Especially in such stormy weathers as today it is the more important to keep your knowhow up-to-date – which you can hardly accomplish alone. Even though I am not on-site so often I know that I can rely on my colleagues and their knowhow in Berlin.”

Up to now I’ve received lots of gratitude when I've presented solutions for our customers, and that makes me very happy. I try to be the person I am and no one else. Only then am I able to grow. ‘Be – don’t try to become,’ said the philosopher, Osho, whom I find very inspiring.”

Since she knew Globalnorm from 2012 on and accompanied the conversion process from a non-descript niche provider to the leading institution for standards management and product compliance, she now continues this path all the more intensively. Thanks to the wealth of her experience and being full of ideas, she‘ll make sure that GLOBALNORM can support more companies with its know-how and solutions to minimize their product liability risks and grow successfully.

“After understanding once what GLOBALNORM is about and how important their work even for us ultimate consumers might be it lay close to my heart to transport this competence and passion for these highly specialized topics outwards. Done in a way that deliberately sets itself apart from the bone dry world of standards and guidelines. Because this is how the people at GLOBALNORM are: fun-loving, incredible smart and cordial.“

“Like Henry Ford said: If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.

Maya Loerzer

“When I’m asked what kind of company I work for, I always have to think back to my childhood. Whenever our parents tried to explain to me what standardization, product compliance etc. are, you could almost see the question mark on my face. In the meantime I can summarize our work myself in an understandable way. And it fills me with pride to work for a family business that understands the value of good service, knowledge sharing and every individual employee.
