At just the right distance – welcome, Diana, Lukas and Muhammad!

22.11.2018

“A diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions, and outcomes for everyone,” says a famous quote from Google CEO Sundar Pichai on corporate diversity. This goes well with TSCNET Services: The people who work for us come from many different countries and cultures. The trio of entrants in the Service Operations unit is a perfect example of this.

Let’s just take Lukas Leitner, the new Junior Operations Manager. The 26-year-old is Austrian, but was born in South American Colombia, lived in Malaysia 18,943km away (yes, the rumour is true: he once met Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher there …) and spent most of his life in Germany and Bavaria respectively. In the past seven years Lukas studied energy technology at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg and graduated there in October with a “Master of Science” specialising in electrical energy supply. During his studies, he had already worked for Siemens in the EM DG POC (Energy Management / Digital Grid / Protection, Operation & Control) department and had already become familiar with some of the aspects of the work of a Regional Security Coordinator (RSC). He chose TSCNET Services “because the team spirit, the work ethic and the general environment convinced me – and all this has proven to be absolutely true already in the first days”, says Lukas.

27-year-old Diana Yule has also lived on three continents to date. She comes from Colombia and after completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering and electronics respectively, worked there for four years in the field of energy efficiency and networks. She has also lived in the United States. There, the sports enthusiast Diana shone as a football player, among other things. “I generally liked team sports better, but after entering professional life it was easier to start running because of the working hours. Today I like it at least enough to run half marathons,” she says. If there’s a call for sport somewhere – she’s there! This also is true for her move to Germany and her start at TSCNET Services: Electricity grids already were her thing, but she finds the European one to be the most interesting. Now she wants to settle in Germany and build her social circle in Munich, while she can deepen and broaden her knowledge in her profession.

The background of the third newcomer to Unit Service Operations, Muhammad Sibghat-Ullah (also simply called Sibghat), is also not so easy to explain. The new Operations Manager comes from Vancouver on the Canadian west coast – 8,338km from Munich. After a bachelor’s and master’s degree in electrical engineering with a focus on power System engineering, he also obtained a “Professional Engineer” license in the province of British Columbia, Canada, which certifies him to take professional responsibility for his projects in BC. He has at least six years of experience in power system engineering with specialist knowledge in areas such as load flow analysis, substation planning and design, protection and control planning, design and commissioning as well as project management. In addition, he has an MBA from IE Business School in Madrid, Spain, to make a good start in the European energy industry. “I joined the company three weeks ago and it was a terrific experience so far,” says Sibghat. “Being a relatively new company, I believe TSCNET can present tremendous growth opportunities. I work in a team of fantastic colleagues and every day brings a new learning and social experience. I am finding life in Germany pretty amazing since living and working in Europe had been a dream of mine.”

That’s how we like to leave it: No matter where you come from – TSCNET Services offers excellent working conditions and great perspectives. It’s all about your knowledge, skills, attitude and efforts.
