Giving my kids a good upbringing

Fernando Luis Braun

What exactly do you do in Argentina?­

I am a process engineer and work in the CEP division, which focuses on the statistical verification of processes. I am currently working in the Torque Center and am ­concentrating on updating a schedule for controls. I am also responsible for compiling statistics for measurements made in assembly, and am involved in planning in-house work start-ups and drawing up work instructions.

What has been your best experience at Volkswagen so far?

One of my best experiences was being involved in the development of the Amarok pickup truck from day one. We are still devoting a lot of energy to making this vehicle a little better each and every day. Overall, I really enjoy working at Volkswagen, because the company allows me to reach many of my personal goals – for example purchasing my own home and a car, or giving my kids a good upbringing.

What should colleagues be sure not to miss when visiting the Pacheco plant and the Greater Buenos Aires area?

Anyone who comes to Buenos Aires will have a unique experience. The city welcomes visitors with open arms, making them feel right at home. This is largely due to the warm-heartedness and openness of the people, but is also because of the many attractions, the food, and the cultural sights. There’s a good reason why Buenos Aires is often referred to as the Paris of South America. It possesses, for example, more ­theaters than any other city in the world. And don’t forget the tango – Buenos Aires is the world capital of this dance form.
