New financial manager gives a good account

02.03.2020

At TSCNET Services, we are committed to providing the best possible service for our shareholding transmission system operators (TSOs). International understanding is thus not actually our primary corporate objective, but we are nevertheless encouraged by the perception of our new Senior Finance & Reporting Manager in the Corporate Services business unit, Houssein Ben Boujemaa. We were already able to recruit him in September last year. When asked what particularly intrigued him about TSCNET in addition to his personal career prospects, Houssein mentions the fact that we are a company with a good 60 employees, but above all 28 nationalities. We can only say: Welcome aboard, Houssein, and great that you have already added some additional facets to our diversity.

35-year-old Frenchman Houssein holds a master’s degree in Marketing and Applied Management from the IDRAC Business School in Paris and a master’s degree in International Business from the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce et de Gestion de Paris. He has gained professional experience in various sectors. For example, he served as a Business Controller for France for the medical and travel security services company International SOS. At EBI SA in Paris, an affiliate of Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, he oversaw the global corporate revenue planning and control for Africa and handled trade finance and loan syndication for the sub-Saharan Africa commodity market. And in the IT sector, Houssein was responsible for EMEA operations at the German branch of the computer software and service company PTC in Unterschleißheim near Munich.

For TSCNET, Houssein has been working successfully to improve financial processes and financial management since his start with us. Of course, he appreciates not only the international working environment at our premises, but also the dynamic growth of the company to which he wants to actively contribute. We are pleased that our finance area is already giving a good account of itself!

Woman of the world with a we-feeling

14.05.2019

“This is the most important member of the team”, says Michael S. Hyatt, and as a successful manager and bestselling author on leadership and business growth, he should actually know. Who he is talking about? The Executive Assistant! Hyatt has developed a compelling idea about this role: “A good executive assistant is like an air-traffic controller for your whole life.” TSCNET Services in Munich now also has such a marvel: 39-year-old Rebecca Brauer, called Becky.

Born in London, she has more than 15 years of experience as an Executive Assistant and has worked for global organisations such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Barclays Capital, Deloitte, and Citigroup in cities such as London, New York, Moscow, Berlin, and Brussels. She gained a wide range of international experience in different cultures and took on a variety of administrative and project management responsibilities, as well as co-ordinating on-site and off-site events.

In addition to important clients and other stakeholders, Becky on her travels around the globe fortunately also met her husband, a confirmed Bavarian, whom we owe her move to Germany (however, they got to know each other thousands of kilometres away, in California, but that’s a different story). Since New Year’s Day 2017, the two are the parents of an enchanting little daughter. “Becoming a mother has been the biggest challenge yet most rewarding role of my life,” Becky says. Now at TSCNET Services she wants to master both roles and “make my daughter proud”. With all her experience in culturally different and diverse environments she wants to support the management team and the whole company in their development and make them even stronger.

“I felt like I was going to be joining a team of highly skilled, multi-cultural individuals who all have a common aim to make TSCNET a thriving company within their industry and provide exceptional services to their clients,” reports Becky. And she quickly gained traction in her new position. “I felt that the people at TSCNET were very welcoming and had a real ‘family’ feel about the culture right away.”

As always in life, there will also be setbacks and hurdles to overcome. For such times, Michael S. Hyatt had a quote from Edward Everett Hale on the wall of his CEO office: “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something: and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” This by the way also goes very well with air-traffic controllers!

Welcome as a new Office Assistant, Jara Ibañez!

06.01.2019

Office assistant positions can be found in all sectors and have a broad spectrum of skills. They are sometimes referred to as secretaries or administrative assistants, but what they actually do is help make an office work. The tasks are very different, often based on the specialisations they have, how much professional experience they possess and what career aspirations they have. This also goes for Jara Ibañez, who joined TSCNET Services as an Office Assistant within the Corporate Services unit at the end of 2018.

The 30-year-old Spanish has successfully completed a vocational training in administration and finance. She grew up in San Sebastián in the north of the country and lived on the Spanish Mediterranean coast before moving to Munich in autumn 2017. In the course of her life, however, she has already travelled to 17 countries. “They all taught me something lasting and revealed a part of their culture to me,” says Jara. Besides travelling and exploring new countries, sport is her most important leisure activity. “Sport is the best way for me to get away from the daily routines,” she explains.

For a total of five years, Jara worked for a manufacturer of dance- and sportswear in administration and customer service. Then she felt a need for change and professional growth, exploring a new culture and challenging herself. At TSCNET, she mainly supports in administrative and financial work. She is particularly attracted by the interesting industry with its advanced technologies and the company with its team spirit and great potential for personal and professional development. “I felt the warm and dynamic environment right away during my interview,” says Jara, “and that proved to be true during the first few weeks here.”

Welcome, Daniela! HR all without island status

02.12.2018

Sardinia is famous for its white sandy beaches, a wild, dreamlike nature, idyllic mountain villages and cultural treasures from around eight millennia. But the inhabitants of the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily are also known for their scepticism towards strangers – “whoever crosses the sea is a thief”, is a famous saying. But this does not at all apply to Daniela Sanna, a native of Sardinia. The new HR & Development Manager in the Corporate Services unit is on the contrary decidedly cosmopolitan and enjoys traveling.

The now 37-year-old has a Master’s degree in Communication Systems in International Relations from the University for Foreigners in Perugia (Università per Stranieri di Perugia) on the Italian mainland and has been to Poland and even to faraway Japan during her studies thanks to scholarships. Now she has spent several years working in recruitment, first in Italy, then in Germany. She has worked for such well-known companies as Intel, Texas Instruments, Airbus and Huawei. Also at TSCNET, she will focus on employee recruitment including on- and offboarding. Although the energy sector is new for her, there is a cross connection as well: Her father worked for Italy’s largest energy supplier.

Obviously, another Sardinian proverb seems to fit better in Daniela’s case: “When the wind comes, you should use it”. What is meant is that one should take an opportunity that comes up. We are pleased that the winds in the Tyrrhenian Sea led her to Munich and that she has seized the chance with us.

Welcome, Juan! Expertise for a prudent PM

19.04.2018

TSCNET Services can introduce a new Project Management Officer (PMO): Juan Ramirez, coming from Colombia. He is part of the Corporate Services team, but will also help with the structuring and management of projects from other teams. The new co-worker brings a lot of experience: Juan has worked in the banking industry for five years as accountant, business administrator, and financial expert in the areas of financial analysis, corporate strategy, and project management. He decided to leave Colombia for Germany to do his Master of Business Administration in Leipzig at the Graduate School of Management (“HHL Leipzig”).

Now he has joined TSCNET Services as PMO. “Working with TSCNET combines three elements that are essential to fulfil my professional and personal ambitions,” says Juan. “Firstly, my role as PMO is not only a fantastic challenge in the face of the company’s rapid growth, it also allows me to contribute my own ideas and also to implement them. Secondly, I am attracted by the amazing work environment with its truly open character and a really international team. And thirdly, I can learn here from an industry that has the power to help shape the future of a country.” As they would say in Colombia: “¡Bienvenido al equipo!”
