Career in the trade
Uli Kiechle: From apprentice to managing director at the Alois Müller Group
“Craft? That means working hard and earning little!” Unfortunately, Uli Kiechle knows that many people still think this way. But there are good career opportunities waiting in the trades, as his own CV at the Alois Müller Group shows.
With an apprenticeship as a central heating and ventilation fitter, Ulrich Kiechle started his career at Alois Müller GmbH on 01.09.2000. Since 01.01.2022, he has been Managing Director of Müller Service GmbH and is responsible for service management and the development of the service structure.
Already during his apprenticeship, Ulrich Kiechle showed a lot of commitment, therefore he was encouraged by the company founder Alois Müller early on and handled construction sites, such as the youth center at TSV 1860 Munich, by himself from the 2nd year of his apprenticeship.
Since then, his career has continued upwards: journeyman’s certificate, master craftsman’s training, business economist and further training as an energy consultant at the Energy and Environment Center (eza) in Kempten. After the further training, he took over the construction management for energy systems, new buildings of single and multi-family houses as well as smaller industrial projects at the side of his experienced colleague Hans Demmeler, in addition to sales. Since 2013, he has acted jointly with him as an authorized signatory at Müller Service GmbH. Now followed the next career step into the management.
His success is due on the one hand to his own drive and on the other hand to the great trust and support of the two shareholders as well as CEOs Andreas Müller and Steffen Müller. A plan for the career ladder was systematically worked out and step by step the tasks in the family business grew for Uli Kiechle.
“For young people in particular, Ulrich Kiechle’s career is inspiring and shows what a successful career in crafts can look like. Modern craftsmanship is no longer just about being a hands-on worker. In recent years, new job profiles and qualification paths have emerged for many traditional trades,” points out CEO Andreas Müller and expresses his thanks to Uli Kiechle for the trusting cooperation, his commitment and wishes him continued success for the future.
