My story at LEONI

I'm Fanny Marlene Duarte, I have been at LEONI since May 2016. I'm a graduate in Production Technology. I started as a production operator and from there, my career was on the rise. I am currently working as Segment Leader for the CV client, overseeing projects such as Caterpillar, IVECO, CNH, AGCO, with approximately 150 people under my charge.

I began my journey at LEONI as a production operator in the CV line, then moved to the prototype department, developing harnesses for new products. In various departments, including engineering, I focused on enhancing production capabilities, staff ergonomics, and production planning. I also implemented English programs and 5S initiatives, leading people and planning continuous improvement actions. Currently, as Segment Leader, I focus on production capacity, timely deliveries, harness planning, discipline, responsibility, and management. I approach each role with commitment and gratitude for the growth opportunities provided by the company.

This is my job

Start of the day: I wake up at 03:45 in the morning, enjoy mate and terere (traditional drinks), and arrive at the plant by 05:00 for a quiet breakfast. I handle morning tasks like absenteeism and production planning, organizing meetings with supervisors.

Morning: I ensure raw material availability for the day and week, giving guidelines in a 15-minute meeting. I participate in management meetings to discuss issues and results.

Lunch time: I relax during lunch, check in with family, and return to work after dessert.

Evening: I review first shift production, advise the second shift, and meet with supervisors to address absenteeism until 5 p.m.

End of the day: I relax at home, shower, have dinner, and if needed, check on production. I attend English classes provided by LEONI until 01:00 a.m. before sleeping.

I am thrilled to engage with my colleagues. We've fostered a familial bond, spending ample time together in unity, perseverance, communication, and commitment. Our daily collaboration strengthens our connection.
