A2B That’s me!
Today we would like to introduce you to Mrs. Katharina Hagl. Mrs. Hagl works in accounting and is the girl for everything at A2B | mobility in motion. Meet the daughter of Sabine Richartz, owner of A2B | mobility in motion, and find out what she answered to our 10 questions.
1. Since when do you work for A2B | mobility in motion?
I am working full-time since 01.04.2014 but as a daughter of the family business I am actually already working there my whole life. 😊
2. Main words to describe your work?
Versatile, exciting and the motto at our office “every day something new”
3. Why did you choose the chauffeur profession?
I would like to “change” the question. Why did you choose A2B| mobility in motion?
My mother is driving the company A2B | mobility in motion, she always seeks for new options, challenges and offers. With the size of the company itself, the volume of work has also steadily increased over the years. This was the reason I gave up my trained profession as a physiotherapist to enter full-time the family business and push the success of the still young company forward. I am very glad to be part of the great A2B| mobility in motion team.
4. If money would not matter which car would you drive private?
Audi A6 Allroad Quattro
5. Which memories associated with your work do you value the most?
On my first drive for A2B | mobility in motion, I could pick-up an Arab family in Munich with a colleague. The guests were already 30 minutes late. My colleague decided, however, that we should wait for the family, since it is my first trip and at the beginning of my driving activity a No Show (= passengers don’t come) would be no positive entry. After 45 minutes, the family of three came in a Passat. In the front a man and a teenager, and in the back of the car, hidden under a lot of bags and boxes, sat the mother. The man explained to my colleague and me that we should help to pack the boxes and close them. With tape, we have borrowed from the car rental we packed 8 boxes and 4 large cartons. Along with the 6 suitcases we stowed everything into our vehicles and after a total of 1.5 hours waiting and packing time we went from Munich to the airport.
We ordered a porter, after consultation with our passengers. My colleague informed the woman that it will cost 2 € for each piece of luggage and if she would agree with it. She agreed. The porter came on time and helped us to unload the luggage. The porter accompanied the guests to the check-in desk and so the trip, we thought at least, was completed for me and my colleague. I wished the porter a goodbye and a lot of fun with all the luggage (I was really surprised about so much luggage) The Porter said, “Oh no problem, we have this every day and smiled”.
For me the day was over with this one trip and I could call it a day. My colleague had another ride and went on to the next guests.
The next morning, my colleague told me that he had come back to the airport, the porter, two airline employees and the police were talking to the guests we had brought. They did not want to pay the porter. After perpetual discussion and the presence of the police, the guests eventually paid.
For me, still an exciting and incredible story, which was my first drive for A2B | mobility in motion.
6. If you had a superhero power, what would it be?
Flying – to always arrive from terminal to terminal in time, when events are happening at the airport.
7. Which three things should you always travel with?
Sun cream, a book and my husband.
8. What song do you prefer when driving?
“Auf uns” by Andreas Bourani. Although it is the WM song from 2014, however, the song also came out just in the month, in which I started working at A2B | mobility in motion and describes the cooperation with my family at A2B very well.
9. Why should I trust A2B?
We are not just a chauffeur and limousine service with different vehicles, we put our heart and soul into it. We love the daily challenges of our customers, to redesign the customer’s uncertainties (how do I get there, where do I have to go …), to recognize and carry out the wishes of the customers and to give every customer the certainty of always coming safely from A to B.
10. Your favorite wise saying?
“At the end of the day, most of the things are done by itself.”
