined with a role as field representative in eastern Germany. Later on, in product management, I was able to set my own priorities and develop my knowledge through customer contact. I particularly liked the international background. It was also exciting to be involved in optimising processes in the company in my role as product manager.”

In spring 2023, Max, who had in the meantime become a father, moved on to become the manager of the breeding station in Windeby.

“It really was a big step for me to take on this responsible task. As a product manager I was on the road a lot all year round, and largely responsible for myself. That is different now. In my current position, I mainly work from one site. What particularly attracted me to this new task was the fact that various key aspects come together here. As well as breeding and research, it includes production. This is a locally based activity that nevertheless plays a significant role in the international business of the company, so that we continue to network closely. My goal is to keep optimising our procedures together with my team, and to contribute my expertise in this new area.”
