THE ENGINE BEHIND THE COMPANY - OUR EMPLOYEES


MELANIE ROTTMANN - JUNIOR CSR SPECIALIST

 

Growing up in the Swiss Alps laid the foundation for my strong relationship with nature and my tireless passion for the natural environment and in particular for the mountains.


What's your passion?

I love freeriding. It´s incredible how much freedom a splitboard or a pair of telemarks can give to move freely through snow-covered mountain landscapes. This smooth uphill movement and the lightness of riding down a carefully picked line leave me standing at the top of the mountain with a big smile and a fulfilled heart. 


What`s your favorite part of the working day?

Every morning, I`m riding my E-bike along a 10km trail through a forest and along apple fields, wine yards and a river. At lunch, employees voluntarily offer yoga, bouldering and stretching classes and in the evenings you can always find somebody to join for outdoor activities in the surrounding Dolomites. I love that every working day just offers such a great work-life balance.


What's your passion?

Life. It´s exciting to keep exploring new facets of it.


Why do you like to work at SALEWA?

For me, it´s about the authenticity that originates from being a family-owned business located in the heart of the Dolomites. A bit like an old tree with constantly changing leaves, SALEWA has deeply rooted values in the rich soils of Italy´s Southern Tyrol but operates in a highly dynamic business environment. This gives a clear value-based direction, but at the same time allows room for change.
