General info

1.    How did you come to the leather industry?
After finishing school, in Arad, I was sent to Sebis to work in my older brother’s company where I worked as an apprentice for seven years. At first, I saw it as a punishment, but with time it has become a way of being which I would not change with anything else, for anything in the world. In 1997, I decided to start my own company, to test myself, develop and grow. 10 years have already passed.

I’m the sole administrator of my own skin, fur, garments production company. I take care of raw materials and auxiliaries, I’m in charge of technology, soles.
   3. What qualifications or training did you do to be there?
I learned everything at the workplace. My first teacher was my older brother. Severe and with brotherly love. Then, the companies that I visited or visited us. Peers in the relatively large community in Sebis as well as the mistakes I made which have unfortunately taken their toll.
  4. What do you most appreciate in your job?
The opportunity it offers me, to provide my children with a much better future than I had when I was young.
