Part of the family

Rehau has appointed Sergio Fonseca as HR director for the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.

Although new to Rehau UK, Sergio has been with the global business for 16 years and was previously based in his home country of Brazil, where he was responsible for the HR function in the Rehau South American businesses.

He places great importance on developing individuals to bring out their abilities and make them feel a valued part of the team.

Sergio said: “I aim to keep the spirit of Rehau alive in our colleagues in the business and ensure everyone knows they are essential to our team and ongoing success.

“My approach is also to have an open dialogue policy and we actively encourage feedback at all levels. My main priority is to ensure that all our colleagues are engaged, prepared and well-skilled for their roles so that they can continue their personal development within the company.

“We have a very important focus on developing the talents within the business and my own appointment highlights the possibilities to move around the Rehau group, whether that be in the same location or in a different country entirely.”
