Meet Javier

 

Testimonial Javier

Me and my background?

My name is Javier, I am a 27 years old Spaniard. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering (Universidad de Vigo, Spain) and also a Master’s Degree in Composite Materials (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain). By the time I joined Gurit, I had had around three years of experience in aeronautical and building sectors.
 

What attracted me to the program?

The whole program was a perfect match when I first saw it. Everything is related to composites and apart from that, there is also the business perspective which really makes a great add-on.

What have I learnt and how this will benefit me in the future?

Up to the end of this second stage, I have been leading projects linked to operations and business strategy. I have been in various Gurit sites working with colleagues from all over the globe. Gurit encourages me to cross new boundaries which are already making an impact and for sure will be more noticeable in the future.

Who would you recommend the program and Gurit to?

People who enjoy solving challenges! You go through an intense learning curve by leading strategic projects. Also, you will be in direct contact with all levels inside the company, enjoy freedom to generate new ideas, work with teams across several Gurit sites and, most important, find a way to make things happen.

Me and my background

My name is Suraj, I am 27 years old and hail from India. I have a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Punjab Technical University in India and a master’s degree in Management and Engineering from RWTH Aachen University in Germany.
 

Before joining Gurit as an Entrepreneurial Trainee I worked for close to 5 years in different roles, industries and geographies including founding a start-up.

What attracted me to the program?

I always like the sense of ownership and ‘Make it happen’ approach and when I learnt about Gurit’s Entrepreneurial Trainee program it was an instant fit.

What have I learnt and how will this benefit me in the future?

During the past one year I had the opportunity to drive several strategic projects with the guidance and mentorship of the executive committee, in different countries and with teams from various cultures. This multidimensional experience has enhanced my personality as a leader, doer and a go-getter, which I believe will prepare for my future roles and responsibilities.

Who would you recommend the program and Gurit to?

If you are flexible, have a ´make it happen´ mind-set, are technically sound and along with that have a business inclination this is the program for you. The program gives you the opportunity to work with the top management, understand different businesses, work with highly talented colleagues and drive strategic projects.
