Matthew Emery, Technical Certifier within the Electrical Safety Department, United Kingdom
"I have been working as Technical Certifier and Senior Engineer within the Electrical Safety Department in the UK for the past eight years. We support manufacturers to sell their products in global markets with our test reports and certificates. In my role, I am responsible for testing, training and reviewing electrical and electronic projects that have been submitted for test.
The job is very diverse: working with many different manufacturers means we are dealing with a wide range of products. Every day is different, whether it is learning about a new technology, or keeping abreast of the latest regulations. As we are assisting clients with their global market access, we need to operate to global regulations, and leverage the TÜV SÜD worldwide network.
During my time at the company, I have been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to travel to many international locations to develop customer relationships and also to meet new colleagues.”
Juan Portillo, Technical Director, Periodical Testing In-spection, Spain
“I work with my team and external partners such as the government to develop and implement procedures for inspecting road vehicles. It is our responsibility to foresee and detect vehicle defects and avoid accidents and environmental damage. Also, as the technology within cars gradually advances, we must come up with new inspection procedures. I genuinely feel that in some way, we save lives, and this inspires me to work harder and better.”
Faizah Zainodin, Manager of Marketing Operations, Singapore
“I lead the global website team and we are responsible for the strategy, management and development of a content management system that globally powers our websites. The website is an important channel and is the heart of our online interactions with our customers. To successfully launch 42 sites globally, we trained more than 200 content authors and adopted an agile project management approach. Working closely with our global colleagues across functions while collectively working towards a common goal is one of my most fulfilling achievements.”
Dr Yanfeng Liang, Mathematician within the Digital Services Team, United Kingdom
"In a data-rich company like TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, I am constantly working with a variety of data coming from different instruments, which contain insightful information which highlights their conditions and performance. I am passionate about using different modelling techniques to extract hidden information in data, and uncover the answers to questions such as What is the remaining useful life of an instrument? Are there anomalies and errors to be rectified? When will an instrument need to be recalibrated?
My role as a mathematician within the Digital Services Team offers me the flexibility of not only conducting research and improving the performance of models, but expanding my knowledge and applying this across different sectors, such as life sciences. The ability to use results from these models to make an impact in real-life scenarios is extremely satisfying.”
Stephan Mayer, Head of Tower, Foundation and Internals for Wind Turbines, Germany
“I personally enjoy working in the field of renewable energies as I can make a contribution to a sustainable future. My job is really varied; quality assurance is just as much a part of it as customer meetings, visits to trade fairs and conferences, and the professional growth of my team – the development of young employees especially is a great and rewarding task. My role is also about opening up new fields of activity, winning new customers and thus optimally positioning ourselves and TÜV SÜD for the future.”
Shridhar Ravikumar, Executive Consultant for Advanced Manufacturing in Digital Services, Singapore
"Being at a company like TÜV SÜD brings me immense pleasure. I enjoy fostering trust with clients, empowering them with the latest technology trends, and helping them to identify the impact these technologies can have on their business so that they can reach the highest benchmarks within their industry. Our team members come from diverse industries and backgrounds, but together as one we have the shared vision of bringing our clients to the next level."
Beng Yang Ong, Business Line Manager Commercial Products, Singapore
“I’m a business line manager responsible for the certification of commercial products. This means my team is often the last port of call before any product under the commercial umbrella reaches users. One of my proudest moments was when we supported Singapore in their fight against COVID-19. We helped our industry write the safety and quality guidelines for the production and distribution of materials such as nasal swabs and face shields. In the grandscheme of things, I played a small role, but it was an important one with direct impact. Everyone in the world wanted to help somehow – and I was actually able to do that.”
Eike-Henning Hans, Testing Specialist Medical Devices & Healthcare, Germany
“As a testing specialist, I oversee the development of medical products that make people's lives easier such as smart hospital beds that can be controlled via a tablet and exoskeletons that help people to walk again. It’s exciting to become familiar with such highly specialized technology and develop new testing procedures for them. I’m proud to be part of such a renowned group as TÜV SÜD and contribute to making products better and safer. I have my career in my own hands and can set my own goals and achieve them with ambition.”
Patrycjusz Idzikowski, Business Line & Team Manager for Structural Engineering, Germany
“As a structural engineer who tests amusement park rides, I sometimes feel as if TÜV SÜD is just a giant playground for me. Almost by definition, if something comes to us, it’s because the client is trying something new. Perhaps they want an existing ride to go higher or faster, or maybe they have a prototype for us to test. Because of this, we end up handling a lot of new technologies and get a sneak peek at where the future is headed. Even if the technology is not new for us, it’s new for our clients, which is also exciting!”
Stefano Portelli, Sales Representative, Italy
“For me, a job needs two things: a positive atmosphere and the possibility to grow. I get both in my job as a sales representative for the Business Assurance division. As someone in a fairly junior position, I have a motivation to learn, and my time at TÜV SÜD is certainly an education. I’m lucky enough to be taught by those who aren’t just at the top of their game, but are also enthusiastic about what they do even after decades in the industry. From these incredible people I haven’t just learnt the theory of the work, I’ve learnt to be passionate about it too.”
Silvia Ugarte, Elevator Inspector, Spain
“I’m one of the youngest elevator inspectors TÜV SÜD has in Madrid. I travel to sites to check the suspension, electronics, drive system, whether safety mechanisms engage when needed, and much more. As a young woman, convincing the (mostly male) staff I encounter to take me seriously is challenging. But I am the expert responsible for ensuring that all safety regulations are complied with. Knowing this provides me with the strength to be strict and emphasise rules are rules; even in difficult situations. That’s how I’m leaving my mark not only on society, but within my industry and TÜV SÜD itself!”
