At Mondi, we take pride in nurturing talent and fostering a culture of continuous learning and growth. Sruthi Panchanatham's journey exemplifies our empowered people commitments to provide diverse opportunities for personal and professional development.

Sruthi’s story 

Sruthi's start at Mondi began during her search for summer internships after completing her bachelor's degree. In July 2021, she joined Mondi as a Facility Management Intern, starting her journey at the reception in the Vienna Group office. This initial role provided Sruthi with a firsthand understanding of our culture and values.  

Throughout her internship, Sruthi continuously demonstrated her interest in exploring her career path opportunities within Mondi. In October 2021, she transitioned to our Flexible Packaging division, seizing the opportunity to broaden her skill set and expertise in the business unit. As part of the Speciality Kraft Paper team, Sruthi contributed to various initiatives, showcasing her adaptability and enthusiasm for learning. 

Always ask. I believe asking is very crucial to one's growth and learning.

Following the completion of her internship, Sruthi focused on her education, pursuing her master's studies and successfully absolving her exchange semester in India.  

In June 2023, Sruthi returned to Mondi, eager to resume her career path with us. Rejoining as a Junior Product Portfolio and Business Development Manager, she brought with her a wealth of knowledge and a renewed sense of purpose. Although she temporarily left Mondi to pursue her academic goals, Sruthi's journey reflects the flexibility and dedication inherent also in our company culture.
