- About us
I am Olivier Beck, nickname Oli. I am the production manager within our team. But I am also in charge of the warehouse, maintenance, deliveries, video shoots, etc.
Primarily, my job is to produce, pack and store all our products. I also make sure that all our products are delivered on time to our customers.
"It gives me satisfaction to know that every bag or bucket of TerraCottem shipped worldwide is made, packed and shipped by me."
Before I knew TerraCottem, I was a keen drone pilot. I still do this regularly to make beautiful images of our events or of the projects TerraCottem is working on.
I've never been a big fan of "going to school". So, I learned most of my skills by just doing it 😊. When I joined TerraCottem I did get help from my predecessor Gilbert and from the colleagues.
I am the father of twins. My partner has 4 children. Together we make a beautiful big family.
I spend my free time on a lot of hobbies. They range from DJ, motorcycle, traveling, swimming to event planner. I am a big fan of American football. I have been playing football for 31 years. Currently I am the Head Coach of the Izegem Tribes.
What do you do in the garden to save water?
"Not much really. I do not have a green thumb. But if my partner puts an annual, she obviously mixes TerraCottem with the potting soil."
If you can travel in time, what year are you going and why?
"The 60's. If only for the music, clothes and especially the cars!"
How did you get into your job at TerraCottem?
"Quite a coincidence. I was looking for a job that I could combine with raising my 2 children. TerraCottem was a perfect fit."
What is the best professional advice you’ve ever received?
"Listen to what your boss and colleagues say and give it your own twist to do a little better than expected."
Favourite aspect of your work?
"The variety and knowing that every grain of TerraCottem used anywhere in the world has passed through my hands 😉"
What's the best thing you've ever eaten?
"That was in Las Vegas. Pasta "Chicken Alfredo". I did not know it. It was recommended to me. It is super tasty."
What is the first thing you do when you come to the office?
"Turn on the lights and wish colleagues a good morning. Then check the emails."
If you could live in any city, where would it be and why?
"Without a doubt Huntington Beach in California. Not only a beautiful city by the water. It is also quiet. In addition, all the good things about L.A. are about an hour's drive away."
What is one thing that surprised you about working at TerraCottem?
"For me it was undoubtedly the fact that such a small team can get so much done. And to be one of the best in soil conditioning worldwide."
