51-year-old Julia Weise Hellum is more widely travelled than most other Danes, having spent time travelling, living and working in the UK, USA, Italy and Chile,
After years living abroad, she has returned to Denmark to take on the role of our new Key Account Manager. She will be spreading awareness of our drains in Europe and Asia, which means that her workplace will be global.
“I’m simply looking forward to travelling the world with a Danish product in my hands. I’ve lived abroad for many years, so can definitely vouch for the fact that Danish design has an excellent reputation. Unidrain’s products fully live up to this standing and I look forward to demonstrating that to the outside world,” enthuses Julia Weise Hellum.
Julia originally trained as a market economist and previously worked with Danish and international brands within both the fashion and construction industries. This combination of travel and industry experience, makes her the right person for Unidrain.
This is what René Risom, our International Sales Manager, has to say:
“Julia brings solid knowledge and experience from the construction industry. At the same time, she has lived abroad for many years, and thus knows all about building networks and making contacts abroad. We’re very happy to have brought Julia on board,” he says.
The experience of being successful abroad is something that Julia Weise Hellum herself sees as a strength in her new position.
“When you’ve lived abroad for as many years as I have, you find it much easier to accept that there are lots of different ways of doing things. I feel that the humility I’ve acquired through my time abroad is important when it comes to creating new relationships,” she explains.
Julia Weise Hellum lives in Faxe and has two adult children.
