Learning from Different Mentalities

Women in leadership positions at Busch

Pepi Benito had already worked for Busch, years before Busch Spain was actually founded. Since 1973, besides her studies she was Administration Manager for a company that at that time distributed Busch products in the country. In 1980, Pepi Benito started to represent Busch directly in Spain, thus laying the foundation for the Spanish sales company which has been established in 1982. Between 1982 and 2002 she was Deputy Manager of Busch Spain and then became General Manager. Today, she is responsible for more than 70 employees.

Pepi Benito remembers her first manager meetings, in which she was the only woman surrounded by male engineers. In the meantime, other women have followed her example. A number of female engineers now work at Busch Spain and their influence is noticeable and enriches the company.

In general, Pepi Benito no longer sees any difference in the opportunities offered to men and women at Busch Spain. When it comes to hiring, she herself doesn't care what gender an applicant is. It is the qualifications and attitude that count.

As a global company, Busch has employees all over the world who belong to a wide variety of cultures. Pepi Benito sees this as a great opportunity.
We can learn a lot by dealing with people of different mentalities.
