MENUSHKA - HR DIRECTOR

"Having just joined Saint-Gobain as HR Manager for South Africa, I had the opportunity to move with my husband and children after being offered a position at the head office in Paris! I spent a total of 3 years there, looking after international mobility. Working with people from other cultures was a wonderful and challenging experience.

Even today, back in South Africa, I continue to work with people from very different backgrounds. That's what I like about Saint-Gobain: even after 300 years, the Group manages to expand into new countries while preserving its human values."

PEDRO - INTERNATIONAL SALES REGIONAL MANAGER

"At the end of my studies, I was taken on as an intern in Brazil at Saint-Gobain Sekurit, a brand specialized in the manufacture of automotive glazing. I stayed there for 5 years! First as a maintenance engineer, then as maintenance manager. After that, I was promoted to team manager. These early positions gave me the experience I needed to become the plant manager I am today, and I have many fond memories of them. As someone who loves to move, I can say that I was well served at Saint-Gobain!

Hardly 2 years went by without me changing jobs, functions or markets, and I even had the opportunity to work for countries neighboring Brazil. Beyond the technical skills I've been able to acquire, it's above all as a human being that I've grown, working with my colleagues and striving to be the best manager I can be."

RANIA - TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION MANAGER

"The diversity of cultures at Saint-Gobain never ceases to amaze me! I started my career with the Group as an industrial sales engineer. Then I had the opportunity to move into the glass industry. Throughout my career, the teams I've worked with have always been there to support me and help me develop in my work. Today, I'm in charge of industrial projects for glass in Egypt, a job I'm passionate about and for which I'm grateful.

What particularly stimulates me in this job is being able to work with colleagues in India, or in the Middle East, and to appreciate their different ways of seeing the world while sharing the same framework, the same values and sometimes even the same jokes!"

JOAO - FACTORY DIRECTOR

"After a two-year work-study program with Saint-Gobain Isover in Spain, I made a definitive return to the professional world thanks to a V.I.E. international voluntary assignment opportunity in Mexico! In South America, I studied the environmental impact of the solutions we were selling on a local and regional scale. I was then offered a position at Saint-Gobain Valoref in... France! I didn't speak a word of French, but my team made me feel welcome and my skills improved very quickly.

My greatest pride is to continue to make an impact around the world, like in South Africa where we managed to recycle 100 tons of glass furnace waste this year!"
