That's Me. That's Leica.
For over one hundred years now, Leica Camera have stood for tradition, precision and innovation. The real strength behind the brand, however, are the many people around the globe, whose expertise, love and passion ensure that Leica can concentrate on what counts – das Wesentliche, the essential in photography. From the lens grinder to the director, from the gallery owner to the marketing manager – every week five Leica employees from all over the world will tell you for the next four weeks why they are proud to work for Leica.
"My journey with the Leica brand started in January 2007. I set-up the Leica office in Asia in 2008, followed by other subsidiaries and the opening of more than 14 stores. We changed the way we treated our customers and partners, making them friends and family members. It’s a challenging journey; but they say that when you love what you do it’s not a job any more. It’s an honour to be a part of this team and unique brand, and I’m so grateful to meet fantastic people on a daily basis." Sunil Kaul, Managing Director for Leica Camera Asia Pacific
"I started working for Leica 23 years ago after finishing school. I love my job as a lens edge sander, and, in fact, being at Leica is like being with my family." Ana Márcia Almeida, Leica Camera Portugal
"In April 2007, just 13 years ago, I moved from Hermès Japan to Leica Camera Japan, which was a joint-venture of Hermès and Leica. Both companies share craftsmanship as a common value. There are so many things I like about Leica, but for me the best one is that I have the chance to meet so many different, wonderful people who love Leica! I still continue on this unique and happy journey." Kazunori Fuke, Managing Director for Leica Camera Japan
"I started my education in precision engineering at Leitz Wetzlar in 1982, and I was part of the launch of Leica Camera AG in Wetzlar in 1986. I have been fascinated by this traditional company ever since, and I am very proud to work here for Leica in Wetzlar." Uwe Henß, Leica Camera AG
"I’ve been working as Service Expert in the Human Resources department at Leica Camera AG headquarters in Wetzlar for 17 years. For me it’s more than just a work place. I’m proud to be a part of the World of Leica. Through my job, I meet many new and diverse people. I like people, numbers, and I’m open for challenges. I love my job! I enjoy my passion for photography during my spare time." Nadine Thomas, Leica Camera AG
