In the right place at the right time
David is one of the four managing directors of the arano group. At first, his success story sounds like the typical “from rags to riches” story. However, he himself describes it a little differently, which fits David's personality: Direct, honest, and down to earth.
His career at the arano group began in summer 2018 when he decided to gain work experience as a placement student during the final semester of his economics studies at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. He found the job advertisement of “Pacura med” – today one of the arana group brands – and applied on a Saturday. On the Monday, he received a call inviting him to an interview which took place on the same afternoon, and in August 2018 David finally started as a placement student in the back office at Pacura med in Nuremberg. He says: “I was lucky. I was in the right place at the right time and had the opportunity to grow with the company.”
At the time, the full team still consisted of seven people and a hands-on mentality was needed. The tasks were mostly regarding the initial implementation of the respective projects and there were few specifications, so David designed the fleet guidelines on his own during his time as a placement student, for example. Today, the arano group's large fleet is managed by a separate department, fleet management.
