In our purchasing department, everything revolves around our Europe-wide wirkaufendeinauto.de branch network, from its expansion to the support of the existing branches. On site we are the first contact for our customers and help make the sale a unique experience. No matter if it’s an Opel Corsa or a Porsche Spyder – we’re interested in every car!
At our branches, we are the first personal contact person for customers. We take care of them from the very beginning and carry out the complete vehicle sales to ensure a smooth process. Besides taking care of customers, we’re also responsible for the location’s supply and act as an important interface to our headquarters in Berlin. Every day is different, but we always keep cool, even in stressful situations.
As regional managers we are responsible for the regional purchasing business and are a driving force towards a smooth customer experience. Our main job is about coordinating and improving processes in each branch and between different teams. We are the point of contact between our managers, other teams within AUTO1 Group and our employees in the branches. The branch team with all its requests, ideas and challenges is the main anchor in our work.
Together with our service assistants we represent our company in the wkda branches. When evaluating vehicles it’s crucial to stay connected to our customers. As purchasers we take pride in our focus on service, our understanding of cars and our empathy. Every 30 minutes we meet completely new people with new vehicles.
