Der High Mobility Pool 2011 – David Seger im PorträtAfter prevailing over more than 300 international applicants, David Seger started as one of five participants in the first High Mobility Pool where the candidates were recruited Europe-wide. The Swedish native completed his Masters in Industrial Engineering & Management at the Linköping Institute of Technology in Sweden and then gained practical experience as a project manager in the oil and gas industry in Norway.  This experience was a great help in his first High Mobility Pool project for VAE Railway Systems in Australia. „The High Mobility Pool is a useful resource that brings new skills and creativity to our projects at voestalpine companies all over the world. For me, it offers a unique opportunity to visit several different sites to learn about what voestalpine does and how the group operates internationally. The objective of my first project is to analyze and give recommendations on how to improve the productivity of a VAE Railway Systems turnout producer in Mackay, Australia. This project is interesting because of its complexity and its affect on people’s everyday workplace. My role is to lead the project,involve a lot of people and find the best recommendations,“ said David Seger.

Participants are assigned new projects every four to six months. Between projects, the High Mobility Pool participants meet and attend workshops together where they can share and report on their experiences.  „The High Mobility Pool is an excellent way to get an overview of many companies, industries and markets within the voestalpine group. Throughout the program, I have been a part of the railway industry in Australia, the tool-steel industry in Sweden and the automotive industry in Germany and Austria. The learning curve has been steep in all projects due to the versatile industries and unique challenges. I have learned to better handle a changing environment and to work with people with more experience and expertise. I have become better at quickly understanding a topic and adapt to it, and also been given the chance to dive deep. I am now at Böhler-Uddeholm in Norway. I want to see if we can develop more business on the Norwegian oil and gas market.”
