Christopher deWind is an old hand at Continental. More than 38 years ago, his career began in his home country of Malaysia within the mixing department as a technical tester. Since then, he has had a lot of professional experience and used the various opportunities at Continental.
In 1983 he moved to the technical laboratory as a technical assistant. During this time, he attended technical courses to expand his knowledge in rubber and plastics. His career in sales began at the end of the 80’s. After further changes in various departments, for example in the technical rubber industry, Chris deWind made a big step in 2010: he moved to Australia to work as national sales manager for Commercial Specialty Tires. This work has fulfilled him every day ever since: "Working for continental in the CST division has always bought exciting challenges. With the diverse product offering and range of costumer expectations".
He particularly appreciates the wide range of products and the many innovations at Commercial Specialty Tires, which always make working varied: "What drives me in this position is being part of the strategic planning team to develop and grow the product segments in industrial, material handling, construction, mining and now in agricultural tires. The innovations Commercial Specialty Tires brings to the wheel segment is what's separate us from the rest". Christopher deWind feels at home. In Australia and at Specialty Tires. "The Specialty Team is like family to me. Do what needs to be done, supporting each other to ensure success".
