Fred Cordes came to Zeppelin just by accident: At the age of 26, a friend from university forwarded him a job offer in which Zeppelin was looking for junior managers. After a successful assessment center, he landed the job and started his career as junior manager at Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH. We’ve talked to Fred Cordes about how he received a wheel loader as a child, the down-to-earth attitude of the construction industry and how Zeppelin differs from its competitors.
