What did you do before you joined Thuasne®?
Marcela: After graduating I started out as a textile engineer at Tricoul Rosu Arad. I then took up the position of Production Manager in a German company before joining Hannes GSC Romania, where I gained almost 19 years of experience. My responsibilities involved quality management, operations and working within the technical department. I joined Thuasne® in 2020 as Production Manager in phlebology. I wanted to work in a field with a significant impact on people's health and well-being to improve their quality of life.
Rodica: After graduating, I started out at Tricoul Rosu, then worked in German and French companies, acquiring a diversified experience in the textile sector. My career path brought me to Textile Medicale in 2012. I had heard good things about Thuasne®, being a stable group, working to better the health and well-being of a number of populations. So I became Production Manager in traumatology there.
What are you currently tasked with within the Group?
Marcela: I supervise the implementation of programmes by mobilising the necessary resources and ensuring coordination of teams to reach the set objectives, while guaranteeing quality customer service.
Rodica: I manage sector operations by adapting capabilities, ensuring compliance with ISO standards, by analysing indicators and by setting up action plans to maintain operational efficiency.
Marcela: I did not have any significant difficulties adjusting to the Group's requirements, even if my current area of work has been and remains a major challenge for me.
Rodica: I was able to adapt to the system put in place by Thuasne® and improve my skills in French to communicate better. This made it easier for me to integrate the team and to contribute to the company's objectives.
Marcela: I could say that my main challenges today are to adapt material and human resources to the various changes underway, to develop a new activity and to reach set objectives.
Rodica: Mine are to ensure production capacities, to ensure the personnel remains flexible and versatile, to digitalise and further our technologies and finally to increase productivity.
Marcela: It was the ideal time to review my career path. I would like to thank everyone who put their trust in me by offering me the opportunity to embark on a new experience and challenge
towards the end of my career.
Rodica: I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for having me for this interview. It is a precious opportunity that allowed me to reflect on my 34-year long career, the last 12 years of which I have spent within the Group. I am grateful to have been welcomed into the wonderful Thuasne® family, and I hope I will have the opportunity to further contribute to the company's ever-growing success. Thanks again for this opportunity.
