The work of Controlling is split into three main responsibilities: Financial Planning & Reporting, Strategic & Investment Controlling and International Project Controlling.

While each of these have a different focus, the overall goal remains consistent: setting and driving global controlling standards and processes and providing decision support to executive management to steer our business.

"For me personally, I consider work-life balance as extremely important. Our work culture really enables me to steer my own agenda."

Controlling refers to the process of measuring business performance and proposing ways to optimise value, including strategies related to business process optimization. As Group Controlling, we are the unbiased economic navigators of this process for ALDI SÜD globally. This requires all of us to have an analytical mindset and an investigative disposition – we constantly strive to understand the story behind the figures, surveying our business to see the wood for the trees. We don’t just analyse from darkened office corners either. Being true business partners, we maintain open and direct communication with all business functions, as well as senior management circles, putting ourselves (and our impactful reports) very much into the limelight.
